Cave

Not to be mistaken with the Civil Defense Caves (which are near by), the Ice Caves are about an hour North outside of Rexburg. The Ice Caves were originally formed as lava tubes. Over the years they have maintained fairly cold temperatures and as moisture and water seeped in, it froze. The ice now remains frozen year round and makes for an awesome time. The ice caves are a few hundred yards deep and require good footwear, warm clothes and a flashlight to navigate.

Head north out of town, as if you’re driving to the sand dunes. The turn off is just approximately 28 miles past Walmart (when I drove it, my odometer said exactly 28.2 miles). You will know you have arrived at the turn-off when you cross over a cattle guard (a big grated metal thing that crosses the road), and see a white sign on the right side of the road that says, “Entering Clark County.”

Really cool caves! Pretty cold and slick in there, and nice ice crystals on top and bottom! The dirt road you turn on to was pretty bad though, I'd definitely want some good tires and pretty good clearance. Also, I wish I'd known before hand that it's almost three miles on hat crazy rocky road! We almost turned back at 2 miles, but the caves made it worth it!
