Wind Cave National Park

  • Type: Natural Environ

Hidden beneath the rolling prairie of the southern Black Hills is one of the worlds longest caves

Swaying prairie grasses, forested hillsides, and an array of wildlife such as bison, elk, and prairie dogs welcome visitors to one of our country's oldest national parks and one of its few remaining intact prairies. Secreted beneath is one of the world's longest caves, Wind Cave. Named for barometric winds at its entrance, this complex labyrinth of passages contains a unique formation - boxwork. - NPS
