NUTTY PUTTY CAVE TRIP PLANNER

We are thrilled that you would like to explore the Nutty Putty Cave. We recommend that you first read the information contained on our site about the Nutty Putty Cave. Exploring the cave is a privilege and several steps are needed to gain access permission to enter the cave.

Nutty PuttyGATED: The Nutty Putty Cave is gated, but all qualified and pre-approved groups are invited to make their reservation, complete the forms and paperwork, and then safely explore the cave.

PRIVATE PROPERTY: The cave is located on private property and all visitors must respect the land owner’s property. The other alternative is to fill the entry with concrete and ruin any future for exploring the cave.

PLANNING A TRIP: There are several steps that must be followed to gain permission to the Nutty Putty Cave. Long gone are the days of thousands of ill-equipped visitors taking their “AA” battery flashlight out of the kitchen drawer and heading out for a last minute late night trip to the Nutty Putty Cave. All groups must now be prepared and properly equipped. All trips must be reserved and approved at least 21 days in advance. Reservations can be made up to 5 months in advance via our online reservation system.

So where should I start? We recommend that you complete the following steps.

BEFORE YOUR NUTTY PUTTY TRIP

Now that you have everything above completed and in hand, all you need to do is submit your final request form and submit your payment and security deposit.

  • CAVE ACCESS REQUEST FORM
  • PAYMENT - Each group is required to pay the $10 access management fee as well as place a $75 credit card Key/Lock/Trip Report deposit.
AFTER YOUR NUTTY PUTTY TRIP
  • TRIP REPORT - The Tour Leader is responsible to fill in the Trip Report within 7 days after their visit to the cave. Failure to submit the report will result in the billing of the $75 deposit. The Trip Report is the key step in identifying and resolving issues and hazards at the cave.
GOALS & OBJECTIVES
The above requirements must be followed to preserve the cave, help eliminate rescues, and provide a safe caving experience for decades to come. Failure to comply with the rules and procedures will not be tolerated.
