Missouri Caves

  Missouri - The Cave State

Missouri is truly the cave state, with over 5,380 registered and mapped wild caves.  Three Hundred (300) of the wild caves are in the counties of Camden, Miller, and Morgan which surround the Lake of the Ozarks.  They are for the whole family, from small children to grandparents.  One of the best things about visiting a cave is that no matter what the weather or season, the temperature is approximately 50-60 degrees year-round.  The lake area is blessed with four Show Caves and is the only tourist destination in the United States with four Show Caves located within 30 miles of each other.

 
     
  Bridal Cave, just north of Camdenton, off Highway 5 on Lake Road 5-88, can also be reached by water on the 10 1/2 mile marker on the Big Niangua Arm of the Lake.  This is just across the lake channel from Bull Run Bluff Campground.  Bridal Cave is the oldest cave in the Lake area.  It was formed 42-46 million years ago.  Bridal Cave has hosted over 1,325 weddings in the stalactite adorned Bridal Chapel.  
     
  Jacob's Cave, off of TT highway, north of Gravois Mills, is the largest cave in the Lake area and is the only walk through cave in Missouri that is completely accessible to persons with disabilities.  Jacob's Cave is famous for it's depth illusion, reflective pools, ceiling sponge-work, prehistoric bones, and the world's largest Geode.  Evidence of six ice ages and three earthquakes can be seen.  
     
  Fantasy World Caverns is located in a beautiful valley setting off of Highway 54 between Bagnell Dam and Eldon.  Fantasy World Caverns has three levels with a large lake in the entrance, large domed ceilings draped with iron stained formations, two natural waterfalls, and canyon passages.  
     
  Ozark Caverns is a State owned cave.  The cave stream exits the mouth of the cave and forms a fin in front of the cave (fresh water swamp);  too shallow for fish, but just right for a vast array of exotic plant and animal life native to this area.  Ozark Caverns is famous for its "Angels Shower".  Tours are conducted through the cave with electric lanterns.
