This was a magnificent cave, well worth seeing. When we were there precautions were underway to stop the spread of white nose disease among the bats. Let's hope they survive.

Did the dripstone tour. Its appx 1 hour, and the walk if fairly easy, and the pace is slow. The guide was excellent, and the cave is absolutely gorgeous. Dont miss Blanchard Springs while you are there.

Don't miss this USFS-managed gem of a cavern system in northern Arkansas. Tours are $10/adults (a little expensive compared to other government-managed attractions) for a tour. USFS rangers give tours and they're informative, engaging, and entertaining. Caverns are gorgeously lit and well-cared for. These are a treat for anyone who loves caves and beauty. Different tours available depending on time... More

Don't let the "White Nose" disease stop you from seeing this. The W.N. is affecting the bats so the park is taking some precautions to protected them -smart! The tour was excellent and the caverns are so beautiful. Don't worry "White Nose" it doesn't bother humans! Go, u won't be disappointed...

The caves are beautiful and the tour was laid back and informative. I would like to visit again when my kids are older so we can do the longer and more physical tour.

Don't you hate the canned, memorized, sing-song narration you get with many and many a tour-guide? That's NOT what Susan and I got when we visited this beautiful living cavern. Our guide, Mr. McIntosh, was super friendly, helpful (especially with the questions of a couple of bright children), patient, and obviously in love with the cave and with his job.... More

We recently took the Dripstone Tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns. This cave has some of the best lighting I've seen in any commercial cave. A lighting engineer was brought in and spent months getting the positions and intensities of lights just right. The Tour Guide was superb; told us her grandmother was the first tour guide at the facility in... More
