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.

This was a super cool cave! I’ve been to a LOT of caves through the US and this one was one of the most interesting. It is a living cave and wonderful examples of flow stones, stalactites, stalagmites, cave straws, curtains, cave popcorn, etc. Our whole family had a great time! The Dripstone Tour was age and ability friendly. The tour guides were knowledgeable, funny, and thorough. Would definitely go again!
I absolutely love this place. I have spent a lot of time practicing long exposure shots on the springs waterfall and the mirror lake falls. The cave tours are informative and super beautiful. Totally worth checking out. The surround area is gorgeous and not a bad hike either. The campground was very well taken care of. I would love to camp out here some day.
