This is a wonderful place to camp out at and enjoy the great outdoors. A small group of us camped there in October and had a great time. Plenty of field to pitch your tent and a large fire ring for the evening campfire. You could put a hundred tents and still have room for more. There is also a... More

This is an authentic cave and not a fancy tour attraction. we enjoyed the rural surroundings. We were told the history of the property and walked down some steps to the cave. The cave is underground and you walk thru some mud and puddles so wear proper shoes. Our tour guide told us the history of the cave and the... More

My children and I visited Cascade Caverns recently and we were amazed. The cave is extremely active (meaning the formations are still growing) and is very wet. It's also a nice touch that it is a relatively dark cave (instead, you're given flashlights). There are literally thousands of small stalactites, a unique species of salamander and tiny bats. All in... More

I enjoy caves and have been to many,both big and small. This is one of the most unsual I've ever been in. It is very much a LIVING cave and the fetures inside are growing at an alarming rate. This is a privetly owned cave and the staff realy love their work which makes for an above average tour. They... More

As a cave enthusiast and relatively new to this area, I've been checking out all the local show caves. I finally got to my way out to Boerne to see Cascade Caverns. I have to say, that yes, the park and it's buildings are older but I also kept in mind that I wasn't going to Disney World - I... More

Looking for something to do on a weekday, we decided to visit Cascade Caverns. It was kinda difficult to find it coming up Hwy 46 as you have to circle all the way around to the left in town then figure out which road to turn off onto to get to the caves so double check your directions if you...

I have been visiting this beautiful cave in the Hill Country between Boerne & San Antonio for over 60 yrs. (was even given my first kiss on a school field trip when the lights were turned out to show how dark it is)! Went spelunking down a vertical tunnel-ladder in the middle of a pool of water in the back... More

We went during spring break for the 3pm tour with 4 adults and 4 kids ages 5-8. We were a little wary of how difficult it would be for our little ones to hike plus we had one adult with bad knees and myself with claustrophobia. However, it worked out great and everyone loved it. The stairs were only at... More

Not a great subject title I know but I didn't know how to describe it. So of course being 120 feet underground in a centuries old cave system is AMAZING but the place is just really run down and doesn't seem to be well maintained. When you guy your tickets you will be told a tour time. For us that... More

Yes, the subject title is unfair. Please take a look at the photos on TripAdvisor and judge for yourself. We don't have a Disney World budget -- no Texas show cave does -- but we put every penny back into the business. Like most other Texas caves attractions, we run our tours every hour on the hour. These tour times... More

I have been to cascade caverns 4 times when visitors are in town. Each time we get a personal guided tour due to going during the week and early. So you feel like you have the cavern to yourself and the guides are always very knowledgeable. It's not the biggest cavern which is perfect for a quick trip, but the... More
