    The cave tour was good. It took us about two hours. The lily pad room was the highlight of our trip although it was a little strenuous getting there. This part is optional though but I would recommend...  more »

    Took the grandkids camping to watch the eclipse. It was a hot August weekend but we had a great time. We floated the river, explored Cathedral cave and watched the eclipse from the gravel bar just out...  more »

    We visited Onondaga Cave during the weekday and had a private tour since it was slow. Our tour guide (Travis) was so knowledgeable, friendly and pleasant to be with! That was one of the most amazing tour that I have ever been on! We spent 1.5 hours being guided through this underground wonder. The State has spent a great deal of time and money making this natural wonder accessible for all. This Cave was different from others as the rooms and ceilings were so big and high. The cave was amazing/beautiful compared to the more "commercialize" Meramec Caverns. My only suggestion is that they should add additional billboards on I-44 to attract more tourist.

    Hiked a narrow trail along the bluffs overlooking the Meramec River. Kind of overgrown and rather hilly, but the overlooks made it worthwhile. Took an access road shortcut back to the cave for very interesting tour. Lot's of ups and downs and some slippery spots on the tour, but a great tour all the same.

    It was great for camping and my site was right on the river so I could take photos for my class. Here is one I took of some kids in a tree.

    Much better than Meramec Caverns. Our tour guide, Kegan, was very enthusiastic and friendly. In my opinion, Onondaga Cave is the best in Missouri.

    Beautiful caves. Very educational visit with plenty of scenic hikes and caves to explore. Way better than touristy meramec caverns.
