Welcome to Central Ohio Grotto!  Love the outdoors?  Love to cave?  Would you like to try caving?  Then you’ll want to get to know us!

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”

― Joseph Campbell


Founded in 1952, The Central Ohio Grotto is a group of cavers from the Central Ohio area.   We promote fellowship among cavers and the ideals of the National Speleological Society (NSS).

Interested in becoming a member of COG?  We’re happy to have you join our fun family of cavers.  Our admission process is easy but you don’t have to be a member to attend meetings or join us on our caving trips.
