Jacob’s Cave was the first commercialized cave in the Lake of the Ozarks area—it opened for tourists in 1932. The cave is famous for its depth illusions, reflective pools, ceiling sponge-work, prehistoric bones (mastodon, bear and peccary) and what is believed to be the world’s largest geode.
On the mile-long tour, you’ll see many types of cave formations, including millions of “soda straws” as well as huge stalactites and columns. The temperature in the cave is 53 degrees year-round.
Jacob’s Cave is located between Versailles and Gravois Milles, off of Route 5 on Route TT. The largest cave in the Lake Area, it is completely accessible to persons with disabilities. Baby strollers and wheel chairs are available for those who need them.
