Climax Caverns

Climax Caverns is one of the largest caves in Dixie and the largest known "dry" cave (above water) in the entire Coastal Plains of the United States. Spelunkers in Atlanta and the University of Florida at Gainesville have mapped several miles of the cave. Climax also has extensive passages and rooms under water. Members of the Florida Underwater Speleological Society at Gainesville mapped large portions of the cave that are under the water level, during the 1960's and 1970's.

Climax Caverns is located about two miles northwest of the small village of Climax in east central Decatur County, in deep Southwest Georgia on the Florida border. The site is about 225 miles south of Atlanta, Georgia and about 42 miles north of Tallahassee, Florida. The cave is named for the nearby village of Climax. The village was named thus because the site was a temporary terminus or end of the track when the railroad was being built from Savannah, Georgia to the Alabama border during the 1800's.
