We are avid campers and choose a theme each year to determine where to go in the area. This year we chose cave tours, which landed us at Lake of the Ozarks in June 2018. At this point in the year, we've already been on...More

A $10 tour ticket, and your own personal battery operated lantern to carry, will get you a guided tour of yet another Missouri cave owned by the state, and situated on Missouri parks land. A cool, constant year-round 56 degrees. An easy half mile walk...More

We enjoyed our trip through the caverns. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthused about the caves. There is no lighting inside except the lanterns you carry, and the floors are mostly flat or paved. It's about a quarter mile in before you turn around;...More

Friendly staff, tour guide. 45-60min tour. Mainly flat walking surface of concrete throughout the cave. Provided lanterns for the tour. Nice visit, but probably wouldn't make a special trip to it unless you're in the area.

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...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....More

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...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...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....More
