Cosmic Cavern was discovered in 1845, but wasn'€™t developed until 1927. The cave features a 9 foot soda straw the longest known in the Ozarks, and two bottomless lakes. One of the lakes was discovered in 1993 in the "Silent Splendor" section which made national news. This was Arkansas’ most delicate discovery. Make sure to bring your camera! Gift Shop, Snacks, Picnic area and camping available.

This was a beautiful cave! Also, extensive, as it spanned a long, vertical distance. Excellent tour guide who was very friendly and knowledgable. The entry fee was reasonable, too. Highly recommended.

An interesting and fun tour. This one has several clear "lakes" inside. Very pretty and still being explored! They offer an adventure tour as well! It's for those with more agility and the fearless! Rope climbing involved. Real spelunking! The rare and delicate helictite formations can be found here! Cosmic cavern also has a gift shop, restrooms and a small... More

Cosmic Cavern is a scenic cave with a fine variety of formations. It is privately owned, and the owner has done a great job making it a worthwhile, rewarding experience. We visited the cave on a hot August day, making the 60 degree in-cave temperature quite refreshing. We have visited quite a few caves in quite a few states, including... More

My husband and I LOVE going to different caverns, and caves. We enjoyed this tour but felt that the tour guide dragged the tour out. Enjoyed the fact the the tour group was small. This tour is very expensive. It cost the two of us $29.00. Felt it wasn't worth that .

It's not often we travel through privately owned caverns, and this one was incredible. Our guide Jo was full of information and stories about the cavern past and present, and made the tour quite enjoyable.

Cosmic Cavern was recommended to us by someone as a place to visit. Enjoyed the experience. Caves/caverns are great to visit on a hot September day in AR. The cavern is always about 60 degrees. This cavern is privately owned and on a fault line. It is neat to learn things about this cave. It is done well and has... More

Husband and I took 12 yr old and 7 yr old. It was a big hit with our family. Loved to hear the tour guide's history lesson of the property, geology of what we were looking at, and appreciated the rustic amenities. Too often these natural wonders are "over safetyfied" and lose the integrity of what they were showcasing. We... More

Thanks for the great response. That is one of the best written reviews we’ve had and I totally agree with the oversafetyfication of so many places, especially government caves. We do make sure all walkways and everything in the cave is safe for all and constantly work to improve the trails and lighting. Keep checking on us. We like the... More
