Blanchard Springs Caverns is open!! It is NOT included in the 5-year extension of the cave closure for national forests in the Southern Region of the U.S. Forest Service.
Located in Stone County, approximately 2 miles off Highway 14 near Mountain View, the Blanchard Springs Caverns is one of the most spectacular and carefully developed caves found anywhere. Visitors enter a "living" cave where glistening formations like stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and flowstones are still changing. These crystalline formations are the result of minerals deposited by dripping water. Forest Service interpreters guide all tours.
