  • This is a really cool cave because of the history behind it, and also the enormity of it. I would highly recommend any history buff to visit this place. 
  • It's worth the side trip to Smallin Civil War cave to see the wonders of God-made nature. We arrived on a Monday morning & spent time perusing the gift shop & waiting for a tour to start. We were pair...  more »

  • One of my favorite caves in MO or anywhere. Kevin & Wanetta have a great thing going here. Been there twice now and more trips with friends in future. Great stories to share and just good folks. Go see them soon!
  • Loved our lantern tour what a awesome cave. The owners and family were wonderful people and very knowledgeable. A great experience overall!
  • I went there for field trips with my elementary class two years in a row. The owners are amazing. They operate and show the place. They give the tours and give a great history of the area and cave. The anthropologist on staff is knowledgeable and impressive. I would recommend this for the casual tourist as well as any cave lover. Highly recommended.
  • By far the BEST cave tour in the state of Missouri, very informative and interesting. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly. If you go at the right time the regular tours are very small and feel extremely personal, unlike Fantastic Caverns or Meramec Caverns. For the price you get breathtaking views of a very historical cave along with a great history lesson. I personally went on both tours, the regular tour and the wild tour. The regular tour is great for pictures, while the wild tour is a more up close and personal experience with a cave. On the regular tour our guide, Eric, the archeologist, at the cave gave what I would call the funniest history lesson ever. He was very knowledgeable about not only the geological history of the cave but also the human history of the cave as well. As for the wild tour, all I can say is AMAZING. There isn't any other cave in Missouri that does anything close to this that I know of. The owner Kevin who is the wild tour guide was extremely nice and friendly throughout the whole tour and was willing to help if you needed it. The wild tour was something I will NEVER forget. In order to go on the wild tour you will need to book it about 24 hours in advance. When I booked mine we were set to be the only 3 people on it but another group from Florida, which I thought would have ruined the experience but it almost made it more enjoyable, not to mention the owners cut us a deal they dropped the usual $75 per person price down to $50 and gave us a free helmet rental. All in all, this was the best cave tour in all of Missouri so far, which is saying something because I've been in almost all of the show caves in the state.
  • Great cave!!!! Kevin was an amazing guide! Loved our time there would definitely go back!
