Cascade Caverns is a historically, geologically, and biologically important limestone solutional cave 3 mi (4.8 km) south of Boerne, Texas, United States, on 226 Cascade Caverns Road, in Kendall County. It has been commercially operated as a show cave and open for public tours since 1932. Informal tours were run as far back as 1875, when Dr. Benjamin Hester owned the cave property. The cave was known by the native Lipan Apache people who lived in the area prior to 1800.

  • Love the caverns and wax out first time there. I liked them small but nice experience. There was a small group which I like too.  more »
  • First suggestion- call before you go! Apparently there has been a lot of rain lately and the caves tend to flood. We were the first tour within the past week because of flooding. It was my husband....  more »
  • Make sure you can do stairs for this one! They do their tours hourly and usually it's a small group of 4 to 8 people. It's one way in and out with a pump to take the water out and electricity in. It's magnificent to behold and see with your own eyes. A hidden gem. You actually get to taste the water from one of the little falls pepper to hitting the main centerpiece. The guides are very knowledgeable and eager to answer questions! It is privately owned and operated so it's not a Texas park owned area. They rely on visitors to keep it going and the business that owns it. Highly recommend it since you get up close and personal with the caverns.
  • Fun place. Great hole in the wall (pun intended) place. Worth the trip, great people and good tours. Relatively inexpensive and low key. Can camp there too.
