Two very easy hikes to do following the tour of Blanchard Springs Caverns. To Blanchard Springs Falls, is a boardwalked hike, less than a 1/2 mile. To Mirror Lake is about 2 miles round trip, the lake and falls are very picturesque.

A wonderful place to spend some time. The caverns are well done and beautiful. Within the area is a beautiful, crystal clear swimming area that is awesome for kids.

It was beautiful here, seriously. Moss everywhere, lovely waterfall, perfectly clear water, and little crinoid stem impressions in rocks. It really was wonderful. Also, fun to climb around.

We didn't camp. However, all of the Blanchard Springs cabins were rented and we had to stay outside the park. I suggest reserving a campsite to ensure you have one.

Sylamore creek is a great place to paddle around in a kayak but I would steer clear of the White River because the current is pretty swift there.
