  • Camped here for two nights while on a road trip. This small state park has great campsites, fantastic and friendly staff, good amenities, and beautiful hikes. The bat cave and bat emergence at night.....  more »
  • A very nice, quiet, remote state park located in the southern range of Texas Hill Country. There are a small number of campsites, with five having full hookups for RV's. The park is 30 miles down....  more »
  • If you haven't been you need to go this place was beyond my expectations. I think his name was Will he was a great guide into the caverns he picked up on our sense of humor and joined in while still explaining a lot and showing us all the cavern had to offer I could go on and on its beautiful drink lots of water. Oh and don't forget your flashlights there are no lights in the cave or railing 💖 definitely going back the view of the stars is amazing!
  • This park was a true delight to visit. The park campground was clean and easy to navigate. The bathroom was the cleanest I have ever visited in a state park. The trails were well kept and provided some excellent views. They have an evening bat viewing which was very interesting and was an amazing experience to view. The cave tour was exceptional and so much fun for only ten dollars per person. It was truly the best cave trip I have been on. My husband and I had so much fun we went back again on Sunday. I must say however that Kickapoo's best feature is the personnel who work at this park. Every person we had the pleasure of interacting with was so knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you Charlie and all the other personnel who make Kickapoo Caverns such a wonderful spot to visit!
