Blanchard Springs Caverns can hardly be described in words! You must visit the caves truly understand and appreciate their beauty. Entering the world of the underground is always a thrilling experience.We hope this site help to showcase some of the wonderful and majestic sights you'll see. There are three different tours offered at the caverns; the Dripstone Trail, the Discovery Trail,  the Discovery in the Dark Headlamp Tour and the caverns newest trail, the Wild Cave Tour. Led by knowledgeable Forest Service Guides, the tours wind through water-carved passages, including an underground river and the world's largest flowstone. Each trail is a little different in intensity and visitors should be aware of each trail they decide to take.

The Blanchard Springs Caverns were amazing!! Our tour guide Brian Thomas was excellent. He spoke loud and clear, had a great sense of humor, was very knowledgeable and made our tour great. He even volunteered to take family/couple pictures for everyone on the tour. Also the price for tickets were very reasonable $10.50 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-15 under 6 were free. It was worth every penny. It's a must on the things to do in Arkansas list. Also the drive there was absolutely beautiful.

Exciting place to go underground and explore some really great cave structures. The guide was very knowledgeable and shared many stories of the history of the cave. I recommend to have reservations for which tour you would like or there might be a bit of a wait. There was a snack cart in the parking lot the had inexpensive treats while we waited. My family had a blast!

A hidden jewel (literally) of deep rural Ozark. If you visit Mountain View a not to miss excursion. Excellent young and impressionable staff who reflect their love for the job, even though Govt managed five a professional feel. The lighting inside is spectacular and I wish I was there for a concert which they hold subterranean, wow what a concept! Amazing views and quite relaxing even though you walk for an hour. Don’t miss.

By far, the most AMAZING cavern I've ever been through. Definitely worth the drive and money to go see. It was very reasonably priced. The cavern is MASSIVE and beautiful! The dome rooms are HUGE and various formation BREATHTAKING! The Forest Service did an outstanding job building the pathways and lighting to make the experience even better. The tour guides were great! I can't wait to take some friends through it! The Wild Tour is something I want to do, as well.

Absolutely the most beautiful cave that the public is allowed to enter in North America. Our family of 6 was able to do the Discovery tour for $48 and the Dripstone tour for $48. The wild cave tour is about $75 per person and takes 4 to 5 hours to complete. It's also by reservation only. Don't forget to see the Exhibit hall to the right of the gift shop. It has some interesting information and it is a good way to pass the time while you wait for your tour to begin. To the left of the gift shop is an auditorium with a short history film about the caves. It's old but still informative.
