Other Cave Activities

Stay tuned for updates!


The MCKC has acquired another cave to its growing list of preserves.

Kiesewetter Cave in Pulaski County now belongs to the MCKC. For permits and access please contact the MCKC Board!

A 50 year lease has been signed for Blackfathom Pit and Grandpa’s Hole in Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri. The Blackfathom River Cave is the 7th longest surveyed cave in the state of Missouri at 7.11 miles in length. Both caves are accessed on the same property; however, they do not physically connect. Grandpa’s Hole has an ongoing clean up as the cave was used as a trash dump for some time. The cave has a horizontal entrance, a 58′ pit entrance, as well as large rooms, bear beds, formations and interesting geological bedding.
