If your looking for non commercial caves to explore, I would suggest you go to the NSS Home page under organization...grottos...and find a grotto near where you live. They all have monthly meetings. Go to a meeting and get to know the cavers in your area. They are usually ore than happy to train a newbie. No one on this forum will give you cave locations.

In addition to checking out your local grotto, you can go to the Northeastern Cave Conservancy website:

PM Sent, you'll love the northeastern cavers you get underground with, it takes a special kind of fool to truly enjoy our kind of caves.
