Owner description: Cosmic Cavern was discovered in 1845, but wasn'€™t developed until 1927. 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!

The cave itself is typical in most ways, but its history is fascinating. The guides here are so knowledgeable and can answer your questions very well. There is a lovely gift shop where a person can spend some time browsing (and buying). Prices are reasonable and the people who run it are terrific folks. If you're visiting the Ozarks near... More

I enjoy taking cave tours and this one is on top of the list. I have visited this cavern twice and still enjoyed it. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable. The two lakes in the cave amaze me and the fish that live in it. If your in the area, this tour is well worthwhile and priced just right.

Our guide was very informative and easy to talk to. It was a moderately easy hike and well lighted. The lakes were so pretty. I hadn't known what to expect and was surprised at their color. The gift shop is also very nice. Well stocked and lots to look at. Had a great time.

We had been to the Talking Rocks Caverns first and enjoyed it so much we decided to go the hour drive to Cosmic Caverns. It was a lovely drive through the Ozarks seeing Table Rock Lake and the various sights along the way. The Cosmic Caverns were so different from the Talking Rocks that it was amazing to compare. They... More

Visited Thanksgiving weekend and I'm so glad that we did. We had stopped by because we were on our way out of town and it seemed like one of the local attractions, but it turned out to be my favorite location that we visited (visited Eureka Springs). Our guide, Jessie, was not only entertaining and patient, but extremely knowledgable about... More

Cosmic Cavern is amazing! I'm from the Tampa Bay area and had never been in a cave before. It was a great experience being almost 400 ft. below ground level. I now have a new appreciation for our miraculous planet! The staff was great and extremely knowledgeable! There is an immense amount of history deep below our Earth's surface, and... More

My husband and I visited the cavern on our anniversary trip. We very much enjoyed our guide Jason and his wonderful sense of humor and excellent knowledge and obvious love for this truly unique place. My husband was a very happy camper and will not likely forget this trip any time soon!!!!

My girlfriend and I went on a Friday afternoon to do the regular tour and the wild cave tour. The wild cave tour was awesome. There was a lot of free climbing through the cave, including army crawling through pools of mud and shimmying up a 45 foot chimney crawl. The tour was physically challenging and could be pretty scary... More
