Located deep beneath the ground just 30 miles from Dayton, lies a beautiful subterranean wonderland. Ohio Caverns is a rare gem with a long rich history in the area, dating back to 1897!
Ohio Caverns is often recognized as “America’s most colorful caverns.” The caverns are the largest in the state, with over 2 miles of surveyed passageways ranging in depth from 30 feet to 103 feet. In the Summer, two different tours take guests through different parts of the caverns. During the Winter, months, only one tour is available.
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. 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. Tours take approximately one hour.
Highlights of the tour include The Crystal King, which is the largest stalactite in Ohio!
