Mountain View - Blanchard Springs Caverns

2 Miles off Highway 14 Near Mountain View

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.

A must see if you are in the area! This cavern is on par with Carlsbad in Arizona. I brought three small children and we had a blast on the tour. Worth every penny I spent on the basic tour, which even though it was an hour went by too quickly. They offer more even more in-depth trips too! Once my kids put a few more feet on their height, I want to come back for a four hour delve.

My partner and I agree that our tour guide, Destiny, was the best tour guide we have ever had. She was so knowledgeable and informative and answered every question our group had in detail. She was so sweet and fun as well. The cave itself was incredible. It was stunning and much bigger than we expected. The lighting was spectacular. We learned so much on this tour and experienced one of the country’s most beautiful caverns— highly recommend!

Outstanding place to visit. The guides were very knowledgeable and answered every question. They made the trip fun. Very accessible for disabled people. I am a disabled veteran and they made sure I stayed with the crowd. That's not easy with a cane going up and down slippery trails. It's well worth the hour and price.

Awesome place. Our tour guide was great. Make sure to check out the recreation area before or after. We spent a few hours hiking and fishing at Mirror Lake after the tour. The kids didn’t want to leave.
