The National Cave of Texas
"The scenic beauty, the splendors which time and water have wrought...defy description."
Located less than 90 minutes from Austin, Texas, Longhorn Cavern State Park is a unique Hill Country destination full of natural beauty and Texas-sized tales.
Developed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the park’s star attraction is Longhorn Cavern, an underground wonder created by the dissolving and cutting action of an ancient river.
Enjoy a guided cave tour, hike a Hill Country trail, and admire some of Texas' best examples of historic CCC architecture. It's all part of the story of Longhorn Cavern State Park.
"I've been to caverns in Virginia, Texas, New York, and Tennessee, and I must say this one was different than all the rest. Make the trip; you won't regret it."
"This is a spectacular cave with many fascinating stories…Can't wait to go back."
"Truly an amazingly beautiful place...both underground and above! Go to the lookout tower for exceptional views!"
"We're from out of state and wanted to check out a cavern in Texas…This is our family's first time going to a cavern and it's amazing. I was blown away by the experience."
