THE Olentangy Indian Caverns are an interesting destination if you have not been in a cave before. there is some indian activity indicated by the owners of the cavern and I found an arrowhead less than a mile from the caverns, if you look around the -property they have various areas of interestl

Spent a wonderful hot Summer day visiting the caverns with my husband and children (12 and 15). The guide was very knowledgeable and the caverns were interesting. I would not recommend this tour to anyone with children under 5 years old or people with mobility issues as there are steep staircases and the ground is slippery.

I've been to much more impressive caverns. Thank being said it might be worth the trip if you have small children. But for two adults it was kind of lame and disappointing.

A place untouched by the current flash and buzzing of kidmania entertainment. This has a small museum, a 'state-park' style gift shop, a petting zoo with four baby deer, a beautiful nature trail, a picnic area, a play structure and place where kids can "mine" for their own gemstones (which was the highlight for every child i saw there -...

I really liked this place !! The cave is cool (literally only about 50 degrees) played some putt putt and hung out with baby deers. Life was good on that day !!! Found some weird rocks in the gift shop that I didn't know existed too. I will be back

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
