Most beautiful cavern I’ve ever been to. Our guide was Dale and he was excellent- informative, enthusiastic, great with the kids. The formations in the caverns are so beautiful and we learned a lot! Blanchard Springs was gorgeous. Definitely a must see!

By all means, stop in and visit this beautiful natural living cave. Guide tours are done daily. Many very large room to look at, beautiful flowing rock fountains and a cool 59 degrees yearly temperature, great to visit on a hot summer day

Friendly staff and beautiful scenery. Slick surface but side rails on much of the walk. Great fun for all family members. Has a Christmas program that I have heard is great but haven't had time to do it. It requires reservations.

I would certainly not take small children on the longer tour. It is over an hour long and there are dangerous areas where they need constant supervision. I would recommend the dripstone tour at their ages.
