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.

Cannot say enough great things about this amazing experience! Ended up having a personal tour when I was the only one to arrive on a Monday morning in February. John, the tour guide, was filled with knowledge and really went out of his way to answer my questions and show me unique aspects of the caverns. The winter tour has... More

Took daughter and three granddaughters there today (President's Day). Took the "Winter Tour" - only one available this time of the year. Pace was good, not too fast. I feel this is the only tour needed as it takes you on portions of all the trails. Enjoyed it. They have a very nice covered picnic area complete with picnic tables.

A very exhilarating vist into one of the world's almost supernatural wonders. It's not hard to imaging some of our nation's earliest adventurers finding and exploring the amazing world that lies beneath our feet.

This would be a great family adventure! Nice picnic area - tour guides are very knowledgable! The family/kids/grandkids loved it - they had so many questions! The cave is amazing - don't want to give away all the secrets!

What an amazing place. The tour isn't very long but it is a must see. The best part about it is the story behind its discovery and the subsequent evolution of the tourist business. The grounds are beautiful too. Everything was very well maintained. Great for the whole family but be advised there are a lot of stairs at the... More

My son (13) and I decided to take a trip to the Ohio Caverns while on our way to Cincinnati. I was so pleased with the tour, we both had a great time. Once you get there, you wait for your group to form, and they give you tickets. While you wait you have the option to shop in the... More

Went with my two younger kids and they thought it was great. Wonderful colors and lots of crystals. The tour guides were great. We visited in the winter and were disappointed that only one tour was available - we were prepared to buy the combo and see it all. I didn't see that information anywhere in the website or materials.

This is a really cool place to go to. I grew up coming here on field trips and for various events. It is the same temp inside year round, so it is a good place to go anytime.

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
