Another great thing to do with the kids! The cave is really neat and the stories of its past are interesting.

I went to Perry's Caves every summer for as far back as I can remember. The outside sure has changed (not quite sure how I feel about this), but the caves remain the same. And that's the way I like it. I love the names given to some of the formations. These are some of the earliest uses of my... More

While this isn't Mammoth Cave by any means, it is worth your time. The history is worth the admission price since Oliver Hazard Perry and his men spent time here during and leading up to the Battle of Lake Erie. About 20 minutes long.

I think this was a good idea that has not been executed well. I believe that more stories about the hotel whose piping is going thru this cave. Maybe a bit too expensive but I would appreciate more lights down there to talk more about the water supply and the damage of the oil lamps.

$8 gets you a 20 minute walk underground, nothing to exciting, you will get wet feet, if you have never done anything like this I suppose you will find it interesting but to us Ohio caverns are much better

This cave is of interest if you like to walk in the footsteps of historic figures O.H.Perry's men obtained drinking water from this cave. Otherwise, this cave is small, and not particulary attractive. Short walk through the cave makes it nice for a first time cave visit for children

What a great thing to do. Take the kids. unbelievable. Bit pricey but oh well. Walk carefully, it's slippery and watch your head. Low ceilings. LOL

Our guide was well versed in the historical and geologic aspects of the cave. Our group was at Put in Bay for the historic Bicentennial Reenactment of the Lake Erie Battle with Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Visiting the caves was a bonus, due to the fact Perry and his troops reportedly took refuge in the caves for a source of... More

The cave is fun to learn about and explore. There are great stories around it. the only problem was the $8 price. I'd return and take friends if the price was $4 or $5, but for 8, I'm good with just once.
