we used to explore this cave a lot when i was a kid with my dad. lots of halls and rooms and the opening would fit two semi-trucks, nearby is an 80 foot cliff richlanders used to jump off of into the gasconade. i can't remember what highway it was but it was directly next to a high bridge.

i heard this cave was turned into a restaurant. does anyone know if the restaurant is still in operation?

Used to be Caveman Barbecue. Now called Cave Restaurant. Not the most imaginative of names.

Yeah I floated to it once. We took the long float. It sucked. The gasconade is a nasty fucking river. We got leaches and saw what appeared to be poisonous snakes within the first 10 minutes. And there was no current so we had to paddle the whole way through some nasty stagnant water. Huge nests of spiders falling on our heads repeatedly.

But the cave restaurant was fairly nice. Food was good.

sorry for hitting this QUOTE thing i cant see a REPLY button. anyway, i can imagine the float trip but back in the 60s we had a current but on our way up to Charlie HOrse dad pulled back a branch and pointed to some copperheads hanging in the trees and held the limb way back as they were trying to drop down on us LOL. then one time at what was called 'The Rock' where there was a big rope that went way out to the middle of the river where we all loved to swim but we always had a tester. someone would hang on and stick a big paddle or stick all around to make sure there were no cottonmouth nests that had floated into the vicinity. one time this football player (the star player wouldn't you know in Richland, his name was Roger HIghtower, just grabbed on and swung out and dropped right into a nest of cottonmouths... he was dead by the time he reached the shallows. a tragedy for Richland, indeed! my dad was quite the daredevil but fortunately agile, careful and very strong. sometimes i did just have to say no, though lol. i wouldn't let him hang me by my heels and swing me off the 80 foot cliff down hill from CHarlie HOrse, for instance, though my big sister would ;D

When I saw you mention that you floated there, I immediately thought, "Isn't that the float where Sub's GF was topless?" According to your link, it is.... it's good to know I remember the important things...
