Man and Nature Came together very, very beautifully for this attraction. Nature provided the scintillating crystal formations, and man provided the light and sound show and the concrete infrastructure needed to appreciate them. Spelunking was one of the Ozark’s first tourist draws, and this cave, which has been in operation for over a hundred years. You have to go down more than 200 steps to see the formations. On the tour itself, you’ll be educated on the history of both the attraction and the geological forces that formed it.
Now, you can do much more than just visit the caves though. If you feel like shelling out the cash, get a bag of ‘mining rough’ from the gift shop at the mouth of cave, and from there on, head over to the sluicing trough, and learn how gems are mined.
There are also four different walking trails nearby, from easy to hard, all of which last less than an hour, and will take you by sights such as the Springhouse, the Lookout Tower, and the Waterfalls.
And finally, for a little extra cash, there’s mini-golf.

Talking Rocks Cavern Reviews & Ratings
Very cool experience. Our tour guide was Kenny and he was very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. Be ready for some steep steps. Nice bathrooms facility. Nice small mini golf, the kids enjoyed the box mazes. Great little gift shop.
Very cool cave. The columns and formations were pretty great for this size cave. I've been to quite a few, and was impressed. Our guide Chuck was informative and engaging with our kiddos. The shop was nice and the addition of the climbing and playground area was very appreciated for the little ones. Definitely recommend.
This place is incredible, starting from the staff all the way to the bottom of the cave. We got checked in by Kenny who was genuinely personable and full of energy. We took our tour led by Shylee, who was funny and informative. She made the tour much more fun. The sites are breath taking. So majestically beautiful. I can't express enough how much I enjoyed the tour. And then there are the gift shop and the walking trails. The shop gives you plenty of options for gifting and remembrances. And the hiking trails have 4 different options for exploring the magnificent forest surrounding the property. An over all truly wonderful experience.
This was a great cave tour with a very knowledgeable guide. You will decend about 100 feet into the depth of the cave and spend about an hour enjoying its beauty. This is my favorite thus far in my cave experiences. It is not for the obese as there are narrow passages to go through. There are over 200 stair steps and it is very damp in there. It was very wet when we went in, from recent rains. The gift shop is large and well stocked and there are two nature trails outside the cave, which are free for your enjoyment. One is about a 30 minute hike and the other about an hour. Talking Rocks Cavern is a great place for kids to have their first cave adventure and great for adults as well. I recommend it.
This was the first cavern of any type I had personally ever been to. This was one of three caverns my family visited on our trip to Branson and it was our favorite, Kenny was awesome at answering all of my kids questions. We all learned a lot about caverns and will definitely be coming back to this one the next time we visit Branson. They have some shorter paths you can walk on before or after so the kids can get their wiggles out along with a tower you can go up.
