Most People Have No Idea There’s A Massive Underground Lake In Missouri
There is a lot going on underneath the Show Me State. Beneath our feet are thick beds of limestone that, in some places, are slowly being dissolved by groundwater. This natural occurrence creates caves, which is why you’ll find over 6,000 caves in our great state. Another unique formation you can find in the Missouri Ozarks is a huge underground cave full of water known as the Devil’s Well. Most people have no idea where this massive lake is hiding, but it’s totally worth checking out!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
