Blanchard Springs Caverns, Mountain View

(550+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Explore living limestone caves when you delve into Blanchard Springs Caverns. Guides will lead you through deep caves, referred to as "living" due to their constantly changing state from dripping water. You can choose the intensity and difficulty of the caverns you tour. On the Dripstone Trail, view a wide range of formations and cave creatures, such as salamanders and crickets. This trail is accessible to strollers and wheelchairs, though strong assistance will be needed. Discovery Trail has lots of steps, so you will need to be mobile, but it takes you much deeper and features an underground stream. If you're adventurous, take the Wild Cave Tour, where you explore undeveloped sections of the cave. For this one, you will need to be in good physical shape, have sturdy boots, and be ready to crawl and get dirty.

  • Absolutely stunning! I've been in other caverns but this is by far the best. Huge with beautiful formations. We went back at Christmas and watched Caroling in the Caverns which was fun also. Also, the...  more »
  • Went on the Wild Cave Tour that took us off the regular path to see some awesome parts of the caves. FYI there is climbing, crawling, and some close-spaces. But nothing to hard. Worth every penny!  more »

  • If you're up for the walk and in good health then try the the long tour with over 600 hundred steps if not the short tour had an open theatre with amazing acoustic, sit and sing a song, you'll be amazed. We listened to a Baptist Choir sing one year and it was truly beautiful to hear. Again great country to see going over 56
  • This is a wonderful cave with lots of beautiful structures and formations. The cost as about $10 per person/adult but worth every penny. If you are in the area and enjoy a walk through a cave... I suggest visiting this one.
  • Staff was very friendly. The shop has some cute items for sale. The Tour guide through the Caverns was very informative.
  • Just took the Dripstone Trail tour this week with a group of girlfriends. We all enjoyed the tour and give it a Five Star. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. The Cavern is awesome. Get to the center in time to watch the short movie before the tour for lots of good information about the formation of the cavern, history, etc. As Jimmy Driftwood sings in the movie . . . nature built a beautiful castle and put it underground. Was excited to learn that there will be tours starting at Thanksgiving for "caroling in the cavern." Hope to get tickets for that. These 6 Texas girls were impressed and it was well worth the drive to the Ozarks.
  • We took our three year old to see the caverns and she had a blast. We will be returning very soon for a longer tour.
