  • This is a great place to stop and have a little lunch. There is a play structure, some paths to follow, and the cave is interesting. Well maintained.  more »
  • This is a nice park. Wonderful place to Bbq or have a picnic. We have had family reunions there. Don't expect a cave you can go into, there is a fence in front. Cave does not go very deep.  more »

  • Graham Cave State Park's centerpiece is of course, the cave. Graham Cave is special in that it formed in a way that is pretty unique, and it exists as one of the best examples of this kind of formation. The park includes several short-ish trails and camping opportunities and is convenient to I-70 for a quick visit.
  • We walked the trail by the river it was so beautiful and lush green. What a wonderful place it was quiet surprising. There were flowers everywhere the water was clean. We saw a turtle and lizards but the mosquitoes where the worst part of the whole trip. Every time I stop to take pictures they attacked me. besides that it was amazing and beautiful
  • Staff is very friendly and helpful. Trails and camp sites are maintained. Online reservation system was easy to use.
  • Very nice state park beautiful trails large pack's of young whitetail deer running about family of foxes trucking back and forth birds galore that i never seen before had the best time of my life when i found Indian head by river found so many mushrooms well we fry them up last night boy were they good
  • This is a cozy state park about an hour from StL. The bathrooms are decent, the sites are as expected, and the cave, although completely blocked from entering, is neat to visit.
