The O'Bannon Woods State Park lies in the central and extreme southern part of the state, bordering the Ohio River. The forest contains approximately 26,000 acres to hike and fish including the Wyandotte Caves State Recreation Area.
The tours are offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Jackets are recommended for all cave tours since cave temperature is always 52 degrees F.
