Due to the owner's death, Hurricane River Cave is now closed. The cave is historically significant and, hopefully, someone will purchase it and re-open it soon.

Cave has new owners and we are working long hours to fix everything up to reopen. Previous owner had allowed unsafe conditions in the cave. We will open when we have a safe, quality operation that the area deserves.

I was told the owner died a couple years ago and it has been shut down. I did drive by there and the gate is chianed up and it looks like noone has been there is quite awhile. :(

There are new owners that are cleaning up the property and improving conditions in the cave. Cave will reopen when all restoration work and safety upgrades are completed.

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 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....More
