Cherney Maribel Caves County Park is a exciting natural park for everyone and the generations after us.
Cherney Maribel Caves County Park offers many caves and crevices that are open and accessible by a series of trails to the public when the park is officially open like Coopers Cave, Staircase Cave, Pancake Cave, Tunnel Passage, and Spring Cave by viewing deck only. The park also has some caves that are gated open only for set tours during certain times of the year like Maribel New Hope Cave and the Tartarus Cave System.
Local volunteer groups including the "Wisconsin Speleological Society" have been working in conjunction with Manitowoc County Parks and Planning Commission to systematically excavate the glacially deposited sediments in the passages in order to restore the natural beauty of one of those caves... aptly named "New Hope".
