Fisher Cave is known for its large and uniquely shaped formations. The cave shows a vast assortment of deposits, including stalactites, stalagmites and columns. It is home to various troglobionts like salamanders and frogs.

Although generally rather spacious, there are a few locations on the tour where the ceiling is only 1.25 m high, or the passage only 40 cm wide. Together with the flashlights, this tour is rather close to a true cave tour, and definitely not suitable for visitors with claustrophobia. Fisher Cave is only one of 30 caves found in Meramec State Park.
