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. The Winter Tour is the only tour offered from October 1st through April 30th. It is a hybrid tour, showing guests highlights from both the Natural Wonder and Historic tours.

My family and I have been to caverns in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia and this one is now our favorite. Very scenic and lots of crystals and the COLOR! Spectacular. The reason i only gave 4 stars was because the stops on tour were kind of long. Our tour guide was John (name?) and he seemed to try to... More

Friendly staff and tour guides, great gift shop in a beautiful rural setting. Great place to visit year round - no matter what the weather is outside, it's always 54 degrees in the caverns.

Went to the caverns, it's a great experience! It worth the visit, went there on a rainy day and down there it was perfect. Very nice views of stalactites.

The gifts hop was great, good prices for simple souvenirs. The tour was 17.50 each and it wasn't so bad. The caverns are tight and try to get in the front for the line. Experiment with flash and no flash for photos because not all cameras are equal. Don't be afraid to stop and take photos, everyone else will! The... More

Friendly staff and guides, a great gift shop, three different tours are available. The caverns have a man made entrance which makes access very easy and there is a minimum of climbing, which is good for people with arthritis! The various formations which include stalagtites, stalagmites, and columns are gorgeous.

We took my 5 year old and it was a wonderful experience. I had read that the Natural Wonders tour was... More
