Show Caves to Visit in Missouri - Part 2

Our Lake of the Ozarks family-fun attraction isn't the only cave tour to enjoy in Missouri. Last week our blog, Show Caves to Visit in Missouri - Part 1, featured eight exciting caves full of natural wonders in addition to Bridal Cave. This week's blog continues that look with seven more show caves that help to give our state it's nickname of "The Cave State."  


Round Spring Cave (photo from www.visitmo.com) 
Round Spring Cave
This cave is a part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, one of our national parks located in Van Buren. During the summer months, park rangers take up to 15 people at a time on this 2-hour, somewhat strenuous cave tour.

Current River Cavern
Also in Van Buren, you will find the cave formerly known as "Big Spring Onyx Cavern." There is a year-round stream flowing through the tour passage below the boardwalk, and after heavy rains there is a beautiful small waterfall to enjoy flowing from a side passage. The entire cave is lit by battery powered LED lights that give off a restricted light spectrum. There are flashlights available in the gift shop to borrow and use during this 30-40 minute cave tour.

Fantastic Caverns
Springfield boasts America's only ride-through cave. Visitors take the tour in jeep-drawn trams. This helps to preserve the natural features of the cave while allowing you to experience the magnitude, the stillness, and the splendor. Each tour lasts about an hour, and they depart every 20-30 minutes all year long.  



Smallin Cave (photo from www.smallincave.com) 
Smallin Cave
Just south of Springfield in Ozark, you will find Smallin Cave. There is strong evidence that this particular cave was used for war related activities during the Civil War, and they even offer a historic Civil War Tour which includes a lantern -lit walk through the cave. The regular 1-hour, half-mile cave tour is given year-round. Guides will tell you all about the history, folklore, and geology of Smallin Cave, and you may be lucky enough to see rare bristly crayfish, endangered blind cave salamanders, and various species of bats.     



Marvel Cave (photo from www.visitmo.com)
Marvel Cave
Silver Dollar City in Branson features Marvel Cave. The theme park actually evolved around the entrance to this show cave which can be toured seasonally March 15 - January 1. The trail in this hour long, wet limestone cave tour consists of ramps and nearly 600 stairs. A trained guide will host your journey with anecdotes of historical and geological features. After descending nearly 500 feet below the earth's surface, a unique cable train will bring you back up.   



Talking Rocks Cavern (photo from www.talkingrockscavern.com)
Talking Rocks Cavern
You will find this incredible cave in Branson West. It was first named "Fairy Cave" by early cave developer Truman Powell because he commented that it looked like "a subterranean fairy land." In 1969 the name was changed to Talking Rocks Cavern based on a quote from Truman's son, Waldo Powell, who noted that the physical evidence inside the cave would tell him a story about how it was formed. The hour long tour is both fun and educational (what they call "edutainment.") You will see and learn all about the cave's discovery, history, mineral deposits, and other geological information. 


Bluff Dwellers Cavern (photo from www.facebook.com/bluffdwellerscave)
Bluff Dwellers Cavern
This show cave in Noel was discovered in 1925, and it began from an opening only as large as a person's head. A network of subterranean corridors were found channeling through the layers of rock like a subway system. Public tours began just two years after the cave's discovery, and today descendants of the original Browning family that discovered the cave still own it. You can experience this show cave year-round, witnessing its Crystal Dam, Musical Chimes, Balanced Rock, and much more.



If you have had the chance to visit our scenic Lake of the Ozarks attraction, then you have some idea about the wonders that are in store for you when you visit the rest of Missouri's show caves. While similar, each of these has something unique to see and learn about. Bridal Cave is a great place to start your adventure, but we hope that the information in this blog series inspires you to keep exploring all of the wonders of our magical cave state. This type of outdoor activity is family fun... the way it should be!

Show Caves to Visit in Missouri - Part 1

Bridal Cave can be found in the middle of Missouri, aka "The Cave State." We've talked about the "Show-Me-State's" other nickname before, and discussed the reasons that Missouri earned it. (There are 18 show caves located in our state, and 6,950 wild caves!) 

Today, our Lake of the Ozarks cave tour has decided to share the spotlight with some of the other show caves in Missouri. Cave exploring is an excellent winter activity due to the fact that you can experience nature and the great outdoors, but in a sheltered and climate-controlled way. If you couldn't decide on a good New Year's resolution for 2017, why not make yours trying to visit every show cave in this blog series? January is a great time to get started! 


Bridal Cave, Thunder Mountain Park, Missouri show caves
Bridal Cave
Bridal Cave
We figured that a good place to start would be our very own Lake of the Ozarks family attraction. Located in Camdenton, we have been rated as one of the most scenic cave tours in America! Tours leave every few minutes all year long. Our guides are thoroughly educated about the cave's real history and tall tales, and you will hear all about it as you travel from room to room enjoying the natural beauty.

True to its name, Bridal Cave is also a very popular and unique place to get married. Since the very first wedding in the underground chapel in 1949, over 3,300 couples have tied the knot here! In addition to that, couples flock to the free annual vow renewals hosted by the cave every year around Valentine's Day.


Ozark Caverns (photo form www.mostateparks.com)
Ozark Caverns
Inside Lake of the Ozarks State Park in Kaiser, not too far from Bridal Cave, is this beautiful show cave. It contains an environment where geologic processes can proceed unhindered by many of the erratic, erosive forces that shape the surface landscape. In addition to viewing soda straws, helictites, stalagmites, and a host of other geologic wonders, Ozark Caverns contains Angel Showers. This is an unusual cave phenomenon which is a never-ending shower of water coming out of what seems to be a solid ceiling of rock. The interpretive tour is a half-mile round trip and lasts about an hour.    


Jacob's Cave (photo from www.jacobscave.com)
Jacob's Cave
This natural wonder can be found between Versailles and Gravois Mills. It is famous for its depth illusions, reflective pools, ceiling sponge-work, prehistoric bones, and the world's largest geode. During the mile-long tour, you will be able to witness evidence of six ice ages and three earthquakes. Jacob's Cave is completely handicap accessible to wheelchairs and baby strollers.   


Meramec Caverns (photo from www.americascave.com) 
Meramec Caverns
Traveling east of the Lake of the Ozarks, you will find Meramec Caverns in Stanton. It is filled with complex mineral formations and colors as rare and unique as they are beautiful that took thousands of years to grow. Rangers lead guided tours year-round along well-lighted walkways. You will learn how the ancient limestone "Wine Table" was built, as well as an entire 7-story mansion, all underground!   


Fisher Cave (photo from www.mostateparks.com) 
Fisher Cave
You can find Fisher Cave inside Meramec State Park in Sullivan. Seasonal tours are led by naturalists, featuring one outstanding cave scene after another. Among some of the highlights are well-preserved bear claw marks, cave wildlife, and a vast array of calcite deposits ranging from intricate helictites to massive columns that are 30 feet tall. 


Onondaga Cave (photo from www.mostateparks.com) 
Onondaga Cave
Onondaga Cave State Park in Leasburg offers visitors the chance to drop into a world of wonder in a National Natural Landmark. Guided tours are given to see towering stalagmites, dripping stalactites, and active flowstones. On the surface, you will find a panoramic view of the Meramec River. 


Cathedral Cave (photo from www.mostateparks.com) 
Cathedral Cave
Also located inside Onondaga State Park, Cathedral Cave's lantern tours last about two hours. You will begin by taking a short 1/3-mile walk up Deer Run Trail to reach the cave's entrance. Most of the cave, if not all, is hollowed in the Gasconade dolomite, which was laid down about 440 million years ago! This tour is limited to the first 30 people that sign up and is available May through Labor Day.   


Mark Twain Cave (photo from www.marktwaincave.com)
Mark Twain Cave 
Traveling north, you will discover Mark Twain Cave in Hannibal. The first organized guided tour took place in 1886, and in 1972 it officially became a National Natural Landmark. This tour begins with a short video about cave formation, and also about how this particular cave inspired the writings of Mark Twain. Five of his books mentioned it, most notably "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." Experienced guides will then take you on an hour-long tour with smooth walkways and no steps, regaling you with the rich stories that surround the cave.  


Cameron Cave (photo from www.marktwaincave.com) 
Cameron Cave
This wonder is actually a property of Mark Twain Cave and offers two types of tours from May through September. The "Lantern Tour" offers a geological look at the labyrinth of passages which are very tightly woven together. There is no electricity inside this cave, thus the need for all visitors to carry a lantern. The other tour offered is a "Total Eclipse Tour." This one is physically demanding. Knee pads and elbow pads are suggested, and everyone wears a helmet with a headlamp. Experienced guides will lead you on a 2-3 hour tour that includes walking, climbing, crawling through damp glacial clay, scrambling about on rocks, and exploring the Swamp. Space is limited and reservations should be made several weeks before your visit.

Well, those nine show caves should get your Missouri caves adventure started. Next week's blog will cover seven more that can be found south of our scenic natural attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks. Caving is a wonderful way for people of every age to enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer in a fun and educational way. Bridal Cave encourages everyone to get out, get active, and experience the exciting adventure that awaits you in all of these amazing Missouri caves. It's family fun... the way it should be!

Unusual Questions At The Park Lead To Amazing Discoveries

With the wide variety of numerous visitors that we see every year at our Lake of the Ozarks family attraction, we are constantly answering all sorts of questions not only about Bridal Cave, but also about the lake area itself. 


Quite often we have folks stopping by the park looking for answers. Sometimes people simply want to know where a good place to eat is or what other local attractions that they should make it a point to visit. We take pride in trying our best to answer all of the questions asked of us. As a matter of fact, we train all of our staff to be familiar with the entire lake area and what it has to offer. 

Other questions may need a bit of research, like asking us to identify some unusual rock or mineral, or even where someone can take an injured animal that has been found. One unusual question was asked of us by email. This particularly interesting question struck a chord with everyone here, and we couldn't resist sharing this awesome story with our readers. It's about an old house that existed before the Lake of the Ozarks was even formed. 


The photos and information about them that are featured in this blog were provided by the question-asker, Tim Helton. He was happy to give us his permission to share the information with all of you.      


Hey Folks,
This is a bit of a long shot but thought I’d throw it out there.

My mother in law lived in this stone house (see picture) that was “somewhere” in the Camdenton, Linn Creek, Ha Ha Tonka end of the lake. She cannot remember where, and the house may now be torn down - but just wondered if anyone there recognized it and might know where it is?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
Tim


After sharing the photo with our Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park staff, our general manager, Steve Thompson, immediately recognized the old house! It actually is a home that Steve has been fond of for years. Turns out, it is located just downstream from the cave on the 8 mile maker of the Big Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. 

We replied to Tim with what we thought was the location of the house, and sure enough, the place that Steve had in mind turned out to be the family homestead that they were looking for! 

Tim wrote back to us, providing some history about the old home, as well as the pictures featured in this blog, which were all provided by his mother-in-law, Sally Raines Henderson. The house still stands straight across the lake from Clearwater Condos around the 8MM of the Big Niangua Arm of the lake.

Another view of the old house. 

Young Sally with her mother, Gladys Mary Wells Raines, near Ha Ha Tonka before the castle caught fire. 

According to Tim, Sally's father, William Maurice Raines, was apparently one of the attorneys working for a firm out of St. Louis that was retained by Union Electric to help secure land rights so they could dam the rivers and create the Lake of the Ozarks. 

The old house as it stands today!

The house is still standing, now a type of a historical marker built in 1926, reminding us of a time long ago that took place in our familiar surroundings near Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park. We want to send a special thank you out to Tom for bringing this to our attention, and also to his family for sharing the wonderful photos and facts with all of us. If you happen to have a question that needs answering, ask it. You never know just who may have the answer that you are looking for.

Recycle Your Christmas Trees at Bridal Cave

Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park are performing a couple of good deeds with one simple action. Your favorite attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks will be taking your Christmas trees once you are done with them, helping you get rid of that large item after the holidays, and at the same time helping to improve fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks. 

That glorious, festively decorated Christmas tree is the center of attention throughout your holiday season. Once you are done celebrating and the lights and decorations have been removed, you have the problem of figuring out what to do with the tree. Most Missouri landfills do not accept Christmas trees. 

From Decoration To Habitat
We suggest giving it back to nature by recycling that used tree into a habitat for fish at the Lake of the Ozarks. This is not only a great way to make sure the tree doesn't go to waste, but it's also a wonderful lesson for children about recycling. Instead of simply becoming trash, this beauty of nature can instead be turned into a much need habitat for the many species of fish that live in the Lake of the Ozarks. 

Greg Stoner, a Fisheries Management Biologist for the MO Department of Conservation, said, "This is a win-win situation. It will help keep discarded trees from along the lake's roadways and provide much needed cover for fish at the Lake."


Bring Us Your Trees!
We would like to assist you in recycling that Christmas tree. We'll be taking them and placing them in the Niangua Arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. Simply drop off your old tree with all of the decorations removed, and we'll take care of the rest. We will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, but other than that, bring them by.


Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park
526 Bridal Cave Road
just north of Camdenton, MO
9:00 am - 4:00 pm daily

Steve Thompson, General Manager of the park, stated, "It seemed like an ideal opportunity to help recycle the old Christmas trees as we have the room on our parking facility to collect the discarded trees, are located right on the lake, and have the shoreline to place the beds.


A Special Bonus For You
As an added incentive, our scenic Lake of the Ozarks attraction would like to give something back to you for giving back to nature. For every tree donated, you will receive a coupon good for 25% off admissions anytime during the 2017 season. (Can you believe that 2017 is only a little over a week away!?!) For more information, please contact Steve Thompson at 573-346-2676 or email info@BridalCave.com. Enjoy those beautiful Christmas trees a little while longer, then bring them on over to Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park and let the fish enjoy them for the rest of the year.

2016 Christmas Fun at the Lake of the Ozarks

The weather has finally gotten cold enough to really feel like Christmas time around here. Our scenic mid-Missouri cave tour is always an excellent cold-weather activity, but there are a few additional fun things going on around the lake area that are only offered during the holidays. Here are few fun suggestions from Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park


Christmas Light Displays
  • Enchanted Village of Lights - Laurie Fairgrounds
    • They claim to be one of the largest drive-through holiday light parks in mid-Missouri. It is free to drive through, but donations are welcome. They are open weeknights from 5-9 pm, and on weekends from 5-10 pm.  
  • St. Patrick's Festival of Lights - Mother's Shrine
    • Located in Laurie, this is the oldest light park in the area. It has grown each year since 1981 to now include 4,000 strings of lights, over 60 automatic timers, and more than 350 extension cords. It is open daily from 6-10 pm through January 1 and is free to the public. 
  • Osage Beach Holiday Lights - Osage Beach City Park
    • You can see a lovely display of holiday themed lights at the Osage Beach City Park and at a variety of spots along Osage Beach Parkway each Wednesday-Sunday until December 31. There is no entry fee to enjoy the fun.

Christmas Village & Ice Skating
The outdoor ice rink at Old Kinderhook is open daily, and every weekend now until Christmas you can also enjoy their family fun Christmas Village. Experience s'mores around the campfire, gingerbread house making, horse drawn carriage rides, elf storytelling, Santa visits, and more.

Main Street Music Hall in The Landing on Osage Beach Parkway offers an entertaining show full of music, laughter, and incredible performances to get you into the Christmas spirit. It's good clean family fun for all ages, and it runs through December 18. For show times and tickets visit www.LakeMusicHall.com or call 573-348-9500. 




That's just a sampling of a few of the wonderful holiday events and activities going on in the area for you to enjoy.

Bridal Cave Is Getting Ready For The 2017 Season

Your favorite Lake of the Ozarks attraction is still open this time of year, but since the crowds are a little smaller than they are mid-summer, we use this slower portion of the year to get the park ready for the 2017 season. Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park will feature some new and exciting things for our returning visitors next year.  

New Backup Generator
Bridal Cave recently had a brand new backup generator installed. Since our cave is a constant 60° and safe from outdoor elements, we tend to get extremely busy during storms and bad weather. Visitors can always enjoy a natural adventure without worrying about what the weather is doing outdoors. 

Before, if the power went out, anyone in the middle of a cave tour was literally left in the dark! A cool experience, but very difficult to get around or enjoy the beauty of the cave. With our brand new backup generator (which has already come in handy this year and works perfectly) we are now even more of an all-weather attraction than we were before. A special thank you goes out to Catalyst Electric, Laclede Electric, and Gasco Propane Co. for all of the hard work they put in to make this happen.


A New Mining Sluice!
Next on the list is restocking all of those incredible rocks, minerals, and gemstones that you see in our gift shop every year. Our general manager, Steve Thompson, just returned from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Florida. It is the biggest industry trade show in America. 

The gemstone mining sluice that stands in front of our gift shop is always a very popular attraction. While attending the expo, Steve purchased a brand new sluice from Sandy Creek Mining Company for the 2017 season. It is twice as large as the old one and offers mining access to two entire classrooms of school children at once! That means a lot less waiting in line and a lot more having fun!   


New Gift Shop Items  
Steve also visited our rock and mineral importers while he was in Orlando for his annual shopping trip. This is when he hand-picks all of the unique specimens that we feature every year. One single room of the warehouse that Steve visited was dedicated to over 17,000 square feet of just Amethyst alone! 

Along with the usual salt lamps, polished gemstones, fossils, and gemstone jewelry, several new items will be added to our inventory. There will be sterling silver gemstone rings, gemstone skulls, iron pyrite obliques and pyramids, petrified wood bookends and tables, just to name a few. 


Clearance Sale Happening Now!
Trucks will be arriving late in January 2017 with all of our new items, and we will have everything on display just in time for our annual "Renew Your Vows for FREE" event on February 12, 2017. In the meantime, we need to make a little room for all of these incredible new additions. 

Many of our gift shop items are on clearance right now, just in time for all of your Christmas shopping! We are here daily from 9:00 am- 4:00 pm, so be sure to stop by and check out the amazing deals we have in store for everyone on your list. 


Bring the family out to visit our Lake of the Ozarks scenic attraction over the holidays. There is still lots to see and do here, even in the cold, winter months. We can't wait to show you all of the new items that we have coming to Bridal Cave for our 2017 season soon too. As always, we do our best to provide family fun... as it should be!
