This is a very nice show cave with a huge amount of pretty formations in great condition. We did the Dripstone tour, which is an easy walk that took about an hour. We had a great tour guide. It was fun and educational for all the family. We had a ten year old and she loved it too. The whole... More

My family drove a bit out of our way to get to this cave but we were glad we did. The cave is amazing. We took the shorter tour because of time, but would've enjoyed the longer tour and possibly seeing bats. Kids were thankful of the variety it gave our trip.

The US government has made these caverns eminently visitable. Elevators and airlock doors allow access and yet maintain the natural environment. Very well done and an experience for the entire family.

love taking the family here.. we always seem to see something different when we go. We have been coming up here for the past 15 years and then go to Mirror Lake and Trout fish or go to the camp grounds and have a picnic for lunch

What can I say... BIG cave with well-run tour; very impressive sights. Unfortunately, the guide seemed to be practicing some kind of weird, overly-inflected "professional" voice, but he was informative.

Blanchard Springs Caverns are truly breathtaking caves. The guides are knowledgeable and the tour flies by. I strongly suggest if you love caves buying both tours if you have the time. They offer different experiences and are really worth it. We went the first time and only bought the one and we immediately came out and bought the other! When... More

loved the cave and the information presented by Paul, our guide. We took the easy walk, but the scenery was still breathtaking.

The staff was so helpful & knowledgable. The caverns were breathtaking. My kids experienced them for the first time & we are looking forward to a longer tour next visit. It was also great for all ages as we had adults, teens, & toddlers in our group.
