We absolutely loved Onondaga Cave! This is our favorite cave we've been to. We were bummed at first because this was the first stop on our vacation and we knew we hoped to get to the cave before the last tour, but that didn't happen. We decided to stay longer in the morning so we could go on the first... More

Went here after going to Meramec Caverns tour and Fisher cave as well. Was a very nice tour and great price. Does have alot more ups and downs going through the tour and a long set of stairs. Seen a few in our group struggle so be prepared to climb on slick paths. Other than that also be prepared to... More

We love caves and Onondaga Cave was one of the last I had the privilege of visiting, so it holds a special place in my memory. I'm older now and I can't manage the steps often necessary in touring caves. Many caves in Missouri are closed to visitors because of a disease infesting bats, so if the cave is open,... More

This large set of caverns located in a Missouri State park is worth a stop. There are several guided tours of the caverns each day and the formations are amazing. The best thing was that it wasn't crowded midweek. The tour lasted about 2 hours and there was walking and stairs involved, but only required moderate physical exertion at times.

We spent the day at Onodaga State Park and had an excellent time hiking, picnicking, and did the cave tour. The park is very well maintained and the visitor center staff are helpful and friendly. I have toured several of Missouri's popular caves, Onodaga is by far the prettiest and geologically diverse. It has an interesting history which our tour... More

Of course, Missouri, is known for its many caves and caverns. Although Onondaga is not the most widely known, it is probably the most interesting. One can see the majestic cavern and watch the bats flying throughout the hourlong walk into the ancient spectacle of stalactites and stalagmites. One of the truly interesting places to visit on the way through... More

I've been in lots of caves and Onondaga is one of the best around. It's a very "active" cave so you see many different areas that are still growing and changing all the time. This cave offers many unique formations that are really great to see up close and personal. And since it's run by the State of Missouri, it... More

I've seen some caves in my travels, however, this one is neater than any other I've seen. It is about an hour and a half tour, recommend a jacket and definitely no flip flops. You have an option of going back after the first part of the tour or going on to the second part, DO NOT GO BACK, the... More

The cave was beautiful. We went on the last Saturday before the cave closes for the winter. We had a very small group. Our tour guide was great. Make sure you have your walking shoes on and take a jacket.
