Caverns- America's Only Ride-Through Cave -
A small, family owned business, it was discovered in
1862 by an Ozarks farmer - or more precisely, by his
dog, who crawled through an entrance. It
until five years later that the first exploration took place: 12 women from
Springfield, answering a newspaper ad seeking
explorers, ventured into the cave. Their names
remain on a cave wall today.
the beauty of Fantastic Caverns is vulnerable,
the Cave is toured in jeep-drawn trams. Since
you ride all of the way through, you experience
the magnitude, the stillness, and the splendor
of Fantastic Caverns while preserving its
natural features. Wise stewardship
preserves this natural wonder for your children
and grandchildren for decades to come.
