Blanchard Springs Caverns

Blanchard Springs Caverns, in the town of Fifty-Six, offers several subterranean trips and guided tours. The caverns stay at a nice, constant 58 degrees every day of the year, so visitors can admire the incredible rock formations regardless of the weather.

Take guided walking tours through an active cavern system, featuring sparkling calcite formations, stalactites, stalagmites and columns. There are two different trails for viewing and a Wild Cave Tour. Ranked among the 10 most outstanding in North America, it’s the only developed cave system operated by the U.S. Forest Service. Open all year, with a restricted tour schedule during the winter months. The Visitor Center has a gift shop, books, maps, and educational material.
