Feature Friday: Seneca Caverns

Feature Friday: Seneca Caverns
May 25, 2023

Happy Feature Friday, where every Friday the Chamber team will highlight one of our fantastic members by repping them for the day and telling the community more about them. This week's Feature Friday is: Seneca Caverns!

Experience at Seneca Caverns – Ohio’s Greatest Natural Underground Adventure  Beginning Memorial Day Weekend (this weekend!) through Labor Day they are open seven days a week from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm with the last cave tour departing at 6:00 pm. Seneca Caverns is located at 15248 East Township Road 178 right outside of Bellevue, Ohio.

Get a peek at what is under the ground that we walk on every day. Walk the natural stone steps and pathways that will lead you through seven rooms or levels. Feel the temperature cool as you progress into the cavern. The largest room is 250 feet in length. At the lowest level, 110 feet below the surface, see Ole’ Mist’ry River; the crystal-clear flowing stream which is part of the vast groundwater system underlying the surrounding region. You will be amazed as you enjoy this very unique tour!

Seneca Caverns has been retained close to its original, natural, wild state, this subterranean tour is truly a unique and educational experience you will always remember. After the tour, try your hand at mining just like they did in frontier days at the Seneca Mining Company. This “gem” is a fully operational sluice with flowing water. Here you can pan for gemstones, minerals, crystals, arrowheads, and fossils. In addition to mining you can also explore the fully stocked gift shop complete with the perfect Seneca Caverns apparel, magnets, decor, and more, awesome gifts for someone or for yourself, fun items for kids, books and educational items, and much more! You can also bring a lunch or take a rest on the well kept and peaceful picnic tables and outdoor gathering area. 

Seneca Caverns may be the only cave of its kind open for public visitation. Seneca Caverns is a Registered Natural Landmark by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Seneca Caverns is open from May through October during the year, rain or shine. Visit www.SenecaCavernsOhio.com to plan your underground adventure. We love having Seneca Caverns as a member of the Chamber and are so grateful to have this hidden gem in Seneca County and for the role it plays in bringing people from all over to our community!
