Guided Tours of Arkansas’ only Lakeside Cavern


The spectacular natural entrance of War Eagle Cavern sits in a boxed canyon on the edge of Beaver Lake.

Traditional Cavern Tours

Friendly expert guides will lead visitors on the easy, wide open pathway along the edges of the stream that flows throughout the cavern. The path on this breathtaking adventure wanders throughout huge rooms while the guide explains the incredible “domes” and other formations located in the first half-mile of this huge cavern. Our resident bats and salamanders have also been known to make appearances during the tour.  After the tour enjoy our pristine walking trails and scenic lake views as you make your way back to our gift shop.  The cavern stays at a constant 58 degrees year-round, is stroller accessible, and pet friendly making it the perfect adventure for the entire family. Tours leave about every 20 minutes each day throughout the season. The Last tour leaves one hour before closing.

2 Person Minimum.
