Outstanding Nature Experience

We really enjoyed the 1-mile trail through the woods next to Ozark Caverns. The hike was free. A tour of the cave cost us $30 for 2 adults and a teen. Very cool cave--literally... read more

We arrived with six adults and four children. The ranger informed us that the next tour was about an hour away. She suggested we take the one Mike trail, which we did. When we arrived back all of us had what they called tick larvae all over us. The adults mostly on the shoes and ankle areas but the poor... More

We really enjoyed the 1-mile trail through the woods next to Ozark Caverns. The hike was free. A tour of the cave cost us $30 for 2 adults and a teen. Very cool cave--literally and figuratively. It was about an hour's tour. We went for the hike but also enjoyed spelunking on a whim. I thought the land in this... More

This is not your run of the mill cave. It starts with interacting with not so friendly people at the desk. There you are told no cameras or anything that is not your clothes or shoes can go in to protect the cave and creators. We understand the need so we took everything back to the car. Then we went...

We've visited several caverns, and though this cavern was smaller than many we've seen, it offered some unique attributes. For one, everyone gets to carry a lantern since there is no light installed in the cave. I loved that element of the tour, especially when we turned the lanterns off to see just how dark the cave was. The kids... More

This is a smaller cave system but was a very fun trip for our family of about 10 visitors. This tour is entirely on foot to the back of the tour area with great information about the bats and missouris cave systems , including getting to see many frogs which are also cave dwellers. Angel showers is very neat with... More

We have been to many many caves on our vacations, but we have never seen a formation like the Angel Showers in Ozark Cavern. Water falls from the ceiling in a sort of shower-head way, and it lands on a depression that resembles a bathtub. Words can't describe how cool it was. The cave is in a very natural state,... More

If your idea of something unusal and different to do includes visiting a cave, you should definitely include Ozark Caverns on your list. The reception and interpretive display area is attractive, well thought out, and very informative. Rest rooms are immaculate. Cave tours are given by highly trained visitor guides who are themselves avid cave hobbyists. They genuinely enjoy getting... More
