The Blanchard Caverns were nothing short of amazing. My 10 yr old had a great time viwing the cave. We went on the first tour... it was not strenuous for either of us. It was cool and damp so wear shoes with grip. The guides were informative and interesting that we didnt realize we were in the cave for 1hr.... More

We drove two hours off the interstate yesterday to see these caverns and they were closed. The power was out after a storm so call ahead today in case they are still closed! The spring, the river trail and the waterfalls were beautiful! The trail next to the river was amazing and great for a long dog walk/swim!

We were frustrated because we showed up at 10:30 to go on the 10:40 tour but a group of 22 ahead of us took so long to get their tickets that we were not able to make the tour. We had to wait a full hour til the next tour went out. The staff were not very sympathetic that we... More

If possible visit when there is music in the caverns like during Christmas holidays. The sound is awesome.

We went on the discovery tour which is their longer tour. It was truly amazing. Pictures don't do it justice because they can't capture how huge these caverns are. Our guide was very knowledgable and loved questions. We will definitely be returning and bringing our kids!

Unfortunately, on any given day, only the long tour or short tour is given. We went to Blanchard Springs on a day when the short tour was given. To be honest, it did not feel like we were in the cave for an hour. Our tour guide was very interested in all he was talking about (and he sang really... More

Not my first time and definitely won't be my last. My favorite of the 3 caves I've ever visited. Cheap prices and never gets old.

This is a place where you can shop, be educated, and take a guided informative tour of beautiful Blanchard Springs Caverns. You can also drive a short distance & walk down to the waterfall. I love this beautiful place.
