Mitchell Caverns

Mitchell Caverns, located in the heart of the Providence Mountains State Recreation Area, is a popular tourist attraction. The park is 60 miles west of Needles on Interstate 40. Spectacular and intricate limestone formations found include; stalagmites, stalactites, helictites, lily pads, draperies, curtains and cave popcorn. First opened by Jack Mitchell in 1932, the caverns were purchased by the State in 1954. They are the only limestone caverns in the State Park System.
