  1. Cosmic Cavern is the largest privately owned cavern in Arkansas that is open to the public.  Inside Cosmic Cavern, you’ll experience a cool and comfortable 64 degrees throughout the year. Inside the cave, the top features include a 9-foot soda straw, which is the longest one known of in the Ozarks, along with 2 bottomless cave lakes.  One of the lakes, South Lake, has had trout in it for at least 50 years, and some of them have gone blind and lost their color.  It’s truly a fascinating phenomenon and just another natural wonder of these Eureka Springs caverns! The other lake, nicknamed “silent splendor,” was discovered in 1993 and is so incredibly pristine and clear. It’s truly a sight to behold! Cosmic Cavern is also considered to be one of the prettiest cave systems in the state.
  2. Onyx Cave was first discovered in 1981. It holds the distinction of being the oldest show cave open to the public in the state. As you enter this underground world, you’ll be guided by a self-guided audio tour that tells you all about the various chambers and rock formations you’ll encounter.  This cavern is a bit cooler, staying at a constant average of 50 degrees year-round.
  3. Finally, head to War Eagle Cavern. This beautiful cave is the largest cavern in Northwest Arkansas. It includes three incredible stories of caves and over 4 miles of a pathway to explore. As you meander through the caves, you’ll pass along the shores of a stream that flows through the cavern, listen to tales of warriors, robbers, and others who used the cave over the years and enjoy an interesting glimpse into the world of Eureka Springs caverns.  This cave stays an average of 58 degrees throughout the year.
