    I did the Wild Care tour! It was GREAT! It was challenging and very informative. I had done the public tour a few years back and decide to go on the Wild Cave tour! Lots of fun and physically challenging. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, helpful and very good helping people on the tour. I highly recommend it, be prepared for a work out!

    My wife and I took 2 ten year olds into this cavern. It was our fourth and last cave for the weekend, turns out that we saved the best for last. This tour was amazing! We went on the Discovery Tour, which is approximately 2 hours long, and is designed to provide a learning experience, on par with the visceral experience you receive. There were several jaw-dropping views along the tour, and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, and entertaining. This was our favorite tour of the weekend, though there were a few moments that we felt slightly rushed…though it is completely understandable that they had to stick to a schedule.

    This is always a wonderful experience. The guides are normally entertaining and friendly, and the site is always very clean and nice. Would recommend this to any of my friends, no matter where they are from. It is more than just the employees and the building, the cave itself is breath-taking in a way that I don’t think can really be explained – rather, must be experienced.

    Managed by the U.S. Forest Service, Blanchard Springs Caverns provides show cave tourists the ultimate cave viewing experience. I visited the cave with my 3 school age sons. We took two guided tours and had more fun than I can describe. Our mature Asian guide, Frank, was superb in knowledge, humor, cave insights and attentiveness to his guests. He was assisted by two other competent personnel. We were fortunate that both of our tour groups were small.The high quality standards of USFS are evident everywhere, from the visitor center facilities to the pathways, guardrails, lighting and cave preservation. I am glad for the experience as it shows that the U.S. government can get things right, when politics are not much involved.My educated guess is that this is probably one of the most beautiful and fascinating caves in North America. Here one sees formations undamaged by vandalism, tourist incursions or muddy water flows. One must take both of the guided tours to appreciate the extent of the awesome beauty, as the experiences on each tour are distinct. Granted, one must be physically fit to enjoy the longer tour, as there are many stairs. Still, older folks, or people with young children, need not despair because the shorter tour in the upper cave (the Dripstone Trail) is more majestic and feature-rich than the longer, but intriguing, Discovery Trail tour.In sum, it is difficult to imagine a more satisfying cave touring experience.

    I rated this cavern a 0 because I never got to go inside. Drove two and a half hours one way to get there. Upon arrival we were asked if we had been in any other caves or caverns in the past ten years. Were we wearing the same shoes? Did I take my camera in any other caves in the last ten years? We had been in another Arkansas cave earlier that day so the answer was yes. Were told we could not take our camera in the cavern due to a bat disease. Ok, so I leave my camera outside. What about my clothes? I’m pretty sure my clothes went the same places that my camera did! The pathetic part of all of this is nothing was mentioned in the brochure, or anywhere else, not even on the website. Very poorly handled. I wonder how many people they turn away each day? Not a good way to fund your cavern.
