    Longhorn Cavern State Park features Longhorn Cavern, a Texas Hill Country wonder created over thousands of years by the dissolving and cutting action of water on the limestone bedrock of the area. Fossil remains show that many Ice Age animals once occupied the cave.

    Our earliest records indicate that the Comanche Indians were the first to use the cavern. They came in about 400 years or so before anyone else did.

    In more recent history, the cavern was used as a Confederate stronghold where gunpowder was manufactured in secret during the Civil War. The cavern is also rumored to have been the hideout of Sam Bass, a legendary Texas outlaw.

    Longhorn Cavern is one of the few river-formed caverns in Texas.

    I love this State Park! If you are lucky enough to be in the area on the last Saturday of the month, you can also go on the Paranormal tour of the Caverns, and I highly recommend it!

    Spelunking, anyone? Longhorn Cavern has a wonderful, informative, and fun tour that takes you into the caverns that have been a speakeasy, a bomb shelter, and a hideout for scoundrels, and the site of indian ceremonies. Wear sneakers and expect it to be chilly--even in the Texas summer!

    A fascinating journey into a limestone cavern carved by an underground river. It is a cool place to explore even in the heat of summer.

    A must for the kiddos! Tour the underground cave where outlaws and speakeasies used to call home. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter!

    One of the largest caverns in the state. A wonderful way to spend half a day.
