  • I had some extra time, so decided to try this venue. It's worth a stop on purpose! Great history for all ages.  more »
  • Although the cave is not huge, there is so much history and the tour guide knew all the stories and folklore, from the Osage Indians, Wild Bill Hickok and Civil War soldiers.  more »
  • We were passing through and saw a billboard for the cave, so we decided to check it out. Everyone we encountered was very pleasant and our tour guide, Eric, had us laughing a lot! The cave was beautif...  more »

  • I loved this place! The man and his wife that run this historic attraction are extremely kind and friendly. They are very educated on the history of the cave. Smallin Cave was my favorite stop the whole time we were in Missouri. I would highly suggest for anyone to go check out this peice of history that is still here for us to explore. You will not be disappointed, you will surely enjoy the whole experience! I sure did.
  • This historical landmark is such a fun place to visit in Ozark Missouri! The cave history was brought to life by our handsome tour guide Eric. We returned for a “Wild Tour” where you go deep into the cave with a guide. There were beautiful formations and sparkly dew visible with our headlamps.
  • The cave is very large and pretty, but the actual tour does not go very far into the primary cave. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is a good place to see cave crayfish. The gift shop has cute souvenirs.
  • What a beautiful piece of land, history, and more!! Our family went on the cave tour New Years Eve And it was fascinating and breathtaking. Our kids (ages: 7, 5, & 3) came along and enjoyed it immensely. Our tour guide Eric was full of knowledge and passion. The staff is friendly and full of historical information about this area. Wanetta, one of the owners was a delight to spend time with and so hospitable. This would be a fun date, family outing, group activity, etc.
  • Our Homeschool group had a wonderful time! The tour was great, very friendly staff. Lots of fun. Thanks so much for the wonderful field trip! ~Straightway Homeschool Assembly
