“An unplanned treat...”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I was on a motorcycle trip to Arkansas (from Texas) with friends. We had decided to leave Mountainview and ride the popular Push Mountain Road, when we came across Blanchard Springs Caverns on the map, so we decided it would be a nice stop on our journey. We were greeted by a park employee who was nice enough to catch us up with the previous tour that left 5 min earlier. The sights in the caverns were simply amazing. The Blanchard Springs Recreation is a short drive away with some beautiful shots along the springs with a waterfall.

“Best cavern I've ever been to. Really cool!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Even though we took the short tour, it was Magnificent !
The guide was super funny and very informative. They have the lights set up where they will light up certain sections at a time as you walk through. Ever light click was a "WOW!!"

“Fantastic Caverns”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I was surprised how huge the caverns turned out to be. The tour was very interesting and informative but they do herd everyone like cattle. I generally like to hang back and take photos when no one was around but they tried to keep us together. The tour overall was an hour and don't forget to bring a jacket its a little chilly inside. There were two tours the long one and short one we took the short one for the sake of time. if you are driving up there you might want to take scenic route which was windy and neat. This was my first cavern tour and I will probably be disappointed any place after this.

“CLOSED DUE TO GVM'T SHUTDOWN”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Not shown on web site, but we called for a reservation and the recording said it was shut down. What a shame, but It saved us a 3hr drive each way by calling on 10/10.
