So me and my Sister went on a day trip. You have to drive down a narrow county road to get to this, then down a dirt road. It felt creepy driving down the county road let alone to get there. It was quiet. We didn’t see or hear anything odd, but we did feel like we were being watched. She had evps that were coming out with the word “Indian” in them and figures that were standing a distance from me seen through her phone that disappeared when I turned to look. We took a picture and I noticed in the photo later when I got home there was a strange figure with a face that looked like an Indian. Super strange!

OK, maybe the title of this review isn’t exactly the right phrasing. But this is certainly is a unique, dark, and a bit creepy piece of Texas history. All the more interesting when you think about when all this took place and the fact that the roads you traveled on to get here we’re not here and this place is in the middle of BFE back then.

If you’re going by this area, it’s just a short detour to get here.

Found this place by browsing Trip Advisor while eating lunch in Marble Falls. Had a bit of trouble finding the location-it’s on Dead Man’s Hole Road😊. A bit disappointed that the hole was covered up-obviously a safety issue, but definitely worth a quick visit.

In town exploring and it was on list of attractions. Hubby likes scary things so I thought might be just up his alley. Got there 2 guys were there exploring with a lantern on a rope. Yes, history is creepy, but appears as another TX cave! Best part was new 7-11 at the end of the road! We could have missed this and lived life all the same!

I am always up for a search/ quest. This was very hard to find even after stopping at the visitors center. The roads are not clearly marked. In fact i went past the turn several miles. When i turned around then i saw the correct sign to turn. It is very easy to find once you are on the correct small road. Very interesting place. Worth a search.

Not much to see, as the cave had a steel plate over it. Very hard to find. use these directions:
1. 1/2 mile down 2147 or 2197 (I do not remember). If coming north on 281 it will be before you hit the Exon with the small resturant in it.
2. You will be turning right. (street does not go left)
3. CR 401 will be on the right. There was a small building there.
4. After turning right go .7 miles.
5. Entrence will be on left, very easy to miss as it is only a dirt road and looks like a private road.
6. Follow road back and it will open up in to a small parking area.
7. Hold is straight back. will see a sign with some info on the hole.

Believe me or not but this is the solemn truth. I visited Dead Man's hole a while back. Heard about it my entire life (was once on family land). My wife stayed in the car while I checked out the hole. Got back in the car and headed to Austin. After the visit, every time I applied the breaks there was a loud squeal. Took the car to NTB to figure out what was wrong. Turned out I had a piece of granite rock stuck between my break pad and rotor - on but BOTH! front tires!! Never before and never since has this happened to me on even one tire. I can't explain it but.....

I don't know where these 5 star reviews are coming from. Aside from reading the marker and a quick glance at the cave entrance, which is covered, there is absolutely nothing to see and do here.

Unless you're right here, then fine, but not worth any kind of a separate trip or even much of a detour.

It is indeed hard to find. The best way is to find it on Bing or Google maps and figure out all your directions before you get on the road.

I'm continuing typing because the reviews have to be 500 characters, and there is not that much to say.

The hole is a lesson in Geology, as its a solution cavity that never completely filled in. These holes filled in are considered breccia zones within the lime stone unground rock formations. The history behind this hole is amazing, as the bones of 17 different people were found on a ledge around 100' down the hole. They say the sprits of these people come out on certain nights around the hole. The county has now taken over this property, and made he hole safe with Iron grating so no one can fall into the hole.

This is an interesting find. I tried to find it from Trip Advisor and the directions are wrong. You need to put it in GPS. Once I did that, it was easy to find. There was steam coming out of the hole which made it even more interesting. Definitely worth a quick trip to see.
