from Cosmic Caverns
Cosmic Cavern is one of Arkansas' hidden treasures. You will see 2 bottomless cave lakes during your 1hr and 15 minute tour. The first lake, South Lake, has had trout in it for nearly 50 years. Some trout have gone blind and most have lost their color. The bottom or end of these lakes has yet to be found.

Come see our newly discovered area "Silent Splendor." Silent Splendor has been hailed as a must see in Arkansas. Silent Splendor houses one of the longest soda straw formations in the Ozarks measuring over an incredible 9 feet!

Don't forget to bring your camera. In our Buddha Room we actually have a picture studio set up where our guides will take your family picture with your camera... no charge. This really makes a great personal souvenir.

Very nice place to stop on our rainy day! The cavern is cool and the bottomless lakes are totally rad. 😎 We brought our 6 year old and she had a blast! Put this on your list of to-do’s when in the area❤️

I took a two day trip to Branson and was looking for some things to do. I was so glad I put this on the list! Lisa was my tour guide & she was so fun!! Cave system is absolutely gorgeous! There is also another tour that goes even further than the regular tour but you need to make reservations in advance. It is for the super adventurous and sounded really cool! Although the tour we did was incredible! The gift shop is really neat and has some cool stuff too. Loved Lisa and the Cosmic Caverns!! You won't regret going that's for certain!

The cavern was dark and challenging. Pathways were narrow in areas with very tight passages. I wouldn't recommend it for people with health issues. The climb is steep. Formations were pretty good. The guide was animated while giving the history of the cavern and the current owner. I would have preferred more info about the formations.

"Not the Best"

Was a colorless, short, grinding walk (baby very low areas and awkward places to get through. Was very linear following a fault line crack so we had to backtrack many times over same path. Features are almost nonexistent with only a smattering of straws and damaged curtains etc. Gad two areas with pooled water. No areas open into a large interesting view. Overall I would put this at bottom of list compared to many other caves in this general area.

"Great tour!!"

Had an unplanned stop here while on vacation from Scotland, and had a great time! As soon as we walked in we felt welcome, all staff were extremely friendly, polite and genuine. The tour lasted 1h 15 mins and was very informative, but kept fun and interesting, we were not over loaded with info, or bored with in depth facts. Our guide Jan was FANTASTIC!!! She clearly loved her job, and her personality and passion really made the tour. Fun for all the family. The steps in and out of the cave are fine- literally 2 flights, nowhere near as bad as some make out, you don't need to be super fit. The cave is a little muddy as you would expect, so wear suitable footwear (not white trainers lol). Highly recommend making a visit. Thank you Jan!!
