  • There is no admission to the park, so as we were leaving Inks lake, we stopped for the views at the overlook. With a cool breeze and great vistas, a wonderful place for lunch.  more »
  • There is a fee to tour the cavern. It is a little more than the normal fee for a State Park, but completely worth it! There are options on the type of cavern tour to take, and we opted for the regular...  more »
  • Coming in October is a great time to visit. I had the trails to myself, it was quiet and peaceful. It you get a chance, climb to the top of the observation tower, the view is gorgeous. The cavern tour...  more »

  • This is a gorgeous place, both above and below ground. The guided tours are a bit expensive for the whole family, but very well worth it. If you're a shutterbug, definitely remember your camera. Our guide pulled aside a couple of us who were snapping away and showed us some cool stuff he didn't show the rest of the group so we'd get some special shots. The tour is also a great way to escape the summer heat, as the cave is 68 degrees, but be careful if you're claustrophobic, as a couple of areas you walk through are low and narrow.
  • Visited the cavern on Weekend in July. $16 ticket for a guided tour in group. Self-paced tour is not allowed. It is a good place to escape heat in summer. In a group more than 20 people does not guarantee enough care. Well it is almost the same for all caverns. cool, humid but nothing fancy.
  • An interesting not state run park. The caverns include a nice walking tour that last 1 1/2 hours which includes a lot of very interesting facts. The caves are a little different as they are flow caverns and lack stalagmite and tires but has interesting rock formations none the less. The trails are a little short so if a serious hiker maybe try somewhere else. Very nice in spring with a large variety of Texas wild flowers.
  • Awesome caverns to tour! Great viewpoint of the castle in the old lookout tower. Friendly camp host! Must see! Love historical places.
  • Really cool caves and old buildings! Our guide was a very funny guy with a lot of knowledge. He made the tour amazing. This cave have a really interesting history, I totally recommend it!
