This is a camel/cave cricket (Orthoptera: Rhaphidophoridae). These sometimes also are called ‘sprickets’ because of a fancied resemblance to a cross between a spider and a cricket. They basically are nuisance pests that do little if any real harm. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
