Blanchard Springs Caverns

Ozark Mountains

The spectacular Blanchard Springs Caverns, 15 miles northwest of Mountain View, were carved by an underground river. It's a little-known, mind-blowing spot in Arkansas. Guided tours range from accessible-travel to adventurous three- to four-hour spelunking sessions. The caverns maintain seasonal hours, but usually open at 9:30am and close around sunset.
