Bridal Cave is a cave located near Camdenton, Missouri, in Lake of the Ozarks. It takes its name from the Osage Native American legend of Conwee, the son of an Osage chief who desired to marry the daughter of the chief of the opposing tribe. He is said to have kidnapped her for this reason. She committed suicide, and later her companion was wed to Conwee's brother Prince Buffalo in Bridal Chapel. Historically, the first couple to be married were married in June 1949, just one year after the cave was opened to the public. Over 3000 weddings have taken place in this cave.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bridal Cave by using our Camdenton trip itinerary planner.

A Lake of Ozarks hidden treasure! A guided tour through cave systems that date back thousands of years and a few artifacts left behind by early discoverers. Would definitely be an amazing spot for a very small wedding since the chambers do not allow for large groups and include passage ways that are extremely tight but necessary to get into the main chamber for the classic Bridal Cave photo that they will take for you and available for purchase after the tour. Definitely recommend gift shop full of cute small jewelry and larger geode creations for purchase $$$
This is a nice little tourist spot. Tours begin every several minutes. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The cave is quite cool and damp. Parking is available for both cars and boats. There is a gift shop on premises, and a lookout spot with a pay-per-use telescope for viewing the lake.
