My son and I enjoyed the cave. Afterwards, we thought the petting zoo would be fun, but the employees working today thought it was more important to chat together at the counter than to answers my questions about it. Sorry to interrupt, I’ll just go...More

The shop was very clean and they had a lot of things for the kids. The putt putt course was very dated but the maze looked fun. We didn't do the gem mining but the cavern was fantastic. The cavern is small but we explored...More

This ancient cavern occupied by Native Americans is nearly 100 feet down and cool year-round. I enjoyed the walk through the cavern and seeing the stalactites and stalagmites. The tour guide was well-informed about the history of the cavern. Not for the claustrophobic or those...More

Great place for a relatively short and easy tour for the whole family. Took us about an hour. So glad we made a point to include this in our visit to Ohio!

We took our grandkids there and we all enjoyed the place very much! It was a little pricey, $9.95 for my hubby and me and $6.95 for each of the kids to tour the cavern and a tiny 1 room 'museum' with Indian history (Tecumseh...More

Be careful inside the caverns as the paths are narrow and extremely slippery. This is not an activity for those with walking problems.

Visited here with family including a couple granddaughters. The caverns are a real basic historic sight but an interesting glimpse of the past. Pretty pricey for what it involves plus additional price for everything else to see or do but that's probably why it's a...More
