The cave tour was good. It took us about two hours. The lily pad room was the highlight of our trip although it was a little strenuous getting there. This part is optional though but I would recommend it if you are able. The kids bought a mining kit from the gift shop and did it out front in their mining station. The cave was priced a little higher than I would have liked but it did make for a nice afternoon while we was in the area.

Took the grandkids camping to watch the eclipse. It was a hot August weekend but we had a great time. We floated the river, explored Cathedral cave and watched the eclipse from the gravel bar just out from our camp. Campgrounds were fairly nice, shower house was OK (granddaughter was not impressed, boys were fine). Overall about what we expected. PS No cell service in area, kinda nice.

We recently visited the cave because it was more reasonably priced than the more well known cave. It was incredibly beautiful. It takes about an hour to walk through. I am 67 and had no problem with the changes in elevation.The guides are very good and enthusiastic. The park also has hiking trails, camping ,and a canoe launch. Pretty good vacation for outdoors people. Check it out

We spent 2 nights at the State Park to see the full solar eclipse. We were impressed by the facilities. For a state park, it was very good. The staff was relaxed, welcoming and helpful. The bathrooms were very well maintained, and they come around daily on a golf cart to sell ice and firewood. No cell phone service. Very narrow bandwidth wifi. There is a phone and ATM at the info center where they also give tours of the amazing Onondaga Cave. The only downside was that the campsite was not at all private. It had a tree, but no bushes. I prefer that. But it was quiet and the other campers were very respectful.

Onondaga Cave State Park is one of Missouri's natural wonders.
Tours give plenty of understandable information about the formation of caves, the creatures that live in them and how fragile the underground ecosystem is. Worthwhile trip for older teenagers and adults. Beautiful scenery inside the cave.
If you've got children than Meramec Caverns is a better (although significantly more expensive) choice. Both are off Interstate 44 on the St. Louis side of Missouri.
