Our guide for our trip was Diane. She was very friendly and patient with our 2 boys that interrupted her constantly and asked tons of questions. And she always stopped and answered them and went on with her stories about the caves. We really enjoyed it.

Wonderful staff and a great tour. The whole family loved it! There was no wait to see the tour and was very reasonably priced. It is a little hard to find so you will need gps.

While this was a beautiful cave, there just was not much to it. The cost to visit the cave unfortunately is like many in the state, a little on the high side. Have been to many caves around Arkansas, and this seems to be one that is well advertised, but not much to it. Still a pretty spot and a... More

We took the deluxe tour and saw both caverns. One was rather new, but you have to walk up and down a steep hill to get to. It was well worth it and the guide was very knowledgeable. We were there on a Wednesday and there were very few people & the guide spent extra time with us. She offered... More

We took the kids during the Crawfish Days Festival in Harrison, AR. Mystic Caverns is a guided tour. Our guides knew lots of facts about the cave. It is not a place you can explore on your own, so if you are looking for a spelunking adventure, this is not it. However, it is a quick afternoon activity perfect with... More

Rained out our river trip and looking for something to do we decided to give the Caverns a visit. I can't believe we have never been here before. The attraction was very well organized and clean. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the site and could easily answer any questions. I highly recommend a visit to Mystic Caverns.

Great people here! Very friendly and helpful. Very informative and interesting history of the caves. Also very helpful in other area attractions (Lost Valley, Cosmic Cavern). If you are in the area make sure you make your way through Ponca and Boxley at dawn/dusk to see the large herds of elk that frequent the area. Unbelievable drive along Route 7... More

Touring both caves takes less than 2 hrs and is worth the time. It's hard to believe what lies just beneath the surface. The tour guides were great. The only thing I would have changed is maybe a smaller tour group. There were around 25 in our group and many were small children so it was sometimes hard to hear... More

If by chance, you find yourself on scenic hwy 7, plan to make a stop at the Mystic Caverns. These caverns are not huge, but worth a stop. You are able to view one or two caverns. The Crystal Dome is beautiful. It isn't large. It was discovered late and virtually has been untouched. The other cavern has been touched... More
