Devil’s Den is formed by a karst window, in which the roof over a subterranean river has collapsed, exposing the water to the open surface

It is privately owned, and operated as a SCUBA diving training and recreational facility.

The water in the underground river is a constant 72 °F (22 °C) degrees.

The cave expands below water level (a shape described as an “inverted mushroom”) to up to 200 feet (61 m) across.

The maximum depth of the cave reaches 54 ft with the surface diameter being 120 ft.

The cave was opened to the public as a dive site in the early 1990s.

Underwater passages extend from the pool under the opening, from 5 feet (1.5 m) to 54 feet (27 m) under the surface of the water.

The passage called chamber 3, 70 feet (21 m) underwater, contained animal and human remains and artifacts.

The animal remains, which appeared to be associated with the human remains and artifacts, were from extinct (Pleistocene) species, including mastodons, ground sloths, camels, horses, dire wolves, bog lemmings, Florida spectacled bears, saber-toothed cats, and peccaries.

The human remains have been dated to about 7,500 BC.
