Mystic Caverns

341 Caverns Drive

Mystic Caverns is a commercially operated show cave located on the Newton County and Boone County line in North-Central Arkansas. It is near Marble Falls, AR and 8 miles south of Harrison, AR.

This region of the Ozark Mountains is believed to have been settled in the 1830’s. Marble Falls was at that time the community of Wilcockson, which boasted a large population in the late 1800’s.

In 1981 Dogpatch sold the caves to a local businessman and Bruce Raney, the son of Albert Raney, Jr., managed the caves. It reopened as Mystic Caverns. During 1981, the Crystal Dome project was completed and opened in August.

Omni Properties, Inc. bought Mystic Caverns and Crystal Dome in 1984 and hired Burt Allen to manage the property.

Steven Rush purchased Mystic Caverns and Crystal in March 1988. The caves were managed by Jennifer Updegraff, Steven Rush and Marcia Johnson.

On June 1, 1997 Steven Rush sold the Mystic Caverns and Crystal Dome business to Mystic Caverns, Inc. and leased them the property. The caves are currently managed by Steven and Brenda Rush.

Fantastic caves and entertaining tour guides. Some unique formations that I haven't seen anywhere else. Greater summer fun in natural air-conditioning on a hot day.

The cave was decent but way less professional than other cave tours. The staff was nice but you could tell they weren't knowledgeable about caves and just reciting from their fact sheet. Caves are mostly broken and dormant.

Very nice. There was alot of stairs and it was wet inside. Wouldn't take my grandma again. She is young and enjoyed it but it hurt her knees.

Tour guide was polite and knowledgeable. This was not my first choice in caverns to visit for the first time but I'm happy I did. I feel like I really got that feeling of being in a big beautiful cave underground and for the price you can't go wrong. Would recommend.

The caves had great formations, wish they were a little deeper, but the guide was nice. Great prices in the gift shop! Definitely worth the stop!
