Great campsites. The water is always cold no matter how hot it is outside. The cave tours are awesome!

We loved our road trip from Batesville, AR through Mt. View and on up to Blanchard Springs! We took a jeep with the top off and our dog and hit the road. Stopped in Mt. View at an adorable soda fountain for lunch and headed to Blanchard Springs. We didn't do the caves this time around just enjoyed Mirror Lake and played int the rivers and streams. It was a wonderful day taking it easy and enjoying nature!

This is quite the adventure. If you have never been in a cave before you MUST go here. The tours are guided, the staff is VERY knowledgeable they are very good with school aged children (school groups). I have been several times and each time I am amazed at the things I missed or forgot about. This is a must when you visit the Ozarks.

We did some hiking back in behind the spring, There is a pretty waterfall around the bend and we hiked along the creek bed up the hill. Beautiful rock formations and good hike. Mirror Lakes unusual blue/green color with the waterfalls leading to the rock walls of old Mitchell Mill was a nice way to spend the afternoon.
