Laura Moore

Loved it

Daniel Druck

Very educational

Cathy Bender

Just happened to find this place. Nice tour. Although we could have used a little less of the hidden animals and fruit and more of the geology aspect of the cavern.

Thomas Geery

We didn't visit the caverns themselves but ate at the restaurant while discovering roads and scenery in the area. Decent food and attentive service.

Wayne Walk Jr

Nice tour! Great staff and tour guides.

Shawnee Roberts

A must see adventure. The guided tour was exciting, and comical at times with the hi Mor injected by the guides.

Janette Camara

Fun place to tour. Tour guide was quite entertaining. Reasonably priced. I would definitely visit here again.

J Rice

Gorgeous!

Grant Broadhurst

Nice, simple caverns. Worth it, although I must say I preferred Shenandoah Caverns and Luray Caverns.

Meleke Rucker

Beautiful place and ask for Sarah as a guide shes awesome and made it enjoyable.

Cheryl Cruey

Fairly easy tour with lots of history

Jolyn Stanley

Our tour guide, Jay, was wonderful. Good speaker, respectful and made sure we had a ride to top at the end without embarrassing anyone.

Jared Smith

Very neat place to visit with beautiful surroundings and very friendly owners.

Shawn Mayo

The kids loved the haunted cave!

Anna and Pug

Loved the caverns, though we couldve done without the quips about the formations. The guide didn't seem enthused about saying the quips so I assume she was made to say them. Give more scientific information about the caverns please

Nicole Reid

Stopped here to escape the rain and was well worth it. There's a restaurant with a beautiful view and good good (wifi also). Great gift shop with cute jewelry and clothes and stuff for children. I enjoyed the tour, we caught the last one of the day and I'm pretty sure the guide was ready to go home because it felt extremely rushed and would turn the lights off before people were even done in some of the "rooms". However, if you havent done a cave tour this I'd a fun one and appropriate for kids of all ages. They create fun stories about the different rooms which was cute. It's cold, so bring a jacket for sure. If standing or walking is a task for you you may want to think twice as you're going down slick stairs and wet walkways with limited light and some areas you have to bend over to walk through as the tunnels are very low in height.

Tania Gaughan

Fun place for kids... and adults. Tour guide we had was very knowledgeable and fun. The restaurant served food that was fresh and tasty... well worth a visit!

Alisha White

Loved the caverns, our guide was amazing! Would recommend to anyone of any age!!

michael demars

Very nice cave tour.

Jen Badgley

You travel a mile through the caves and 165ft underground. It was a cool experience. Make sure to go to Seneca Rock while you are in the area.

Ally Greene

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

John Trumble

A great experience for the family. The restaurant had good food as well.

Peter Schulleri

Kaytlan was a terrific guide; really interesting, the cavern's features are far more interesting than their own advertisements express; a change of pace. there's a restaurant on the property. it serves great food in a very comfortable environment. see if you can find road 9 north (the road that forks north, just outside the gates of Seneca Caverns). it's a classic WV backroad that intersects US-33 just south of Seneca Rocks.

Katelynn was our guide, she was fantastic. We had a 5&6 year old with us. Not on time did they want to end the tour. Even during the total black out...we had the best time. Then lunch was good, our server was so patient with the kids. It was a blast had by all.

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.

Walita Smallcanyon

Awesome! My grandchildren enjoyed the tour!

Marie Ridenour

West Virginia is my hometown I have been there alot..And had a family reunion at Backwater Falls...You need to take your next vacation in West VIrginia.

Michelle Teter

If you ever have a chance to tour Seneca Caverns, do it and ask for Jay as your tour guide! He is very knowledgeable about the history of the cave and makes the tour even more interesting. Great food at the restaurant and a cute little gift shop with gem mining right outside.

Cnidarian Lasagna

Sara was a great tour guide. We got to see a lot of cool stuff in the caves. Be sure to wear long sleeves. It's constantly 52° down there. Afterwards, go to the Asbury family restaurant for a burger and some cobbler. Very good service, clean facilities (I recommend using the bathrooms in the restaurant rather than the white building the gift shop tells you about), kind servers, gorgeous view of the mountains!

Gamer Arii

The caves are so beautiful, the tour is even better, they make sure to ask questions if you are wondering. They have so much to do, including Gem Mining, A Cave Tour, A Cafe, and a Gift shop! I highly recommend to go there as a group of friends or family.

Lori Johnson

Very Nice Caverns, Friendly Staff, quaint Little Gift Shop, We even ate at their Restaurant and My Steak Sub was Very Fresh ;) Good Stuff...Worth the trip!

Jody Mccartney

Awesome

Linda Watson

Awesome! Very knowledgable guide- great experience! Wear appropriate footwear- a little wet and muddy in spots.

Rosebud S

Awesome trip with my family for my birthday. Awesome caves to see.

Carrie Metzler

Enjoyed the guided tour. The staff were very accommodating. We enjoyed the walk through the caverns. Nothing you wouldn't see in any other cavern tour. Nice picnic area and restaurant. Bathrooms were clean.

Zachary Gerkin

was awesome definitely cool stuff cheap prices and nice gift shop it was awesome

Marenda Thomas

Cavern was nice. Tour guide wasnt very good. Talked too fast and tried to be funny which he was not.

Karen Fullerton

So enjoyed it I plan to visit every year

TruthSeeker

Very enjoyable and informative tour. West Virginia could do more to sell this tourist spot. Luray caverns just across the state lines in Virginia is much more commercialized and gets huge crowds

Mark Gyenes

Such a friendly accommodating staff. Excellent guided tour with very small groups. Josh our guide was very friendly fun and knowledgeable. Restaurant was very nice also. Comfortable and very tasty meals. My extra scrutinizing 18 y/o son swears it was the best cheeseburger that he had ever eaten and he knows his burgers. Make sure you call before you travel as they are not typically open Monday and Tuesday which is quite common in the area and the Canaan Valley/Blackwater Falls private specialty stores and restaurants.

Shreyansh Gaur

We happened to come across these caverns by chance as it was raining and we couldn't hike up Seneca rocks. The caverns are beautiful, the cavern guides make the entire trip really fun with their fun facts and quips. The $15.00 price per head is quite reasonable for the experience.

Brian Rhoades

Very interesting

Chris Clark

Very impressive cave. Tour guides are knowledgeable. Restaurant is good and reasonably priced.

Cnidarian Lasagna

Michael Armstrong

Awesome thanks

Amber Elkins

Awesome cavern tour, worth the trip.

Jezebel Winter

I loved it! They were actually really accommodating and the guide (I don't remember his name, young blonde kid) was really good, helpful and informative. It seemed like the tour didn't last long, and although it's something that now that I've done it I don't feel a need to do it again, I'm definitely glad I went.

Paul Schwindler

Very nice simple facility. Great staff and reasonable price. Not a difficult walk to visit the cave.

RUTH SCHMIEDLE

One of the best Caverns I been in

Brandon Hayes

Amazing experience. The tour guide was very well knowledge about the caves and the history of it. Absolutely beautiful

klatoo14

Cavern tour is about 45-60 minutes and well done. I'm giving 4 stars because our tour guide was very novice and kept deferring to another guide. Over all very well lit and fun little tour. Some tight places and if you are over 6 ft like I am you might hit your head a few times. The additional tour guide was very knowledgeable and I stayed near him for the vast majority and got a little more insight into the cave and history of it.

Cyle Sines

Nice tour, lots of cave formations. Our guide was very friendly and informative.

Jim Henry

Excellent cave. Very unique. Really enjoyed the tour.

Brett Whitley

Interesting and adventurous.

Varun Vasudevan

Classic evidence of natures magic. Tour was pretty cool and helpful..especially with regards to how the formations were created.

James Boykin

Took short tour which was informative and interesting

jay russell

Not as pretty as it was 15 years ago but still a nice place to visit.

Jim

Wonderful place to explore

Tom De Seve

Great tour. Nice restaurant for lunch after tour.

Rob Clutter

Haunted Caverns was a great starting point for my 10 year old daughter. It was still a little scary but she could handle it. It was a good time for the whole family.

Bogdanna K

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.

Shawn Pertunen

It was raining so we went subterranean. The caves were interesting with some unusual formations. What didn't work was the young tour guides constant references to movies. I want scientific information on the caves, not a review of "Shrek". Overall inexpensive and interesting but get a different guide.

bill lemaster

Gift shop and panning for gems with grandkuds

john Smith

If you have not been there I would recommend it amazing great tour guides they make you laugh tons of fun in that area

jimbo r

Very beautiful place to see.

Mikaela Dunegan

This was the first time I had explored caverns, and for my boyfriend his first visit to this particular spot. We both had a blast and had a wonderful tour guide, I believe his name was Dawson. The prices in the gift shop weren't bad as well. We didn't stop to eat in their restaurant, as we were on our way home to PA. The scenery was beautiful. We would consider going back someday.

Sarah Gower

An enjoyable experience. The caverns are cool and the staff was great. My only criticism would be that the lighting didn't do anything to enhance the caves. My oldest is an aspiring geologist so we've been to various cave systems that have managed to use lights to highlight the features and not over illuminate the caverns, so we were expecting a little better in this way. Overall it was a great tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. It's worth seeing if you're in the area.

Parker Prouty

The caves where buetiful and our tour guide was amazing

Maria Davis

Great place to see and tour guide was very informative.

Sierra Taylor

The tour guide Sydney done an exceptional job. She was very thorough and kept it interesting.

Joell Driver

Did the gem minning lots of gems but they were so big they had to be planted. Did go in caverns.

Makinzy Hartley

Amazing and buitfl pretty

Daniel Zorawicki

Great staff. The cavern was unbelievably unreal.

Giant Catbass

Seneca Caverns is a karst show cave in Germany Valley near Riverton, West Virginia, USA. It was used for ceremonies of Seneca Indians, an Iroquois confederacy tribe and has been commercially used since 1930. The largest room inside the cave is the Teter Hall, which is 60 feet tall by 60 feet wide in some areas.

Susan Elvin

Great guide. Wonderful restaurant with plenty to choose from

Penny Littell

This was a fun and educational trip! The trip leader was so knowledgeable and took the time to show us things I have never seen before or learned before. This was a great experience and I am thankful we decided to stop and tour it.

Travis Rafail

Went for the Halloween haunted tour.. absolutely awesome twist to a haunted attraction definitely reccomend.

Julianne Lilholt

Very fun tour. The cave was huge (didn't make me feel claustrophobic at all) and had so many interesting formations that the tour guide had funny stories about them all.

Jason Blaha

Good Halloween scares great job. A dark cave is spooky enough

J.W. Petterson

Tour was fun and very informative.

Fj Polievka

Very cool roadside attraction! Gem mining for the kids and adults as well as s great tour of the caverns. Adults are $15.00 for the approx. 1 hour tour that goes for over a mile underground. Hard hats provided and you can take pictures and video during the tour. There is a restaurant onsite that has great food with great prices! Plan to spend a couple hours if you time it for lunch or dinner. Also the restaurant had a wrap around porch with nice chairs and table over looking the mountains.

Barbara Donaldson

Very nice place

Steve Cook

Best food around. Great price. I have had multiple specials, and the burgers at the resteraunt are great. The tours are fun and kids like the gem mining.

Jeff Wengerd

Very good tour and some more awesome caverns

Jessica Quinn

Nice family run operation. Simple tour, great on a rainy day.

Justin Rogosky

Nice walk through cave. Great tour guides.

Ruth Grapes

Great food and svc And a great price.only suggestion I had is it would be nice to have a Senior minu. They do have to go boxes yet I find it's never as good when you rewarm it and some things can't be rewarded All in all great .worth while the grip

Danita Rhodes

Loved it alot of walking it took 45 mins to go thru the Caverns. Not for older people sign said 250 steps and their not kidding. Guide was very nice. Had a great time.

Jon Day

Wonderful!! tour guide did fantastic job! Pics turned out great! Well worth the stop

Misty Sky

I had a genuinely good time here. Our tour guide, Jay, was knowledgable of the cave and made it very entertaining on top of that. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the gift shop was cute and affordable.

Tyler Summerfed

Cool scenery of the stalagmites and lagmites.

Praswin Prakash

Good caverns but smaller than Luray. This can be combined with a trip to Blackwater falls and Spruce Knob. The tour guide was a young guy who was pretty good at his job. He kept everyone engaged. The price is reasonable too. Would recommend this place if you are in the area.

christopher everson

Interesting history, your guide was friendly and nice

Alisha Rosier

Beautiful. Great Hospitality.

Jessie Cooper

This was my favorite thing I did while visiting Seneca, WV

Chris Boone

Cool little Halloween tour. Wish it were longer though

Dorothy Sladek

Had a great time there with family. Lots of cool things to see

Cory Bernazzoli

My wife and I have never done a cavern tour before but this was an excellent first time experience. It's a beautiful drive out to the area, they have a nice restaurant right up the hill from the gift shop and cavern entrance. I recommend NOT taking a jacket into the Caverns as it really doesn't get that cold down there. Once you are down there, it's fantastic and beautiful and quite the experience. Tour guide makes it fun and is very knowledgeable. It's educational and fascinating, you have to check out Seneca Caverns, also great for families.

Carlos Valencia

Amazing place to explore.

Sarah Cofer

Seneca Caverns, WV had a nice peaceful tour, and lots of American Indian history. The formations inside were large and beautiful. This cave is definitely what my husband and I were looking for as we traveled around West Virginia for a long weekend doing cave tours. I highly recommend this cave and tour! :)
