I had a really enjoyable time on tour last saturday! It was my first visit to Cascade Caverns although I have been to some Texas caves before. The tour guide was really nice and knowledgable, she made sure to answer questions that people on the tour had. As someone who has done some spelunking before I wasn't sure what to... More

I visited cascade caverns with my husband at the beginning of 2016. The surrounding area is beautiful, and you have to go slow when you arrive because of all the deer standing about. The cave itself if far more interesting than others in the area and it feels the most like an actual cave. We saw lots of adorable baby... More

We camped in a 24 foot travel trailer, in site A1, for two nights in December. The campground was very quiet, except for the noises from the livestock that roamed freely about on the neighboring property. There were signs along the lengthy entrance to the grounds that cautioned us about “loose livestock.” We saw horses, cows, donkeys, and tons of... More

Dear Kristie- Just a few comments about your review: 1) Our eastern neighbor has some cattle (Angus mostly) but they are behind a fence which is at least a couple thousand feet from our campground not to mention there are cattle guards/traps along the road. Deer roam freely on our property but NOT cows, donkeys or horses. 2) Every site... More

me and some family visited the cave around the end of July 2015 and at first glance everything seemed great but when we went to get tickets for the tour the staff was a bit rude and the man who sold us tickets was very disrespectful then we got ready to go on tour when we met up with our... More

Dear Ken- We inform every tour-goer of three things before the tour (these "advisories" are also listed in our hardcopy brochure and on our website): 1) 120 stairs up and down to get to and from the cave entrance (see brochure & website); 2) There is a 30-foot stretch in the Lake Room where tour-goers must crouch down to pass...

The cave was flooded (it's rained a LOT in this section of Texas). But we enjoyed camping here. Friendly management. No major puddles (some campgrounds are closed due to rains). Good showers. Wifi is strong. Receive quite a few TV channels on antenna. Nice hiking once the sun came out.

This cavern was a lot of fun. We went early on a Friday to avoid the crowds and had a great time. We had to use flashlights because the electrical lights were out due to the Memorial Weekend flooding. Our tour guide was very informative and funny. We highly recommend it.

I haven't done caverns and caves. So Cascade Caverns is my first. At first ,it's scary as it is dark but when your eyes get acclimated then there is the ooohs and aaaaahs ,as this is incredibly awesome. I never thought this exist and it's underground.

If you are looking for a cave to take the little kids with the cool light show and neat formations, THIS IS NOT IT. However, if you want to see a cave like it was before electricity and one that is frankly still alive for the majority of it, go here. The appearance of the gift shop/ticketcounter/pool hall is a...

I have three comments about this review: 1) FORMATIONS: We have a number of interesting formations but you have to look for them on the walls (most are stalactites). The Giant Molar, Tobacco Room, Travertine Dam, Twin Sisters, Wedding Dress,etc. are just a few of the notable formations. The Peep in the Deep is one of the most spectacular cave... More

I was part of this morning's Adventure Tour, a once-per-month $50 tour down to and through the muddy lower level of Cascade Caverns. What an awesome, memorable experience. I doubt I'll ever forget it. And since there's only one other review on here that tackles this specific tour, I'll explain it a bit for those who are interested. First things... More
