Lake of the Ozarks’ #1 Year Round Attraction
It's the time of year when many attractions and activities around the area start to close for the season. Bridal Cave is not one of those! This Lake of the Ozarks cave is open 362 days a year and is always a comfortable 60-degrees. Take a break from the chilly temps and escape to Bridal Cave for some family-friendly adventures at the Lake of the Ozarks!
Stop By for a Cave Tour:
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.
