June 6th is National Caves and Karst Day

The National Caves Association is celebrating their second annual National Caves and Karst Day on June 6th. Members of the NCA created this day to raise awareness of the crucial roles both caves and karsts play in our lives and encourage people to get out and visit a cave this Summer! One of the best spots to learn all about caves is right here at the Lake of the Ozarks! Missouri is known as the "Cave State" with 22 show caves open to the public. The Lake of the Ozarks is the only area in the world where you can find four show caves within 30 minutes of each other. These caves include: Bridal Cave , Jacobs Cave in Gravois Mills, Ozark Caverns in Linn Creek, and the newly reopened Stark Cavern in Eldon. Even if you do not have the chance to see a Cave, it is the perfect day to take the time to sit down with your family and plan out a couple days this Summer to get out and see some of the best Missouri Show Caves !

The Most Award-Winning Bridal Chapel in the Ozarks!

Bridal Cave's first modern-day wedding occurred almost 70 years ago! Since then, our unique wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks has joined over 3,600 couples in marriage. Our cave has a long history of weddings, starting with two Native Americans from Osage Indian Tribes a very long time ago. We have continued the wedding tradition inside our Lake of the Ozarks underground wedding chapel since our first wedding and have become the most award-winning Bridal Chapel in the Ozarks! In fact, we have received several awards from well-known news sources, take a look!  Award Winning Bridal Chapel!  We are grateful for the success of our wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks . We have had the honor of being a part of so many couples special day, and that is the reason we continue this tradition at Bridal Cave.
