If you find yourself trekking across Texas from San Antone toward El Paso, & find yourself tired of 'are we there yet?' ..... you owe it to yourself to take a delightful break to see the Caverns of Sonora! It's about 5 miles from the highway, has plenty of shade, with campgrounds available, too! Wear comfortable shoes & lite clothing.... More

We made our first visit to the caverns for the guided tour, and we were impressed with the entire experience. A few things to know in advance: 1. The cave is a very consistent 71 degrees throughout. 2. The humidity inside the cave is a very consistent 98%. Be prepared before beginning your tour by hydrating well, make a potty... More

I arrived at 2:40 on a Saturday afternoon and was told there would be no more tours that day. The camp grounds looked nice, the lady was pleasant, but I was really disappointed. Be sure to call first.

This cave is absolutely wonderful and should not be missed. There are all kinds of formations and it goes on and on. We must have walked two miles but it was worth it. The cave has been explored for about 8 miles and much has not been explored yet. There is a crystal clear pond in the cave and some... More

We were visiting several Texas locations in our motorhome. We arrived at the Caverns early enough in the day to tour the cave complex that afternoon after getting set up in our campsite. We used one of the pull-thru sites that had 20/30/50 amp power and water available. Not much shade available for the motorhome but we were able to... More

We called ahead, while driving cross country, regarding camping and spoke to a lovely young lady who gave us great information. Including directions "the old fashion way" as she stated (loved it!), the closest place to grab food on our way in, where to pay after hours, etc. When we arrived it was hard to decipher between sites as they...

We have visited more than a few limestone caverns throughout the US (Carlsbad, Mammoth Cave, Luray and Endless Caverns in VA, Meramec and Onondaga in MO, Natural Bridge and Inner Space Caverns in TX). The Caverns of Sonora would have to rank near the top of those in both the quantity and quality of the amazing formations. For a relatively... More

I've always wanted to go to Sonora Caverns and as this was the last day of my daughter's spring break I took the opportunity... I checked trip advisor before we went and was a little hesitant based on the reviews of the staff attitudes and long waits... Let me just say that our experience was perfection! The place was not...
