Make Summer Memories Before School Starts!

It's officially August which means the kids will be back in school shortly! Do something fun AND educational that will make memories for a lifetime and visit our family attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks! We have plenty of things to do in the park to keep you busy and the kids will love getting to do something fun before they head back to school! Don't worry though, we won't tell them that it's educational too. Read on to find out what we have in store for you during your visit!

Take a Hike 

As a part of Thunder Mountain Park, we have a 1/2 mile nature trail. Wind through the gorgeous scenery and make a stop at our outdoor classroom, see beautiful limestone shelves, and enjoy the beauty of the Northern slopes of Thunder Mountain Park. You should be able to catch a few cooler days in August which is perfect for taking a hike on the nature trail. There is no charge to hike the trail so you have no reason not to go!

Check Out Our Rock Shop 

We have one of the largest rock shops at the Lake of the Ozarks. We love to see the kid's eyes light up when they see all of the wonderful treasures inside our shop. Sometimes it's just fun to look around and spend time learning about the different rocks and minerals we have in our shop. Don't worry about your kids touching everything because after all, they are rocks!

Take an Underground Adventure  

Of course, one of the best ways to spend time with your family at Bridal Cave is to take a tour of our cave at the Lake of the Ozarks! 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. 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.

Panning For Gemstones 

Kids (and adults!) LOVE panning for gemstones in our sluice. All you have to do is purchase a bag of sand inside the gift shop and take it outside to our sluice and pan for a variety of rough-cut gemstones! The kids love finding treasures in the sand and the best part is this fun activity doubles as a souvenir! Depending on which bag you choose, you will go home with a variety of Emeralds, Fools Gold, Amethyst, Garnets, Sapphires, and more!

Family Fun...As It Should Be! 

Summer will be over soon and if you haven't taken the kids out for some family fun this summer, head on over to the #1 attraction at the Lake of the Ozarks! There is tons of fun to be had and it's educational too! We hope to see you at our Lake of the Ozarks cave very soon!
