  • I was disappointed in Seneca Caverns. The cavern tour is actually ho-hum if you've visited Caverns before. If not, you might find them more interesting. Our guide talked rapidly, and slurred his words...  more »

  • Great tour. Our tour guide was hilarious and educational. Our whole family had fun and learned, even the few of us who had been in Caverns before. Cute gift shop with some good priced items, and a nice restaurant right there
  • A great experience for the family. The restaurant had good food as well.
  • Great tour and easy to find. It is $14 for people 13 and above. $8 for kids 5 to 12. 4 and under free.
  • Such a interesting cave. Accomodated our large group of 15 very well. Very friendly guides and even stayed a bit late to make sure we got to see everything.
  • I visited on the first day of Fall 2015. About a 20 minute drive from Seneca Rocks, Seneca Caverns offers a nice detour from the waterfalls and scenic mountains and valleys that cover this entire part of the state of WV. There's a decent amount of parking at the gift shop and restaurant, which is just next door. Tours, in the slower season, run at the top of the hour and take about forty-five minutes to an hour. Be sure to call ahead - from somewhere, while you still have cell phone reception - to verify that day's schedule. I missed the tour by fifteen minutes, and waited forty-five minutes for the next one. The quaint gift shop and ample restaurant will help you pass the time. Speaking of losing cell phone reception, print out any road maps, trail maps, and directions you need before leaving home. As for the tour itself: our guide was knowledge and friendly, and made corny jokes along the way during the tour to lighten the mood. The caverns are not 'touristy' with all sorts of colored lighting everywhere. There are approx. 250+ steps in the cavern, as well as a 1/4-mile (mostly uphill) hike back to the gift shop from the cavern exit. The interior of the cavern has numerous low ceilings, so wearing a hard-hat is required. Photography (including flash) is permitted. Take a light jacket or coat, depending on your sensitivity to 100% humidity and cooler temperatures.
