I wanted to visit this place so bad. We drove all the way up there anticipating a day of fun. But it wasnt to be a sign on the gate said closed bats were sleeping. What a disapointment but it is what it is. If you do decide to visit you might want to call first to make sure they are open, the info I had led me to believe they would be open.

“Cavern tour”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The cave tour was special, but on our return trip with our whole family we went on a night tour and it was a blast. you need knee pads and they take you to places most never see. You must make arrangments for this tour.

“A little gem hidden in the woods.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We passed this place by last year when we went to War Eagle Mill. We decided to check it out this time around and were pleasantly surprised. This is a first class operation in a lovely wooded setting. The trading post is nice and it is easy to see that the owners are working hard to do things right. There was a lot of work going on in the Cavern itself. The owner is incorporating part of what was the wild cave tour into the main tour by a new connection from one to the other. This will increase the size of the main tour. They were working on the expansion as we toured the cavern. I will definitely check it out when we return if the expansion work is completed as it was extremely disruptive to have to keep stopping the tour while they passed through with their equipment but this will only be a temporary inconvenience. Our guide was a great asset. We got to see some tiny bats hanging from the cavern ceiling.

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

While staying in Eureka Springs, my husband and I ventured out to visit the infamous hiding place of Jessie James and boy was it worth it. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. In one hour we got a history, geology, and zoology lesson that was as informative as it was fascinating. The trails are wide and smooth, but steep. I would not recommend this attraction to older people with knee issues. The gift shop is kind of touristy, but not overpriced. Definitely a must see in Arkansas!

Reviewed September 25, 2012

Great attraction and day trip from Eureka - access by car or boat...well worth the trip, visit the War Eagle Mill at the same time.
