“Fantastic caverns”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We visited Blanchard Springs caverns while camping at Buffalo Point campground on the Buffalo River. These are fantastic caverns, well worth a visit`. They were about one hour travel from our campground.

“Was sad to see this place this year”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

The up keep on this place was so sad... half of the sites were closed and they had not even been cut around. There was a tree laying across the waterfall that comes out of the caverns, so when people tried to take pictures it had this big dead tree that had been cut up and not removed.. Was so sad!!

“Loved this area! ”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

After our cavern tour we picnicked @ one of the available tables. Following this we strolled through the nature trail. The springs & views provided gorgeous photo ops for our family. Following the walk, we enjoyed fishing on mirror lake. Took home 11 rainbow trout between our two families & enjoyed fresh fish for dinner. The locals were helpful in coaching us on what the fish were biting. Before leaving, we took a swim in a nearby picturesque swimming hole. Next time we will take tubes to float through it. (We were bitten/stung repeatedly by something here) nothing life threatening though. It was a fantastic family day with tons of memories & pics to take home.

“Great little swim”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

My daughter & I took a nice summer swim here yesterday. The water was so clear & pretty. But even on the 4th of July in Arkansas the water was cold. You quickly get use to it. Simply a beautiful place.
