A couple of weeks ago, my family and I decided to take a day trip to see some caves. We stopped at Cascade Caverns first. Pulling in, it seemed like a nice RV park. But once we got closer, we really got a good look at it. First thing we saw was 'Rex', their giant novelty T-Rex in the middle... More

This is probably the most BOGUS, UNFAIR & UNTRUE review ever posted about our business, especially since this reviewer has never done a review on TripAdvisor before this one. There are multiple red flags here. I have posted recent photos of Rex, the gift shop, bathrooms and hand rails so you can see for yourself. Here are my comments by... 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

So glad we visited the caverns. I'm a little claustrophobic and not quite sure about going in the caverns. Jeremy, tour guide, assured me that if you can ride an elevator you will be comfortable in the caverns. He was spot on! It wasn't an issue and loved every minute. He explained so much about the caverns and answered all... More

Granted we went in a very rainy day, but keep n mind the stone steps can be very slippery and there many puddles inside. Wear shoes with good treads. Also, anyone with lung issues should be aware of reduced oxygen but Jeremy was quite knowledgeable and the caverns were fascinating.

It was interesting and our tour guide was nice. The campground seemed fine. However, for $5 more in admission price, the Natural Bridge Caverns were much more spectacular.

Cascade Caverns is the most alive (95%+ active) and has the most fantastic solution domes of the seven (7) Texas show caves. It also is the oldest living Texas cave attraction (opened in 1932) and has the most interesting biodiversity (e.g. Salamanders), fossil record and human history. The Cathedral Room and Peep in the Deep entrance are spectacular. Cascade also... More

We recently visited your campgrounds with our friends and grandchildren. All we can say is WOW!! What a wonderful experience.We loved the caverns. It was unique to go 100 ft. underground. We purchased the kids cave helmets in your gift shop which they loved wearing with the lights. The young man named Jeremy really made it special being so knowledgeable... More
