The location is remote - a long drive on back roads, and the facilities are minimal - no food, but the caverns are well worth seeing. The rooms are large and the decorations are magnificent.

During the spring break early this year we visited this Cavern with my family (wife and 2 boys). It was indeed a breathtaking view seeing all the beautiful rock growth over millions of years. Forest Service department is managing and they have maintained it well with great lighting and our tour guide explained every detail of it. My kids asked... More

Over Thanksgiving break, my family and I (two "senior" parents and five kids ages 9-14) drove from Mountain Home to tour the cave. It was worth it! The staff was professional and friendly, and our cave tour was interesting, informative and casual enough to ask questions. Alex is one of the most exceptional guides I've experienced. She knows her stuff.... More

We did the easiest tour and it was just right. It's a beautiful cave and our tour guide was very enthusiastic. After the cave tour we drove down and looked at the opening to the spring and also viewed the lake and the man made Falls. All in all a beautiful day, a beautiful place and it will be a... More

Blanchard Caverns are one of the most amazing things I have seen! It is a Forest Service site, so very well maintained and well done from top to bottom. Do not miss this if you are in the state of Arkansas!

We were in awe of these spectacular caverns! The tour was great and so was the tour guide. It was fascinatingly beautiful in there--way more than we expected. And the lighting was excellent too. Would highly recommend taking this fabulous tour!

We were lucky/smart enough to reserve our tickets for the Dripstone Tour a few weeks in advance. The guide said they were at max capacity all day and had been sold out, so walk ups were being turned away. The longer, more difficult tour that I wanted was closed due to bat hibernation after Labor Day. The Dripstone Tour was... More

I wish I took the longer, more expensive tour. This cavern offers several different type of tours that's closed in the off season. Wish I could go back!
