Crystal Cave Crystal Cave is located in Spring Valley Wisconsin (about 3 1/2 hours from Cave of the Mounds). The cave is thought to have been discovered in 1881 by a local farm boy, William R. Vanasse. In 1991, a new area of the cave was discovered making Crystal Cave the longest cave in Wisconsin. New passageways are being explored and each discovery is always celebrated with much excitement.
While it is not directly related to the cave, we do make a concerted effort to support the overall health of the environment! Thank you to Mia for helping us start this Environmental link sharing!
