Descend into the depths of Onondaga Cave State Park and drop into a world of wonder: towering stalagmites, dripping stalactites, and active flowstones help make the cave a National Natural Landmark and illustrate why Missouri is often called “The Cave State.” Visitors can take guided tours into the underground wonderland. But if you prefer the surface, the park’s Vilander Bluff Natural Area provides a panoramic view of the Meramec River. Easy access to the Meramec River allows visitors to canoe or fish in a bucolic setting.

Onondaga Cave State Park is one of Missouri's natural wonders. Tours give plenty of understandable information about the formation of caves, the creatures that live in them and how fragile the underground ecosystem is. Worthwhile trip for older teenagers and adults. Beautiful scenery inside the...More

I did not see any bike trails, other than walking trails. The roads into the park are hilly and narrow with no shoulders, so not ideal for biking. Trail bikes might have some success, but it could be rough going for touring... More

I've never floated while staying there but Ozark Outdoors is right across the river from the campground and offered rentals. Their campground is nice and everything looks clean so you might give them a try.
