I’ve been to a lot of caverns but the Dripstone trail is probably the most dynamic and beautiful trail. The hall is enormous. Brady and Grant were our guides and were very informative and friendly. It is a very nice drive to Mountain View, a little curvy but scenic. The two main trails take an hour or an hour and a half for the Discovery tour. Arkansas is very blessed for having such natural beauty and the caverns is the cherry on top. The Park Service does an outstanding job of maintaining the site. Definitely worth a day trip or stay in nearby Mountain View if you’re not a camper. Make a great weekend outing.

What a wonderful place to see. Magnificent display of nature's beauty. We did the Dripstone tour for the ease of access and no stairs. Guides were well informed and engaging, if a little corny at times. Well done pathway and amazing views. Well worth the trip and time.

Mirror Lake is beautiful. Gorgeous waterfall with plenty of shade and great photo ops. Make time to visit this place. You will not be disappointed.

This is an excellent adventure for all ages Our group was 60 to 75 with knee replacements. We took the shortest route. Later we wish we had done the two hour tour. The photos you will get great

These caverns had several tours to choose from. There are many large rooms and passages. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had worked at the caverns for a long time-the history of these caverns is fascinating. There are well lit pathways and stairs and tours of different lengths and different levels of difficulty. Would love to return and explore other areas of the caverns. Mirror lake and springs are also near by.
