Cave Springs Cave Natural Area

Cave Springs Cave, Benton County, is basically a long "solution channel" formed by a groundwater fed stream. The stream is considered to be an outstanding example of an Ozark Mountains cave stream and hosts the largest known population of the rare Ozark cavefish. It has also harbored a summer maternity colony of gray bats. Rare plant species also occur on site including the Ozark trillium.

Hunting is prohibited on this natural area.

From State Highway 112/264 junction on the south side of the town of Cave Springs, proceed north about 0.25 mile to Midway Avenue. Turn right (east) and travel 0.25 mile to the northeast corner of the natural area. Park along roadside.
