Kickapoo Caverns State Natural Area

Location(s): 
The park offers picnic sites, camping, hiking, mountain biking, bird-watching, cave tours, and evening bat flight viewing during the season.

Interesting features of the park include 20 known caves, two of which are large enough to be significant. Kickapoo Cavern is approximately 0.25 miles in length (1,400 feet) and boasts some impressive formations. Tours are offered on Saturdays by reservation. Stuart Bat Cave (formally Green Cave), slightly shorter than Kickapoo at 1,068 feet, serves as a migratory stopover for large numbers of Mexican free-tailed bats from mid-March to about the end of October. Bat flights are often spectacular, and public observations are available with an entrance permit. To protect this valuable resource and for your safety, please read and follow all rules and regulations and use caution, as conditions change on a daily basis. Unauthorized entrance into caves is prohibited.

Birding opportunities abound in this area. Park facilities include 14 miles of mountain biking trails and 18 miles of undesignated hiking and birding trails. The park has campsites for tents and recreational vehicles (water, electricity, and sewer hookups). There is also a group campsite for up to 30 people.
