This is one of the most amazing places we've gone. The cave is huge, and full of amazing formations. The tour is a very easy walk, and you see more in the 1.5 hour Dripstone tour than your eyes can take in... well worth the visit. The campground is also quite nice, as is the spring and lake.

My granddaughter had a class trip to Blanchard Caverns with her class. I got to go with her and her classmates. We had a great time. It is so beautiful in the caves. I would recommend a tour to anyone who wants to see something really beautiful.

Staff were friendly and very informative. Path was easy for younger and older legs. Would have liked to have had a little more time to really take in the surroundings. It was very quick with so much to see.

Would be great for a hot summer day, since it's cool and damp in the caverns. Very informative & educational. Kids had fun

We spent much of our day at the park, touring the cavern including the nice introductory film and exhibits. The cavern was beautiful and our tour guide, Dalton, was knowledgeable and personable. We took the Dripstone Trail tour (only one available in April) and it was easily doable for a senior like me as well as for the several young... More

My husband and I got to see a beautiful cavern and neat tour. We enjoyed the pretty drive through the Blanchard Springs area as well. Really nice place to visit, especially during the spring season.

I came across Blanchard Springs Caverns 31 years ago and always remembered it as being one of my most favorite caves that I have visited. Was spending a week in West Branson and drove down now with my wife to visit. It is off season, so only one cave tour is currently going on but you visit two very large... More

We took our three children (15, 7, 8) on the tour and it was fantastic. It is a good walk but even the younger ones did fine. I suggest comfy shoes and a light jacket or long sleeve if you tend to be cool. Our tour guide (Paul) was fabulous. This cavern is enormous with some awesome sights to be... More
