I grew up in Harrison, AR and worked at Hurricane River Cave in the 70's. I had a blast driving my little blue Maverick car down the tiny road leading to the cave. Jim Shermerhorn brought the cave back to life in 1968. He bought the property and worked hard at the cave and his convenience store on Hwy 62-65.... More

I went here a few times and love the waterfall and the views inside. I took pictures here that were Amazing.I took family from out of state and they loved the tour,amazing inside. There is also a wild cave tour you can take it is muddy when you crawl but so well worth it.

Please note that this attraction is currently closed. If you are in Harrison,AR you can go to Mystic and Crystal caves or better yet, head east and go to Blanchard Springs caverns which are very good!

We had plans to visit here on our way back from a weekend getaway. The sign on the side of Hwy 65 said it was open. I did not realize how far off the highway it was. Maybe 2 plus miles, but it was teeth-jarring all the way. They need to upgrade the road in. Then when we got to... More

We found this cave by accident at 6 in the morning on a Sunday! We weren't sure what we would find when we followed the signs, but it was very neat! The owner was very good to us despite us waking him up so early. He let us tour the caves alone which was so fun. The entrance has a... More

I had read about this cave being a little less tourist and more adventurist so I was excited to get there. However I also read that owners of the cave recently changed and that prices were not what were listed on Web and tours less formal. I would like to state that everything I had read was right. There are... More

Prior owners deceased and current owners don't honor Internet prices. The cave planked path is rotting. Not safe. Was happy to leave.

Actually, you can take a wild cave trip here, too. Hurricane River Cave has always been my favorite commercial cave because it's far from typical. There are no colored lights (just white) and no guides. You go. You're on your own. You explore. It's about as far from Fantastic Caverns as you can get. (Tour wise, not geographically.) It's narrow... More

My wife and I went here as part of out honeymoon... it was fantastic. We've been to many national parks and often go of the beaten path... this place has it if you're ok getting dirty! We elected to not do the extreme tour (wife 6 months pregnant) but the kind owners offered to do just part of the extreme... More

My husband and I were trying to come up with something fun today on a rainy Sunday off, and he remembered that he had passed the sign for this cavern a few times. We are so happy we decided to do this. The cavern was beautiful. We got to see tons of bats. We loved that the cavern was self... More
