“Walk through Ancient, Natural History!”

A walk in Graham Cave State Park is a walk through ancient history. Artifacts uncovered in Graham Cave revealed that people were living in the cave more than 10,000 years ago. To walk through the park’s 386 acres of trees, trails and streams – including the diverse and scenic Graham Caves Glades Natural Area – is to walk in the footsteps of the hunter-gatherers who lived in the area’s caves during the ancient Dalton and Archaic period.  Visitors are allowed in the mouth of Graham Cave, and exhibits detail the life researchers believe early inhabitants lived. The park is a prime hiking location and its campground is perfect for get-togethers when you want to camp in a quiet place. There’s boat access to the Loutre River and all the fishing you could possibly want.

Easy hike to the cave but a disappointment when you find out that it's fenced off. I feel like if you're gonna name a park after the cave, you should at least be able to go inside it!

We arrived late afternoon on a Saturday and had the whole area to ourselves for probably an hour. We stopped at the little display that talks about the cave, and then took the short hike to the cave itself, stopping at a little stair area that had an eroded rock wall dripping with springs. Just beyond that is the cave, though I had thought there would be displays inside however it was completely empty inside and fenced off. Oh well, still a fun little stop and enough of a trek to say we "hiked" in Missouri on our way cross-country.

A very unique cave formation (sandstone and dolomite) and sits less than .3 miles from the parking lot, so you can easily take a look and get back on the road, or stay the day and enjoy a very nice park.

Sign was a little confusing saying 2.5miles to the cave but it was literally 300yards up a paved hill. Cool cave, had to map on google maps because this app brought me the complete wrong way.

Not really a cave to explore but really awesome to see. Reminds me of the video game Halo when you are about to go and drive under ground. Good area to walk around. Plenty of parking when we went. Trails are well marked.

Great stay! We got their at night (kinda creepy) but the duty camper was very nice and super helpful. Went for a walk the next day and the sight is very beautiful! No complaints.

Beautiful place, but nothing much to do in the winter except to hike.
