Welcome to the Little Egypt Grotto Online

Welcome to the online home of the Little Egypt Grotto.  We are located in the heart of “Little Egypt” in Carbondale, Illinois.  Our grotto enjoys access to numerous caves in southern Illinois and south-east Missouri.

Many of our grotto members have families with young children. We are a family oriented group and we encourage members to include their children and spouses in our caving outings.

The Little Egypt Grotto is dedicated to creating an awareness and appreciation of caves, cave life and the protection of these unique environments. The Grotto is an not-for-profit organization of individuals who are engaged in the study and research of caves and karst features. The Grotto supports and encourages research and promotes cave conservation.

This site is a work in progress so please pardon our dust as we construct our new online presence.
