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.

It was wonderful to see the natural state of our world so raw and exposed in such a professional, safe setting. What a beautiful place, I will surely make this an annual visit.

This tour was an hour but only felt like 15min. There were 5 in our group and it was pretty cool and interesting. The 12 year-old with us was bored with the tour but enjoyed the gem hunt where you buy a good size bag of dirt and sift it through the water to find the gems. The guides were... More

Thank you for visiting and for you glowing review! We opened a new entrance to the cavern in 2012. We decided early in the project that it would be very nice to have it accessible to all. The Limestone Tour is the only handicapped accessible cavern tour in Ohio. It is a much shorter tour than our other offerings, but... More

We made the hour or so drive from Columbus on a cold, but sunny March day. $17 for adults. It was a little too cold to spend much time outside today, but there is a great picnic area. Bathrooms were clean. Trip down into the caverns was great, lots of stalactites and stalagmites. The gift shop was great too. I... More

My family had a great time in the caverns. My wife, daughter (12), & son (10) made this a day trip on our spring break staycation. The natural wonders tour is about 45 minutes long. You will see cool rock formations and learn a little about this natural wonder/geology in Ohio. It's a bit pricey for what you get, but... More

Came across the Caverns driving through and decided it would be a great stop. It was a great day adventure. The tour guide was informative and obviously enjoys her job. The Caverns were beautiful. So glad I ventured up to West Liberty!

The Ohio Caverns in West Liberty, OH is a great attraction. This cave is family friendly and the tour guide is friendly and very knowledgeable about the caves. My family highly recommends a visit if you are in the area.

The tour is great. You get to learn about what makes the different colors in the cave. You also get pretty to close to some of the unique stalactite and stalagmite formations. Very interesting. Worth the drive.

Thank you for your nice review! We are fortunate to have such a varied geological representation in the cavern. We don't know who coined the phase "America's Most Colorful Cavern", but we are glad they did! We hope to see you again soon. More
