  • We visited this site after dinner at the Alamo Springs Café. There were state park personnel to tell us about the park and about the bat cave. An awesome view and a relaxing place to visit.  more »

  • It was a great experience. Going to the bottom section was great and the biologist is very informative. The trails around the park are what close at 5pm. The top section is open every day at all times and the bottom section is open Thursday - Sunday for the emergence of the bats.
  • Fun experience to wait until the bats flew out of the cave at dusk. We probably saw a million and it took about five minutes to get them all out. One time is enough.
  • Beautiful scenery. Bats didn't fly the night we were there but it was a nice place to see the sunset.
  • Very neat experience - the lower seating is well worth the $5, the presenter is better informed and the view is better.
  • Smallest state park in texas at only 13 acres, yet has one of the largest bat populations in North america. Go there in the evenings for their evening bat viewings
