Blanchard Springs Caverns, Fifty Six

4.9
#1 of 85 in Nature in Arkansas
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.

  • We had a great time going through the cave. Everyone that worked there was informative and friendly. A great place to spend some time out of the heat. We really appreciated how they are really doing all they can to preserve the caves temperature and protecting bats from white-nose syndrome. Definitely check out the cave.
  • The caverns were beautiful and the tour was great. Our guide Destiny was awesome. She was funny, very knowledgeable and great with kids. You could tell she loves caves. We also explored the waterfall and it was great too. We swam at the pooled water under the falls I would recommend taking shoes, the rock bottom was extremely slippery and and sharp.
