We went to the caverns this summer, and it was an awesome experience! They've got 3 trips.. we went to the cathedral part where there's a wheelchair access to go inside the cave, and the part where it lasted for about an hour and a half, which lets you go down deep the earth. There are 700 steps/stairs to look... More

I have been to many caves over the years, but this one was by far the largest. Great tour guides and beautiful cave formations. We took the Discovery tour with our 4 and 7 year olds and they did fine. (Although I did have to carry my daughter on the stairs.) This was a truly unique cave!

We visited the Caverns and went on one of the tours. I was able to take lots of pictures inside the cave. It takes you 21 stories down in an elevator and even further down if you take the discovery tour. Afterwards we went on a hike to the dam and then went in the water for a cool refreshing... More

My husband, two young children, in-laws and I visited and had an incredible time! We took the dripstone tour and it was breathtaking. I would love to go back and explore the caverns more! What a gem!

Blanchard Springs Caverns is a jewel and very cool on a hot summer day. The tour guides are very informative and the formations are quite interesting. They recommend taking a light jacket or sweater due to the 58 degree temp and 100% humidity, but on the Discovery Trail, the temperature was fine due to the 700 steps, which fortunately are... More

My primary worry with going in this tour was that I am in my third (healthy) trimester of being pregnant, but am physically fit, so I took a gamble on this tour with the intention to stop if I was uncomfortable. There were lots of stops, especially if you stayed in the front which also gives time for better photo... More

Wonderful experience. The caves are beautiful and well maintained. A must see for a family vacation. Very knowledgeable tour guides. Lighting in cave is tastefully done. Tour had no stairs and handicap assessible.

My 21-year-old daughter and I took the Wild Cave Tour. I enthusiastically recommend this tour. It is strenuous and requires a lot of physical movement (crab walking, bending, climbing, descending, etc.) If one is not in good shape one should probably avoid this tour. Afterwards one will remember some muscles one has forgotten... you'll be sore. There are not many... More
