Fun and Beautiful Cave

Great cave with a great tour guide. Highly recommend this one. If you like caves and don't visit this one when in the area it's your loss.

Wonderful cave, not developed or over commercialized. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and seemed interested in the tour itself. Some if you like a natural looking cave with not a lot of excavation this is the one for you.

We have been to all the Ozarks caverns and this was our favorite! It's a much smaller scale business than Bridal Cave and I believe our tour guide was actually the owner but he did an amazing job talking about the history and the cave was just breathtaking!! We had a wonderful time!!

We went on a private tour. The guide was amazingly knowledgeable and we learned a ton. The kids liked it better than the more commercial caves, and they loved the bones. This lets you imagine an untouched cave without the commercial features in competition.

The cave okay, but when the guide tried to tell me the item in glass showcase was genuine Indian skeleton, I just lost it. Really? Was it even necessary to have that plaster of paris prop?! It has some nice formations. Not handicap accessible with several stairs.

Based on the reviews of this cave we had high hopes. We were very disappointed with our experience. While the cave was different from most we've toured- being more rustic with no frills and no gift shop, which was great - the cave was not much to look at. The tour was average at best and compared to the other... More

We came here on a sunday so the group was small. There are tour times so be aware of that ....which they post at entrance by parking lot. We have a 4 year old who enjoyed it but thought we'd see more wide life in the cave. Just saw little frogs. You can pay with debit with the tour guide... More

I saw a brochure at a local diner and decided we'd visit this cave during a recent overnight trip to the lake. My girlfriend and I took her 3 year old girlfriend and we loved it. It is physically an easy tour with 31 steps near the end of the tour. No fancy tourist trap, just the cave and a... More

We had a great experience visiting this cave. The guide was down to earth and very knowledgable. The cave is in a natural state and touching is really discouraged, and I think the lack of gift shop/snack bar trappings helps give visitors a greater appreciation for the undisturbed beauty of the cave. There was a waiting place for elderly or... More
