Nearby Caves

Soon to relocate to White Co. TN. Would like to know if there are any caves in or near the Doe Creek watershed east of Sparta. No locations, but just wondering. Thanks.

This website (http://www.caverbob.com/state.htm) shows that there are 15 caves that are at least a mile long in White County, Tennessee. I don't know whether or not any of these are within the Doe Creek watershed east of Sparta though.

The 15 caves mentioned are the following:
1)Blue Spring Cave (38 miles of passage)
2)Your Cave (4 miles of passage)
3)Lost Creek Cave (4 miles of passage)
4)Lockwood Cave (3 miles of passage)
5)Great Big Bottom Cave (3 miles of passage)
6)Ghost River Cave (2 miles of passage)
7)Rose Cave (1 mile of passage)
8)Great Expectations (1 mile of passage)
9)Piney Cave (1 mile of passage)
10)Big Boys Canyons Cave (1 mile of passage)
11)Mason River Cave (1 mile of passage)
12)Virgin Falls Cave (1 mile of passage)
13)Ravenscroft Rift Cave (1 mile of passage)
14)Wes Allen Cave (1 mile of passage)
15)John Henry Demps Cave (1 mile of passage)
