About Jacob's Cave

Jacob’s Cave is Lake of the Ozarks’ largest and most scenic cave. We are one of Missouri’s and the lake area’s top tourist attractions with visitors coming from all over the world. We offer family fun that caters to all ages with a fully lit and paved walkway that is completely handicap accessible with no steps…perfect for baby strollers and electric wheelchairs.
Jacob’s Cave is famous for it’s depth illusion, reflective pools, ceiling sponge-work, prehistoric bones (mastodon, bear and peccary), and the world’s largest geode. On the mile-long tour, you will see every type of cave formation imaginable, from millions of “soda straws” and massive stalactites and columns, to delicate helectites. Evidence of six ice ages and three earthquakes can be seen in the cave. The temperature remains a constant 53 degrees inside the cave.
