Graham Cave State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Missouri consisting of 369 acres (149 ha) located in Montgomery County. The park's namesake, Graham Cave, is a cave in St. Peter sandstone with an entrance 120 feet (37 m) wide and 60 feet (18 m) high and an extent of about 100 feet (30 m) into the hillside. The cave protects an historically important Pre-Columbian archaeological site dating back to as early as 10,000 years ago. Visitors are allowed up to the entrance of the cave where interpretive signs point out significant discoveries. The park includes the 82-acre (33 ha) Graham Cave Glades Natural Area which protects an area of sandstone and dolomite glades with a rich diversity of glade species. The park is adjacent to Interstate 70 from which the entrance to the cave can be glimpsed during foliage-free months.

  • I was on a trip from Columbus Ohio to Moab Ut and this was a perfect place to stop overnight both on my way there and on my way home. It's easy to get to since it's just off I70, and it's convenient.....  more »
  • we visited this park while in Hermann MO. it has some trails and they are not very long. The cave is easily accessible if you just want too see that. Bathrooms were clean. Trails are clearly marked.....  more »
  • Awesome little park about 6 minutes from the highway. I didn't notice the roads sounds but maybe for a couple seconds in passing, the birds and insects are plentiful to keep the mind nature focused. The cave was easily accessible within a .2 mile trek uphill. There are plenty of trials of varying topography and even waterfalls after a heavy enough rain. Truly a great find seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Cant wait to stop by on trips to StL or back home to KC.
  • The perfect place to pull off for the night while traveling! Nice quiet Park, you can hear the trucks on the freeway but it's not bad. There are a few hikes you can do. Better than staying in an RV park at $21
