The Devil’s Den cave – Prehistoric Spring – one of the oldest ancient places of North America. In that cave were found the artefacts, humans’ remains aged for 7500 years BC, and fossilized remains of some animals from Pleistocene era and Ancient Quaternary period, including the remains of mastodons, sloths, lemmings, spectacled bears, saber-toothed tigers and peccaries.
Devil’s Den cave was formed by the karst window of underground river, which’s arch collapsed, after what river stayed at the opened place.
The water in that underground crystal clean river is always warm, with the temperature +22 C for entire year long.
When outside of the cave gets colder, the steam is rising over water, which gives an impression of the devil’s smoking boiler.
Under the water cave expands in size, creating a shape of flipped mushroom till the depth of 61 meters.
Four underwater caves are continuing the main pool at a distance of 21 meters, and their maximal depth is 16.45 meters.
In 1993 the Devil’s Den spring was purchased into the private ownership; after the expanding of main entrance and general reconstruction, Devil’s Den spring, with its 33 000 000-years-old rock formations, stalactites and fossils, turned into the very popular place with the world’s fame among the lovers of diving.
