Our Boycott Troop just got back from the overnight cave trip. The boys had a blast going on the Wild Tour. The wild tour consisted of crawling through tight passages that open up into huge rooms, some with waterfalls. It was a little muddy but not bad at all. Blue Spring Provide helmets and you provide the head lamp. Most... More

We were fortunate to go during the week and had the whole tour to ourselves. It was pretty cool to have all of our questions answered and my toddler loved looking for the underwater critter (there were maybe 10 total- crayfish and blind fish). The staff was super young, super friendly, and made this tour worthwhile. Not sure I need... More

Website does not say they are closed. Drove here and they are closed tool March 16, 2017. Call before you go. Very disappointing.

This trip was offered to our local Boy Scout Troop in Central Ohio so we were some of the first to sign up for the experience to camp underground! Our drive was around 4 hours but well worth it in my opinion! We arrived to the area early (before the caverns opened for the overnight adventure) so we stopped by... More

Well worth a stop and a few hours to see this unique cave. The staff is friendly, informative, and who ever heard of an underground river featuring blind fish and crayfish?

Well enjoyed the caverns. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Only downside was the terrified screaming child, which made it impossible to hear what the guide said for a good part of the tour. Wish parents would read the brochure about not bringing small children. Poor child, we felt terrible for her.

Absolutely a must-see for visitors of any age! Enjoyed the one-hour trip down the nation's longest navigable underground waterway. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and very helpful. Really surprised this isn't more well-known!

We visited this cavern two times before and both times it was closed because of flooding. Apparently after heavy rains it can flood so bad that the boats rise to the ceiling. This time, on September 16th we were finally able to take the tour. Before the actual tour which runs once an hour, at least when we went, we... More

Our family (2 adults/2 kids) visited Bluespring Caverns. We had a nice time on this informative boat tour. It was a nice break along our cave tours weekend (nice to sit for a while and get off our feet). Our tour guide, Dylan?, was great. We could tell he was sick with a cold (and wasn't feeling well) but he... More

We loved that these caves were different than most we have been in since you can see them only by boat. Even my teenagers enjoyed it.
