We went on both the Discovery Trail and the Dripstone Trail. Both were very pretty and interesting, and very different. I would recommend both if you have the time. We visited on a Wed in July and it was busier than I expected. I would...More

This was the most amazing Cave we have ever seen!! The views are breathtaking. The beginner trail was easy to walk with young children. The guide answered all questions and was very helpful and friendly.

We took the Dripping Springs tour. Braden and DJ were our tour guides, they were knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy what they do. The caverns are absolutely breathtaking but be ready to smell a little bat guano haha! We really enjoyed visiting Blanchard Springs!

Astonishing views of nature. Its amazing that this exist inside a mountain. We took the 1 hour tour and it was $10 each for adult. You take an elevator 200 ft into the cavern and it's an hour tour. They have other tours available too.....More

I think around the grounds of the area would be an excellent place for your pet. On our tour, there was an individual who took a service animal with him, so that is possible. However I don't know if this would be permitted... More
