When you first arrive at Bluff Dwellers the view is amazing. You will notice Limestone walls and 35 steps you have to climb to get to the entrance of the cavern..that is the hardest part of the cave. As you go up the steps think about how all this limestone is a part if a landside that sealed this cavern off from man for more than 3000 years. Since 1925 it has been owned and operated by the same family and guaranteed you will be amazed by what is under this Bluff~ The tour underground takes around 45 min-1hr, well lit and guided. The Browning Museum is also included on the tour, a wonderful collection of mineral rocks,fossil rocks,artifacts and antiques.

Not only was this place an amazing hole in the wall (pun intended), the natural beauty was definitely a site to behold! A big piece of historic Ozark pie! But the main attraction was one Mary Jane, who delighted us with a tour. She went above and beyond to make us all feel safe with a touch of firey wit.... More

My daughter and I wanted to take a cave tour within a few hours drive from home, and from reviews and information online, we chose Bluff Dwellers Cavern in Noel. With two carloads of kids ages 4-13, we headed out early for the cave hoping to create a good family outing memory. We were greeted immediately by a very friendly... More

Stopped by because we are on vacation in Grove, OK. This is the top cave in the area. The tour guide is very knowledgable and the cave is beautiful. Don't drive by without stopping. Price is a little expensive, but to keep this nice cave going requires money.

We had no idea what to expect when we visited the cavern but we were pleasantly surprised. The caves are extensive and many aspects are unique. The guide, Ryan, was really knowledgeable and added a lot of personal stories of his times as a guide and his knowledge of the family.

With a group of tour guides traveling eastern Missouri looking at different caves and this was definitely the favorite of the the day. Each cave has its unique features and this one definitely caught my eye. The limestone the cave is formed of is amazing and the faculty was very passionate and knowledgeable. Our guide, Corrine, was awesome!! Made the... More

A wonderful, narrow cavern just down the road from us. It has interesting formations and a huge, flat rock that fell from the ceiling above laying on another rock, held up like a perfectly balanced teeter totter.

Hopped down the road from my club's event at the river ranch to check this out with the wife and some other members. Our guide was Mary Jane and she was awesome. The caverns are beautiful. Check this place out and ask for Mary Jane if you come by it, tell her the Freaks of Nature sent you.

Under new management that were really nice, they gave us a discount because the museum and gift shop was closed and being remodeled. We got to see baby salamanders and some bigger ones which was cool! Beautiful cave overall! About a 45 minutes tour.
