A “wild” cave is one that is in its natural state without stairs, lights or leveled paths. This page is for those who want the experience of the  “wild” cave.

It is important to note that one doesn’t just go “wild caving” just for adventure. Every entry into a wild cave destroys parts of the cave and stops the delicate features and growing. People who just want the adventure of wild caving should visit the following.

Spelunkers who are discovering, mapping, and studying the caves need to contact the Spelunker society in San Antonio.

Colorado Bend State Park offers ‘wild’ cave tours. There are two tours. One tour is a walking tour and the other is a crawling tour. More than 150 caves riddle the property that spans 5,300 acres. All of these caves are off limits except for guided tours.

            Walking tour Gorman Cave sturdy footwear recommended. Tour offered on the weekends.

            Crawling cave tour is a great way to learn the basics of caving.

Devil’s Sinkhole is a drop of about 150 feet into the cave. Reservations on scheduled guided tours are the only tours available because the dangerous drop and to protect the bat population. I added this to the list because it is on most Texas maps. So before venturing out to do some caving, know there are no tours. The bat flight is a very popular show.
