How far in is the waterfall room in Blowing Cave?
The waterfall room deep inside Blowing Cave is a sight to behold. It's also not easy to get there. About one-third of the way through the cave, you'll find a room that opens up to reveal the stunning underground waterfall. But about halfway to the waterfall room, you'll encounter the Potato Masher - a section that collapsed sometime in the past creating a very narrow section you must crawl through in order to continue your trek to the waterfall room. Many claustrophobic-inducing tight spaces and plenty of mud stand in your way of reaching this legendary waterfall.

Cosmic Cavern is the largest cave in Arkansas that is open to the public. One of its main features is a stunning 9-foot soda straw formation. Also, be sure to check out the two bottomless underground lakes in the cave. Especially the South Lake which is filled with trout that have been there for over 50 years.
