Now that the nice weather is returning, it is time to start thinking about trips in the outdoors. One of our favorite local outdoor recreations is the War Eagle Cavern.
The cave just reopened for the 2013 season. War Eagle Cavern has a stunning natural entrance that makes you think of the kind of place where a mythical creature would keep its treasure. Located on the shores of Beaver Lake about one-half mile off Highway 12, it is about 30 minutes from our bed and breakfast in Eureka Springs.
There are no stairs or tight passages, only wide walkways that are stroller and pet friendly. There are also 60 minute guided walking tours. The daily hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

As Long as You’re at War Eagle…
We recommend you stop at the War Eagle Mill. About 4 miles Southwest from the Cavern, the historical War Eagle Mill is a water-powered grist mill on the War Eagle River, where they still produce fresh wholegrain cornmeal, flours, mixes and cereals. There is a gift shop and a tasty restaurant. If you go to War Eagle Cavern then make sure you also stop here! The mill, gift shop and restaurant are open every day from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. We think heading to the Cavern after breakfast at the B&B and then getting lunch at the Bean Palace Restaurant at the War Eagle Mill is an excellent way to spend a day in the Ozarks!
