Ohio's largest and most beautiful cavern. Tours take guests through two different parts of the cavern. The Historic Tour begins at the site of discovery and includes the part that was originally explored from 1897 to 1925. The Natural Wonder Tour takes guests on a 1 mile walk through parts discovered after 1925. It includes the largest stalactite in Ohio, The Crystal King, along with many other marvelous formations and colors. Only one tour is offered from November through March. It is a hybrid tour, showing guests highlights from both the Natural Wonder and Historic tours.

An impromptu trip to the caverns did not disappoint, this place is amazing. My husband, children (11 & 4) and I enjoyed the combination tour very much. Great piece of Ohio history and a cool break from the 93 degrees weather up above. Absolutely amazing!!

My boyfriend and I went and got into the tours right away. We did both tours. We learned a lot about the history of the caves plus the sites were amazing. It was a very hot day so the 54 degrees inside felt nice. Wear tennis shoes or boots because it is slippery and wet. Paths were easy to walk... More

We stopped at the Ohio Caverns on our way home from Kings Island as a little bonus, to break up our drive home from vacation. It was well worth it and would recommend highly. Our children LOVED it...ages 6, 7, and 9. We took the hour long "natural wonders" tour...actually about 50 minutes. It was definitely a little on the... More

We thought it was a great experience and would recommend it to anyone who can walk good. Everyone we encountered was nice, helpful and knowledgeable.

Bring a jacket.... It's a constant 54 degrees throughout the tours of the caverns. The staff is very informative about the caverns and all the history. Lots of interesting things to see and learn. It's in the middle of beautifully scenic rural Ohio....worth the drive to get there.

We did both the historic tour and the natural tour. There is definitely some crossover in information so if you do them both you will hear duplicate info. If you have a lot of time they are both worth it. If you only have time for one definitely do the natural tour! Very good tour and great time for a... More

Facilities: Sluice, avg gift shop, picnic area; Historic tour requires a bus ride to the entrance (dry, fewer formations). Natural Wonder tour is popular with more formations. Bring your own food as only snacks are available. This is a good family stop.

Worth the drive. At first I thought we were lost because it is in the middle of nowhere, but low and behold the signs directed us. The tour is just the right length of time, and Phillip our tour guide was knowledgeable. Not for claustrophobics or out of shape people.

The tour was great! The cave temperature was a little cool, but not bad. The natural structures were beautiful. The entrance fee is a little high, but an unforgettable view inside.
