Cave Geologic Formation
A natural limestone bridge leads into caves at Natural Bridge Caverns. The cavity houses the largest commercial caves in the United States--viewed as a living cave system because of the active growth of formations. Prior to opening to the public, the cave revealed evidence of ancient human remains dating back to 5,000 BCE. The caverns are part of a drive-through safari park, Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch.

  • We really enjoyed taking the Discovery Tour. The caverns were large and impressive and well worth seeing. The guide was friendly. The only thing we didn't like was that they take a picture of each group at the end and then offer it for sale. It was low pressure so I didn't take a star off, but it does cause a line and a couple of minute delay at the end of the tour.
  • This place was amazing. The cool air and the water on the feet felt great in the Texas heat. The guide was knowledgeable enough to answer questions and provided time for people to actually look and enjoy instead of just rushing us threw. They had a fountain that let you taste the fresh water.
  • Such an amazing place to bring the entire family. Discovery Cave was very beautiful and easier to hike, but the Hidden Cave was even more amazing if you are comfortable with lots of slippery stairs and an unreal humidity. Would definitely go again!
  • We were traveling with our dog and on a whim I called to ask if they could accommodate him. I was very surprised that they did. It was before we could check into our hotel. He was caged, outside with sahde, with a fan on him while we took the discovery tour. The actual tour was great. We had an enthusiastic tour guide. I was traveling with my father, husband, and daughter. We all enjoyed ourselves.
  • Wow! What a fun excursion. I have been to Carlsbad Caverns so I "knew what to expect". Ha! This much smaller cavern is what my husband deemed a Resort Cavern. So much thought and care had been invested in the guest's experience. Nearly every step boasted a hand rail. The walking surface, though steep at times, was coated in a material that allowed ample grip for those in athletic shoes. There was moisture on the path but I never slipped a single time. Our guide did an excellent job keeping guests organized and providing information. We chose the 75 minute Discovery Tour. We highly recommend this tour. Fun half day spent at the venue.
