We traveled from Colorado to Arkansas for the Scottish Festival and decided as a extra special day for my grandson I would take him to the caverns. Unfortunately the cavern was closed for repairs to one of the systems. Seeing our disappointment, Mr. McIntosh took us on a mini tour and we were elated. My grandson, Max was stunned. It... More

We were invited to visit this area by friends who took us on a short hike through the park. What views. Creeks fed by springs and beautiful lakes. Even an old mill to see. Words can't describe the natural beauty available too see at this park.

Absolutely stunning! I've been in other caverns but this is by far the best. Huge with beautiful formations. We went back at Christmas and watched Caroling in the Caverns which was fun also. Also, the area around it is lovely also.

Went on the Wild Cave Tour that took us off the regular path to see some awesome parts of the caves. FYI there is climbing, crawling, and some close-spaces. But nothing to hard. Worth every penny!

We learned about Blanchard Caverns from the Fairfield Bay Marina folks. They told us it was a "must see" and we are so glad we took their advice. What a treasure..it was amazing. Our tour was around an hour. Our Park Ranger for the tour was DJ and he did an exceptional job. We learned so much and it was... More

This was an awesome cave. We went on the one hour tour. All the kids (ages 6-15) enjoyed it. I would like to go on the longer tour sometime but it's only open part of the year (when the bats aren't hibernating).

I have never been in a cave before, this was breathtaking, I felt like a little kid. The tour guide was very knowable and kept us interested. I completely recommend this tour.
