6386 Highway 21 North
Berryville, AR 72616
Cosmic Cavern is Arkansas’s largest privately owned show cave. The cave is a steady 64 degrees, so it is the perfect temperature no matter when you choose to visit! The cave features a 9 foot soda straw, the longest known in the Ozarks, and 2 bottomless cave lakes. The first lake, South Lake, has had trout in it for nearly 50 years. Some of the trout have gone blind and most have lost their color. One of the lakes was discovered in 1993 and made national news. It is so pristine and untouched that many of the beautiful formations are transparent. The bottom or end of these lakes has yet to be found. This area, “Silent Splendor” is hailed as a must see attraction in Arkansas.
