Outstanding oak and oak-pine woodlands are features of this 2,082-acre park in the rugged Elk Hills region of southwest Missouri. These glades, woodlands and bluffs lie along scenic Big Sugar Creek. A three-mile hiking trail traverses the park's unique features, designated as the Elk River Breaks Natural Area. The park is managed out of Roaring River State Park.
The cave was discovered and explored in 1925; excavation began in 1927. Substantial artifacts were discovered, including arrowheads, grinding stones, tools made of bone, and skeletal remains of the early inhabitants, including American Indians; some items date to 5,000 B.C.
This cavern has been open every day since 1927 for public tours. Only 50 percent of the cave is developed—the remaining areas are preserved for wildlife. The educational, family-friendly tour lasts 45 minutes to one hour. It is an easy, well lit walk. The cave has several recognized cave formations, including one of the largest rimstone pools in the state.
The on-site Browning Museum, included in the tour, holds more than 700 locally-found arrowheads and other chipped artifacts, plus a collection of mineral rocks, fossils and artifacts. To fully enjoy the cave and the museum, allow 1-1.5 hours.
