\We offer hot and cold beverage service, a ceiling-mounted projector and screen, and a laptop for flash drive use. Box lunch arrangements can also be made. Renters receive a discounted rate if at least 10 participants (over the age of 5) take an hour-long cave tour -- the Lake Area's highest rated cave tour according to Facebook, Google and TripAdvisor. It's a fascinating trip through geologic and human times. You'll learn about the cave's uses by Native Americans, early settlers, civil war guerrillas, moonshiners and more.

This unique conference and event space is actually located inside of Stark Caverns. We have re-created the "ballroom" floor used in the early 1900's with a paved patio surface complete with accent lighting and power outlets. The space is perfect for weddings, speaking events, prayer services, yoga classes or other events where a spectacular and unique background are desired. Most of the year, you can hear water flowing and dripping near the patio area creating an amazing sound experience. The acoustics are incredible as well (and showcased in our annual Carols in the Cavern event). Much of the cave has a constant temperature of 57 degrees, but the Patio Area is close enough to the cave entrance to be impacted by outdoor temperatures. Winter events may be held, but participants need to dress warmly as the temperature is only 20 degrees or so warmer than outside. You can see our tallest set of formations, Onyx Falls, from the Cave Patio area. This area is not available for rental during peak tourist season - Memorial Day through Labor Day, except for after 6 pm on week days and Sunday. No outside food is allowed in the cave and only limited food provided by Stark Caverns. We must be diligent to keep the cave environment natural. Food waste would change the delicate ecosystem.
This conference room is located in the second story of our brand new Visitor Center. It's a beautiful room with wood floors and large windows overlooking the natural beauty of our grounds and pond. There is a 4' wide staircase leading directly up to the room from our back door and a separate restroom upstairs. There are additional restrooms downstairs. This area also serves as our museum featuring display cases filled with Native American and cave artifacts as well as historical photos.
