What is there to do?

If you want to explore a fascinating piece of American history, why not visit one millions of years in the making?!

Olentangy Indian Caverns were formed by a tremendous force of an underground river, that cut through solid limestone rock. How amazing is that!? But of course, this happened over millions of years, and when you visit Olentangy Indian Caverns, just have a look at how powerful nature can really be.

Today, the caverns let you explore the beautiful mazes of winding passages, and spacious underground rooms as you are taken on exciting excursions into ancient Indian lore.

There are guided and self-guided tours available, which really lets you embrace the historical AND the visual!

And the history is fascinating! They have found evidence that the Wyandotte Indians used the caverns as a haven from their enemies, and the weather. One of the large rooms even contains "Council Rock". Amazing!

Once you have finished your underground adventures, the fun doesn't have to end! If you fancy some time above ground, why not enjoy the 18 hole miniature golf course, or stroll through the lush, Native American themed garden?
