Cave and spring located in Rolater Park. Cave Spring, Georgia The town derived its name from the cave and natural spring. In 1832 the town was formed by English and Scotch-Irish ancestors. Today the cave is open for self guided tours during the summer and is closed in the winter. Admission is $1.00 per person. Though it's not Mammoth Cave, it is a great place to take the kids and cool off. Well worth the admission. The spring that exits the cave is safe to drink. Its average flow is 2 million gallons a day. It feeds a lake with ducks and is loaded with trout. No fishing is allowed except for a youth tournament once a year. You will probably see visitors and locals fill up jugs, water bottles and empty cups for a cool drink. The cave is lit so no flashlights are needed.
