Incredible US Caves and Caverns
Go spelunking to see an underground mansion, lava flows, a bat colony and the tracks of a giant Pleistocene jaguar. Plan a family trip to visit Carlsbad Cavern, Mammoth Cave and more!Filed under:
While camping in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, we recommend a trip to Meramec Caverns to see how an ancient limestone “Wine Table” and an entire 7-story mansion were built underground. In addition to these unique attractions, pre-Columbian Native American artifacts have also been found in the caverns, formed from the erosion of large limestone deposits millions of years ago. Every year, more than 150,000 visitors walk through the 4.6-mile cavern system.
