Cave Tours at the Lake of the Ozarks

Another summer may have come and gone, but that doesn't mean that the Lake of the Ozarks isn't still a great destination for families and friends of all ages! There's always something to do at the best recreational lake in the country. Touring the local caves is always a great family-friendly activity, no matter what the weather is like. Here is a quick look at some of the caves located near the Lake Area, courtesy of your friends at The Property Shop At The Lake.

Bridal Cave

Perhaps one of the most famous caves in the area, Bridal Cave owes its names to the hundreds of weddings held in its caverns every single year. This cave holds steady at a comfortable 60° year-round, which makes it a perfect destination any time of year. With guided tours that leave every few minutes, you and your family are sure to have a great time at Bridal Cave.

Ozark Caverns

For those seeking a less commercialized caving experience, Ozark Caverns is a great destination. Visitors are given lanterns to carry throughout the tour; there is no built-in lighting in the cave. Ozark Caverns is also home to Angel Showers, a uniquely spectacular underground formation. Everyone in your group will surely be in awe!

Jacob's Cave

The largest cave in the Lake Area, Jacob's Cave features a completely handicap-accessible tour that measures about a mile long (round trip). This cave features an incredible variety of different cave formations, including one of the world's largest geodes and evidence of six different ice ages and three earthquakes. You have to see it to believe it!

Fantasy World Caverns

Fantasy World Caverns has a long and rich history. Before being opened to the public for tours, the cave was used for shelter by animals and Native Americans, as a place to store goods and produce moonshine by settlers, and even a ballroom/speakeasy during prohibition. Your whole family will be able to feel the history as soon as you step inside the cave. There's nothing quite like it!
