Most beautiful cave I've seen and I've seen a lot of them. The people who run it are very environmentally conscious and you can tell they really love educating those in their tour. We took the 1 hour Dripstone tour. Really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend it! Kid & elderly friendly as well as wheelchair, stroller accessible.

We have experienced two of the three tours. Both are amazing. I recommend doing the dripstone trail first. It introduces cave formations and knowledge you miss in the Discovery Trail. The Discovery trail has a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time so if you didn't already know some things i feel like you miss out.... More

I've always been a cave junkie, from spelunking unknown caves to Carlsbad or other popular caves. Blanchard Springs is a wonderful cave to visit with a great tour. The wife is a mite claustrophobic and didn't have problems for the most part. There are a couple of smaller tight areas half-way and at the end of the tour, but for... More

We did the Dripstone tour. Very good. Easy to traverse and great formations to see. Our guide Meagan was knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend.

After not having a good experience at Mammoth Cave, I was very leary. The guide assured me it was well lite, no going though tight spaces and you went down there by a elevator. I am so glad I went. It was beautiful. Seniors buy a Federal Park Pass there which is only $10 per senior. It is a life... More

This is really a fun experience. They have started having concerts in the caverns. This is a beautiful cave and the guides are very informative.

There were very nice and a short duration. there are other trips with reservation that are longer. Did not appreciate the guide. It was informative enough but not very nice. Continue on to the springs, the mirror lake and the old mill. Don't park on the road, it is nicer to go from the parking lot on the boardwalk.

We stayed at Golden Pond RV resort in Shirley Ar. and Mike suggested we visit Blanchard Springs Caverns. It was a forty five mile road trip threw the Ozark hills on very windy roads but well worth the drive. The main cavern room was over 1,100 feet long and is a very LIVE cavern. Being over seventy had a little... More
