Description

Ozark Caverns is host to Angel's Shower, an unusual cave phenomenon and a featured part of the tour. It is a never-ending shower of water that seems to come out of the solid ceiling of rock.

The cave also contains formations of soda straws, helictites and stalagmites. There are four species of salamanders, four species of bats and 16 invertebrates living in Ozark Caverns.
