Guided tours leave every few minutes and last approximately one hour. Tours are conducted over concrete pathways through the Cave’s refreshing 60 degree environment. Park interpreters will lead you and your family through room after room of incredible mineral deposits. Giant columns, delicate soda straws and massive draperies abound throughout the cave. Millions of years of struggle between water and rock have created this cavern with more onyx formations than any other known cave or cavern. In fact thousands of school children each year explore Bridal Cave as part of their educational program. A tour through Bridal Cave is a family adventure you will never forget.
Jacob’s Cave was the first commercialized cave in the Lake of the Ozarks area—it opened for tourists in 1932. The cave is famous for its depth illusions, reflective pools, ceiling sponge-work, prehistoric bones (mastodon, bear and peccary) and what is believed to be the world’s largest geode.
Jacob’s Cave is located between Versailles and Gravois Milles, off of Route 5 on Route TT. The largest cave in the Lake Area, it is completely accessible to persons with disabilities. Baby strollers and wheel chairs are available for those who need them.
The entire cave tour is paved and lit. It stays a mild 57 degrees year-round, and is 90 percent handicapped accessible. It is a good-size cave, with many spectacular natural formations including soda straws, flow stone, stalactites, stalagmites, helictites (bent soda straws), and big beautiful columns. The cave’s predominate fossil is stromatolite -fossilized blue green sea algae that was alive during the time Missouri was submerged. Stromatolites cover a significant portion of the ceilings within Stark Caverns. Geologic records indicate that the Stark Caverns stromatolite quality and quantity are among the largest in North America.
