“Fantastic Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

If you like the outdoors, this is your place. Its beautiful! The trails are great and the picnic area is outstanding. Make sure you bring plenty to eat, because the hikes and walking will make you hungry

“No other place in the world like it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Been there done that many times and hope to go back. We started going to Blanchard Springs back before there were any known Caverns to tour, like in the 1950's. My Dad and cousins explored the caves with nothing but a flashlight and were luck they didn't get lost or hurt, lol. I can't express how beautiful the whole experience of Blanchard Springs and the Ozarks are. Is the perfect vacation destination and don't miss the Folk Center in Mountain View! Blanchard Springs & Caverns should definitely be on everyone's "bucket list".

“Ozark Highlite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Very scenic Ozark Mountain get away. Great camp ground on Sylamore creek. Blanchard Springs Caverns is located in area. Better know as Half Mile Caverns to us locale Spelunkers. If you are visiting the Ozarks this needs to be on your bucket list

“Beautiful and picturesque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Loved the accessible walkway not to far to walk before you can enjoy the gorgeous scenery. Perfect even for the handicapped. Great place for pictures and relaxing.
