At Longhorn Caverns State Park, taking time to explore nature and its breathtaking views can prove quite exhilarating. Not only do visitors have an option to explore the caves below, but also they have the opportunity to walk on the trails above and visit the nearby Inks Lake State Park. Also, young and aspiring geologists may choose a walking tour with a geologist expert  leading a trip while giving a lecture.

Also, the photography program allows the public to reserve a limited place for the most scenic cave area excursion. This small group tour lasts three hours, and photographers, or anyone else interested in photographing these magnificent scenes, must contact special coordinators to reserve their limited spots.

If visitors dare not fear dirt and grime, then a more in depth tour remains open to the public. This three hour adventure, aptly named the Wild Cave Tour, challenges tourists with tight spaces, rough terrain climbing, and underdeveloped cave parts that require using safety equipment.

Although the caverns maintain an almost perfect 68℉ year round temperature, still the park does not allow visitor camping within the cavern’s cool walls. Nevertheless, the option to camp out in the nearby Inks Lake State Park stays available for recreational vehicles (RVs), tents, and primitive rental cabins. Picnicking above ground before or after a tour comes highly recommended by both visitors and park staff.

With easy accessibility, the Longhorn Caverns State Park locates merely a mile and a half outside of Austin. An opportune visit at this wonderful park allows a break from technology to connect with nature, a practice necessary for experiencing tranquility and relaxation.

Visit Longhorn Caverns State Park soon. A truly serene and peaceful area!
