Formations Throughout Bridal Cave:
Giant columns, delicate soda straws, and massive draperies abound throughout the cave.

Formations found throughout the cave tour make for unique breathtaking views around every corner!
Our guided tours leave every few minutes throughout the summer months. The cave is a comfortable 60-degrees which is a nice treat this time of year! The tour is led over a concrete path which makes navigating the cave easy for all ages. We do recommend that you wear comfortable, closed-toed shoes as the cave floors can be wet from time to time. Tour guides take your group from room to room throughout the gorgeous cave. In each room, interesting facts about the formations, the specific room, explorers, and the Lake of the Ozarks area are shared. This is a fantastic way to learn more about the area and caves, in general.
