Some seasonal businesses are closing but thanks to Bridal Cave’s comfortable 60-degree temperature Bridal Cave is OPEN 362 days a year. We pride ourselves on being a year-round attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks offering our visitors plenty of family fun! Even though the weather is cooling off, you can enjoy nature year-round when you visit Bridal Cave.


It's Comfy in the Cave Even if it's a little chilly to be hanging around outside at the park, it's always a comfortable 60° inside Missouri's most scenic cave tour, allowing you to get out of the house and into nature without freezing! Shimmy out of that heavy winter coat once you're inside the cave and feel like it's a nice, cool, fall day again.

Instead of getting stir-crazy stuck inside the house, bring the family here to hang out with us over the holidays. We are open daily from 9 am - 4 pm with Bridal Cave tours leaving every few minutes. The only exception will be that we will be closed on Christmas Day …
