Cleveland Cave, St. Clair County, Missouri
Located on private property, Cleveland Cave was the first documented cave in the county and is also the longest one at just over 2000 feet in length. The cave is used for recreational, educational and scientific purposes. To prevent further vandalism, the cave was gated and MCKC began managing it for the owner in 2014.
