Hurricane River Caverns : A hidden Ozark treasure for Extreme Adventure addicts, is located between Harrison, and Marshall, Arkansas: a half hour either way; one hour from Eureka Springs, two and a half hours from Little Rock, and three hours from Hot Springs; and only one hour from Branson, Missouri. 


We are also, conveniently, only about 15 minutes away from the pristine Buffalo National River.

Exploring the natural wonders of Hurricane River Caverns, deep in the Ozark mountains, is an excellent way to spend quality time with your family and loved ones. Hurricane River Caverns offers you the time of your life, with a choice of four different tours: our regular self-guided cave tour, and three guided, extreme cave tours. All of these tours are available at our discretion, with a signed liability waiver.

These cave tours, follow the serpentine eroded passageways of an ancient underground aquifer; which today, is called the Hurricane Branch, which winds up in the Buffalo National River: our most famous local attraction. Awe-inspiring cave formations, and fantastic eroded rock patterns, will greet you inside the cavern.

Our extreme guided cave tours are: the " Deep North ", the " East Passage ", and the " Mill Creek " extreme tours. These cave tours, are very popular for extreme adventure lovers, because they include any combination of the following challenges: vertical climbs, sliding, stumbling, contortionist positions, sticky gooey clay, irregular terrain, tight squeezes, short swims, and disconcerting ravine crossings etc. These extreme cave tours will undoubtedly test your courage, and endurance; and are not for the faint of heart, or the claustrophobic.

The wild tours we provide, are guided by highly trained, and knowledgeable tour guides. We also provide equipment such as caving helmets, headlamps, knee pads, and gloves, to ensure the safety of our wild cavers.

It bears repeating, that our cave tours, are easily accessible for anyone vacationing in Little Rock, Hot Springs, or Eureka Springs, Harrison and Marshall, Arkansas; and in Branson, Missouri.

 What a better way to spice up an otherwise dull weekend, than to explore the beauty of Hurricane River Caverns.  Look us up on Facebook, under "Hurricane River Cave", for lot's of exciting posts. We look forward to meeting you.

"Robert "Roby" Szlemko, owner of Hurricane River Caverns, passed away unexpectedly on June 12, 2015. Visitors to the cave always enjoyed his magic tricks and engaging conversation. He is, and will be, greatly missed by all.
