We took the self-guided tour of the caverns at $9 per person. It started in a little cabin full of artifacts and mementos. The tour starts by walking down a couple of flights of pretty steep, wet, cement stairs. The cool air in the caverns is glorious on a hot day- but the whole time you're going down the stairs,...

This place was a midway stop point on our return road trip. We all loved this! The kids had a blast gem mining. Everyone had a great time touring the caverns. It was refreshing to walk down and feel the cool, crisp air! Bring a sweater if you'd like because one of rooms is a cool 45 degree F. There... More

Driving south we always see the signs and thought would be something to do and say we did; also good way to break up drive. Tour last about 35 minutes, not to chilly below so you can wear shorts and maybe jacket if you get cold easy. The caverns are nice but real big like other caverns in Ohio. Tour... More

We visited Olentangy Indian Caverns on the spur of the moment yesterday with our grandkids (ages 12,10, and 4). What a great little spot! The tour was wonderful and our guide was fun, informative and very kid-friendly. The caverns are not very big, but were just right for the four-year-old. The museum above the cave entrance is a "must-see" with... More

We have four children, 11, 7, 5 and 2. It was a great day for all! Warning, the caverns can be muddy- wear old shoes. I washed 6 pairs last night;) and the cavern stays 45-50 degrees year round. Jackets are a must! The nature trails are ok.. It's more of a path with a rope to guide you. Perfect... More

We have been to many caverns in many states and this was a first for being able to go down into the cave without a tour guide. The people that work here are wonderful and showed us how awesome the inside of the cave looks dieting a rainstorm with all the water flowing inside. The caves themselves are on the... More

The gem mining is by far my favorite, but there is so much to do and see. The gift shop is even fun to look around in. The caves are cool. There's mini golf, although I have not done it yet. They have done great improvements to the grounds recently too.

Olentangy Indian Caverns is a classic roadside attraction venue that most people in the Columbus area have heard of or seen billboard signs for but few (probably on the basis of those same signs) have ever actually visited. Its Native American history is fairly significant, assuming it's the cave mouth of the same system connected to the Wyandots and Leatherlips,... More

This was not what I was hoping for when I visited but I still found it very interesting. I was hoping for more traditional caverns with exciting geological formations. However, the history of the Native American usage of the caverns and the surrounding area made it worth the trip. I enjoyed the self-guided tour as we could spend as little... More
