War Eagle Caverns
War Eagle Cavern, one of nature’s true wonders, opened to the public in 1978. This is one of the newest show caverns in the country. The real story started about 250 million years ago, give or take a million.
In the unspoiled forest of the Ozark Mountains, it’s secluded site was used by the Indians hundreds of years before the first settlers came to the area. Every effort has been made to leave the cavern in its natural state, from the spectacular natural entrance to the underground stream. Courteous, informative guides conduct each tour with a “personal touch.” Visitors will find the tour inside the cavern both educational and enjoyable. Above ground attractions include; Gem and Fossil Panning, Lost in the Woods maze, the Trading Post, Nature Paths and more!
