Cosmic Cavern Tour in Berryville Arkansas

Cosmic Cavern Tour in Berryville Arkansas

Come see why Cosmic Cavern in the Ozark Mountains has been named one of the top 10 show caves in the United States. This tour will amaze young and old alike, viewing two underground bottomless lakes - one with cave trout.

As you journey along safety-inspected walkways, you will see many unique and beautiful formations. On the tour, you will witness stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones, sodastraws, helictites, cave bacon, draperies, and many other speleothems.

In addition to the awesome cave formations, you will get a chance to see a rare and threatened salamander - the Ozark Blind Cave Salamander. Also, witness South Lake - the home of blind "cave trout" which have lived in the cave for many years. Don't forget to ask why the bat population is just now returning after 70 years of absence!

Description

Tour Highlights:

  • See 2 bottomless cave lakes. 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 have yet to be found!
  • See the newly discovered "Silent Splendor" area. 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 an incredible 9 feet plus!
  • Try your hand at Gem Stone Panning. Use an authentic sluice to pan for gems still in the rough. Find a large variety of gems including Amethyst, Fluorite, Apache Tear, Peacock Ore, Calcite, Lodestone, Copper, Talc, Pumice, Citrine, Garnet in Matrix, Optical Calcite, Fuchsite, Sulphur, Ulexite, Fool's Gold, Geode, Rose Quartz, and Chalcopyrite. Keep what you find for a small additional fee payable onsite.

Special Notes:

  • No backpacks or large purses are allowed in the cave. This is to keep damage from being done to the formations, as you are so up-close-and-personal to them.
  • Bring your camera.
  • Coats and jackets are NOT needed, 64 degrees and 96% humidity, so it feels warmer than it is.
  • Cavern is closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
