  • Quite literally in the middle of nowhere, this is a hidden Texas gem. It lies off back roads off Interstate 10 about 180 miles west of San Antonio and well worth the trip. The visitor center is somewh...  more »
  • We toured this unique cavern. Fantastic formations. We camped in the campground. Water, electricity and a bath house. Deer, armadillo and peacock all around. Our dog loved the area. It's about 5 miles...  more »
  • Amazing place to see. I took the guided tour with only two others and still had a great experience. Obviously a must see when you're near Sonora. Even the animals outside to the caverns are enjoyable....  more »

  • Really incredible caves! It's super warm inside- even year round you're talking about 85°F and 100% humidity- so shorts and shirts recommended. Slip resistant shoes because it's an active cave and the walk ways are slippery. You can't take any water in with you so you need to drink a lot of water before you go in. You will sweat it all out over the next two hours you're down in the caverns. The tour guides are all great and the gift shop is well stocked. It's not a bad drive from San Angelo for a day trip.
  • This is by far my favorite show cave in Texas! It is a trek from any populated corner of the state and is literally in the middle of nowhere, but if you are headed out on I-10, the signage to get you there is pretty reliable. The tour itself was a bit on the pricier side of most show cave tours, but not exorbitantly so. $20 for two hours to see a jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, wow-factor subterranean showcase, to me is well worth every penny! Literally, everywhere you look is just incredible! And some of the rarest and most breathtaking formations that I have seen on any cave tour (I am a huge cave nerd and amateur speleologist). It was the home of the famous "butterfly" formation, but some jerk broke off one of the "wings" and of course ruined it for everyone. You can still appreciate the extreme rarity of the formation though. We had a very interactive guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. If you have been on show cave tours before, there is a lot of the same explanations of cave formations and a demonstration of total darkness, but you will not be bored, trust me! The quantity of pillars here is mind-blowing as well! The gift shop was very nice (I collect amber and they had some very reasonably priced pieces) and they have peacocks behind the shop that are docile. Definitely worth a stop whether passing through or as a destination!
  • We were passing by traveling back home we stopped because we saw some signs.. the best decision we ever did.. the gift shop was so cool.. our guide (something with the A...Allen, Andy) he was awesome gave us a lot of information about the caverns.. we had a good time. I will highly recommended to everybody..
  • Great experience! Excellent tour guide - he was knowledgeable as well as amusing. The cave is beautiful and you get to be very up close to everything! The area around the cavern is also a plus - it is filled with chirping birds and peacocks. I plan on returning to do the adventure tour one day soon hopefully!
  • Really nice cave. I'm a geologist and stopped here for the night with our travel trailer as the half way point on our family vacation. We arrived late at night and just paid for camping in the morning. Tent sites available too. We managed to take the 1hr 45 min tour with our 7 month old twin girls and our 3 yr old son. It is hot and humid down there, they aren't kidding but it's not unbearable. Worth the price of admission (a Jackson per person) and the gift shop is pretty huge. Very friendly and laid back and great with kids. Will definitely stop here on our I-10 travels in the future.
