The cave features a 9 foot soda straw the longest known in the Ozarks, and two bottomless lakes. One of the lakes was discovered in 1993 in the "Silent Splendor" section which made national news. This was Arkansas’ most delicate discovery. Make sure to bring your camera! Gift Shop, Snacks, Picnic area and camping available. « less

Jason was an awesome guide! He was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job teaching us about the history of the cave as well as the geology of how it was formed. I didn't expect to see so many formations so I was pleasantly surprised when we got into the back section. For reference, I also saw War Eagle Cave,... More

Our guide was Jason, let me say.... THANKS JASON! We had a great tour and lots of fun walking through the cavern. Jason was very informative and made the tour very memorable for us. I have been on several tours and having a guide that is involved makes all the difference. I recommend this for anyone who is in the... More

We got lucky and ended up being the only ones on our tour and had a great experience! Our tour guide (Jesse) was great with our 3 year old and even let my son hold his flashlight throughout the tour! The lakes were beautiful and the walkway was pretty easy to navigate, even for a 3 year old and my... More

During our visit to the cave this morning, our guide (Jesse) mentioned they offered wild tours that allowed you to experience more of the cave well beyond the walkways. My husbands eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store!! We have been to several caves before but none that offered anything like the wild tour. We cancelled our... More

My friend I was traveling with picked this stop as his first trip underground. He had a blast and is ready to go again, maybe go Wild next time. It is only about an hour to a hour and a half. Interesting formations and history.

This is the only cave we visited while in the area, so I am not sure how it would compare to others in the Ozarks - but for us it was just perfect. The guide was very good and the walk was not that bad. The history and stories that go with the cave are really very interesting and something... More

We have never been to a cave before. Very happy we did. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting! The formations and lakes were spectacular! Great photos and fairly easy walking. Must see in person!

A different experience. The cave was some what primative but a must see. Mo/Maureen. the guide, had a passion for what she does, and it showed. Very educational. Worth the visit. We have been to a lot of caves, but learned a lot. Thanks Mo.

The cave itself is neat and not too cold. It's a smaller cave, but still full of interesting stories and things to see. My only complaint would be with our tour guide. I think she was a teenager (acted like it anyway) and she was just not good. She kind of had an attitude and some things she said were... More

Cosmic C, Owner at Cosmic Cavern, responded to this review

By all the previous reviews we had with our youngest guide, Ally, we found nothing but positive comments. If something negative happened we would like to know. Our tour is an hour and 15 min. and 1/3 mile, so when she said small cave, I was confused that she may have been at another place. More
