Mystic Caverns

341 Caverns Drive
Harrison, AR 72601


Mystic Caverns is a commercially operated show cave located on the Newton County and Boone County line in North-Central Arkansas. It is near Marble Falls, AR and 8 miles south of Harrison, AR.

This region of the Ozark Mountains is believed to have been settled in the 1830’s. Marble Falls was at that time the community of Wilcockson, which boasted a large population in the late 1800’s.

In 1981 Dogpatch sold the caves to a local businessman and Bruce Raney, the son of Albert Raney, Jr., managed the caves. It reopened as Mystic Caverns. During 1981, the Crystal Dome project was completed and opened in August.

Omni Properties, Inc. bought Mystic Caverns and Crystal Dome in 1984 and hired Burt Allen to manage the property.

Steven Rush purchased Mystic Caverns and Crystal in March 1988. The caves were managed by Jennifer Updegraff, Steven Rush and Marcia Johnson.

On June 1, 1997 Steven Rush sold the Mystic Caverns and Crystal Dome business to Mystic Caverns, Inc. and leased them the property. The caves are currently managed by Steven and Brenda Rush.
