I am really a one and done person and feel like when you see one you've seen them all. Kids insisted that we go and I'm glad I did. If you have extra time stop in.

Went camping out in Bull Shoals and was so glad that I didn't pass up a trip to the caverns. The tour was totally worth the money you will spend, our guide was very funny and knowledgeable about the caves and the history around them. It was nice and cool down there on a very hot day so that was... More

The cave was worth the drive, but the price was a little steep for the length of the tour. Our tour guide was probably in his early 20's and he was very sarcastic but did give good information. The old town we walked through after the cave tour was very run down and I'm glad we didn't pay for that... More

This attraction is coupled with the mountain view 1890 town. The guide to the caverns was knowledgeable and patient. There were a lot of interactive things to do here. The 1890 villiage was mostly closed off because it was run down. We didn't have to pay to walk through it. They had signs up showing where the buildings were from... More

Awesome Cavern! The tour guides are very pleasant, patient, and knowledgeable. Encouraging questions and quick to answer. The cave is great, formations are well lit. There are even interactive/touch areas and an interactive "music" experience with one of the formations!

I've been going to the Mt. Village since I was a little girl. I've seen it as an active "living" village and as it is now. I still find it wonderfully inviting every time we go, and the cavern is incredible to have such interesting formations for its size. Its worth a trip, certainly!

Very informative and fun. Nice and cool and kids really enjoyed it, as did the adults. In the summer, tour guides are fun college kids. Also fun to tour the old town village also located at the caverns. Self guided but still fun to visit.

It was interesting. Not terribly impressive. The old village was really neat, but dirty and in disrepair. Someone needs to buy this place and take good care of it!

A great way to kill a couple of hours while truly becoming one with the magnificent Ozarks. The limestone formations and history are fascinating.
