Blanchard Springs Caverns

Friends were visiting the U.S. while we were spending the summer close by at Heber Springs, so the four of us took the 1 hour walking tour. This was one of the most beautiful and easy access caverns we have been in. Our guide was awesome and the walk was easy. We recommend the tour to couples and families.

Blanchard Springs Caverns

It is a three-level cavern system. The three different levels feature the DripStone, Discovery, and Wild Cave tours. The Wild Cave tour is where you go spelunking on a guided tour. It has various cave rooms, full gift shop, a video of the history of the caverns, and is loads of fun.

Blanchard Springs Caverns, which is run by the US Forest Service, has walking tours through many rooms with well-preserved formations. The crawling, scuttling Wild Cave tour lasts 3-4 hours and will leave muscles aching you didn't even know you had.
