Stopped here with my husband on a road trip. Would highly recommend to folks with kids. They have many family activities and the cave is pretty and has local history associated with it. The tour also ends with a laser light show.

Just left DeSoto Caverns & so happy we went there. I researched a few different caverns in Al & AR & this was the perfect fit for young kids & for me as I'm claustrophobic. The main room is huge, 12 stories high & the...More
I'm a child of the 50's so when I say "old school" I know what I'm talking about. This is like a trip back in time, when kids played hard and got sweaty! These folks aren't competing with Disney for rides and entertainment but our...More
