perry's caveCampers can explore the wonders hidden beneath the earth at two nearby attractions – Perry’s Cave and Crystal Cave. Less than an hour’s drive from Camp Lake Erie RV Parks and Campgrounds, these are two of the many delights that await visitors at Put-In-Bay Island.

Perry’s Cave is an Ohio National Landmark discovered in 1813 during the Battle of Lake Erie. Its stalagmites, stalactites and cave pearls were formed by deposits from centuries of water dripping from the ceiling. The average tour takes 20 minutes and visitors are advised to wear a light jacket and comfortable rubber-soled shoes.

The other cavern is Crystal Cave, known as the largest cave in the world lined with mineral matter. The walls are covered in strontium sulfate, a blue-toned mineral that has formed crystals ranging from 8 to 18 inches long. Tours are offered from early May to late September and the cost of admission is $7 for adults.

For those who have never entered into the realm of the underground, these attractions are well worth seeing because they offer interesting views of rock and mineral formations. Visit our website and book your spot today.
