The cave had a good tour with plenty of geologic features. Our guide, Sierra, was pretty good but could not answer any questions. Hopefully she will become more informative with experience. A member of our family that had visited before stated that Paul, the owner, gave a highly more enhanced tour. Well worth the $15 adult and $7 child fees.... More

The legend behind this cave was very interesting. Kids enjoyed the story of the lost treasure still hidden within cave. This is a rugged cave. Don't wear your new shoes. The gift shop and meusum was small but nice to look around while we waited for tour. "Chief" the cave dog was a hit with the children. Owner gave tour.... More

I like show caves but wild caves are more exciting. This one was in a whole different category. It has been altered too much to be a wild cave. It is much too dirty and rough to be a typical show cave. I call it a working cave. It somewhat resembles a mine. There is a legend about Spanish conquistadors... More

When we read in the Arkansas Democrat that the public was invited to see a film in this cave wel,l we HAD to go! It couldn't have been more perfect! There we were in a cave with bats flying overhead and watching bats fly in a cave on the makeshift movie screen in the campy 1987 film "The Lost Boys"!... More

In an hour tour you are able to visit this beautiful cave and be told it's history and theory of remains of a Spanish treasure. The tour guides are fun and well educated, making the tour seem much less than an hour and very exciting. They are great to answer any question you have. They also have a nice little... More

We stopped in on a road trip. We parked and paid and then were kind of rushed into the trip that was about to start. Unfortunately we had eaten about half and hour before and about five minutes into the tour my son was begging for a restroom. We were pretty much still at the mouth of the cave and... More

This small cave is not commercialized like most caves. A real treasure map is near craved into a rock by early Spanish explorers. The owner is still actively searching for the treasure. It is locked shut but they will give you a tour for a very small fee. The cave is still natural with no walkways. You only get to... More

We went last weekend while visiting friends that live in Arkansas. We didn't know what to expect - and walked away loving it! The kids found it exciting that the owners and his team are still searching for the treasure and I thought the owner, our guide, did a great job sharing about the history of the cave and talkiing...

The last time I went to Old Spanish Cave was when they had it all decorated up for Halloween. So if you are in NW Arkansas during October of any year, be sure to visit the haunted cave. When you go, do ask about the legends of the treasure that has not yet been found, supposedly. I wonder how many... More

Went this past weekend with my son's Boy Scout troop. Spent the night in the cave. They gave us a shortened tour with the lights on, then allowed us to change into our "caving clothes." The next two hours were spent crawling around in dark, tight spaces. Beautiful formations to be seen. The two guides were very friendly and knowledgeable... More
