Seneca Caverns Now Open Seven Days a Week to Explore

Marisa Stephens June 09, 2021

Seneca Caverns is open for the 2021 season and will now be operating seven days a week.  You can explore the Ohio registered natural landmark everyday from 9am - 7pm, with the last tour departing at 6pm.  No reservation is needed and the facility offers a one-hour guided tour of the cave, gem mining, a clean shaded picnic area, and a gift shop. 

Seneca Caverns is located in Bellevue, OH and is one of the area’s largest underground caverns, and one of America’s most fascinating geological wonders.  It was discovered in June of 1872 by two boys while they were hunting rabbits with their dog.  Their dog chased a rabbit into a brush pile, and then both disappeared.  When both boys went searching for their dog, the cave was discovered.  In 1931, Mr. Bell (owner of the cave) discovered a series of passageways and rooms not previously known to exist, which led to an underground river, which was the water table.  Following toe and a half year’s improvement efforts, Seneca Caverns was opened to the public on May 14th, 1933. 

Retained close to its original, natural, and wild state, this subterranean tour is a truly unique and educational experience you will always remember.  Stop in today!
