Maribel New Hope Cave

We have been excavating glacial sediments out of the cave for years now. Today, it is a significant show cave for our area! We have already found more walking height passage than just about any other cave in the entire Eastern half of Wisconsin! In fact one section has 13 foot high ceilings! Even cave formations and a water sculptured nine foot high rock pillar exist in the cave! We offer free guided tours on a limited basis.

Hours of Operation

May-September: Third Sunday of the month & Second Sunday of October, 10am-3pm. 2013 Dates: May 19, June 16, July 21, Aug 18, Sept 15 & Oct 13.


The cave is located just one mile from the Interstate Highway 43, exit at Maribel, Wisconsin. Just go east a short distance to the first intersection, then turn left, or north, and the county park entrance is about a half mile up the road on the right.
