Commercial Cave Law and Legal Definition

A commercial cave refers to a cave utilized by the owner for the purposes of exhibition to the general public. It can be a profit or nonprofit enterprise, wherein a fee for entry is collected.

Cave is a naturally occurring void, cavity, recess, or system of interconnecting passages beneath the surface of the earth containing a black zone including natural subterranean water and drainage systems. It does not include mine, tunnel, aqueduct, or other man-made excavation, which is large enough to permit a person to enter.
