Description

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.

We drove in from Branson for an afternoon thing to do. The entire tour takes about 1.5 hours, and you'll be with a group of about 15 or so. Compared to other US cave systems we've visited, this was a little less interesting. All of the mineral deposits are pretty uniform, so the formations are pretty monotonous and monochrome. But that just comes with the natural soil deposits and it is what it is. The tour guide advised us all that it would be "hot and humid" in the cave, so please no jackets... though she also said the average temp down there is 65-68 degrees F (which isn't hot to me!) and then she proceeded to put on her own denim jacket! Hmm.. The cave is privately owned, so clearly no OSHA, ADA, or other regulative safety enforcements! lol Lots of old stone steps and railings, little foot traction. Not that that was a huge turn off: just letting you know to be prepared with good footwear and to take your time to get your footing secure. Highlights: this was the first time I've ever been on the bottom-side of a huge fault line like that, and that was pretty cool. The underground lakes are lit up and really nice.

We were supposed to drive to the diamond crater but with rain had to come up with something new on our road trip. We saw this advertised at the Arkansas Visitor Center and decided to take the drive up there. It was absolutely worth it. the cave was a blast and is pet friendly (if your dog is willing). We had so much fun learning about and exploring this cave with our 9 y/o son and 14 y/o daughter. The only critique I have is that the guide was so excited and passionate about the cave she spoke way too quickly at times so we did lose a bit of what she had to say.

Great guide and good tour. Stairs are very steep so if someone has mobility issues it might be tough. Also some places are a tight squeeze so obese people probably wont enjoy it.

I live here locally and always take my out of town visitors to Cosmic. Despite having been here many times it never ceases to delight me. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I'm a fan of caves and have toured caves all over this country. This one won't disappoint.

We were lucky enough to just have us with a tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. The cave itself was spectacular and I enjoyed exploring it. The steps could be a bit treacherous, but she encouraged us to take our time going down them so we were able to navigate the cave safely. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area. Someday, I think I will return and try the wild tour. It sounds pretty hardcore, but she promised me that no one has ever died.
