Black Chasm Cavern Local Links

MOST RECOMMENDED
Our favorite, romantic place to stay near Black Chasm is the historic St. George Hotel in Volcano. Relax in the Whiskey Flat Saloon, enjoy delicious gourmet dinners in the restaurant, savor beautiful views from the balcony of your comfortable room.

For entertainment, check out great performances practically next door at the cozy Cobblestone Theatre during winter or the outdoor amphitheatre during the summer (be sure to bring a picnic) with the Volcano Theatre Company.

Kids love Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park - where you will learn how the MiWuk Indians lived in the area.


In the spring, check out Daffodil Hill to see glorious displays of blossoms - but expect huge crowd
s.
