Bear Creek Cave is exactly what its name describes, a cave. It is closed to the public and its location is not disclosed due to the sensitive nature of the site and past vandalism issues. This ninth-largest cave in the state is home to several bat species and a number of cave-preferring and endemic invertebrate species.
Though the page for Bear Creek Cave was removed from the DNR’s website, I was able to determine the location of Bear Creek Cave years ago and stopped on the side of the road to take a few photos. Not a lot more can be said about this site without permission to access and explore.
More of my photos (and full-res) from Bear Creek Cave can be viewed here.
Just under 400 more blog posts to go! Well, actually a few more than that remain; counting SNA’s delisted since I started and a few SNA’s to be designated, the current total is 689, though hopefully, that will increase!
If you would like to help support this project, please consider a donation. There are many SNA’s yet to visit and even more to revisit and I ultimately plan to write a book about my adventures. Thank you!
