Bloomington Cave management plan comment period closes Feb. 25
Bloomington Cave, near St. George, is a popular recreational destination for Washington County and northern Utah residents as well as caving enthusiasts from across the United States.
With more than a mile of complex passages, the cave’s terrain requires both appropriate equipment and the technical caving skills to navigate and explore safely.
In addition to its recreational allure, Bloomington Cave also possesses highly valuable and unusual geologic formations and provides habitat for several bat species, reptiles, insects and other unique and delicate cave-dwelling life forms. Unfortunately, many of these geological and biological resources have been degraded by vandalism, graffiti, campfires and littering in recent years.
