Went to the caverns in Aug. 2017. This is a real hidden gem. Take the day to visit the swimming area, fishing, and of course the cavern tours. We took the Discovery Trail tour and the Dripstone Tour. Be sure to use your national Park...More

I love visiting Blanchard Springs caverns every few years. The breathtaking beauty, the amazing LIVING cave (very few caves accessible to the public are truly "living"), and very knowledgable guides make this an EXCELLENT destination or trip stop. Particularly amazing is the cool, consistent, year-round...More

I did the Dripstone Trail because I was on a somewhat tight schedule. I guess they only offer the Discovery Trail in the summer. Charlie was our guide and he was fantastic! He answered lots of questions, was full of interesting fun facts, and had...More

we decided on the longer tour, and it wasn't all it could have been, we felt rushed thru the cave, wasn't ample time to take pictures of what we wanted pictures of, they gave photo opps but it seemed like where they wanted you to...More

Visitor center is beautiful, nice gift shop. We bought tickets online so there was no wait when we arrived. Take an elevator down to the caverns. Dripstone tour was an hour and gorgeous. The guide was informative and fun!

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.
