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. Open for tours seasonally.

Good cave with many active deposits. So sad that they've lost most of their bats to WNS. Our guide was great.

The tour of the cave itself will take between 75 and 120 minutes - we found out this is highly variable based on the tour guide. But, there are also hiking trails and a walking tour of another cave in the same area, so you... More
