Out of the way but pretty drive. Enthusiastic tour guide, Brian, kept a group of 35 interested, safe and organized. Educational but not detailed. Only complaint was the number of mosquitoes, but I am mosquito bait.

We took our two oldest grandchildren (ages 13 and 10) for a morning visit to this most interesting place. We all enjoyed our visit very much. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining, and it was 1.5 hours of family fun.

Longhorn Cavern State Park is 6 miles from Inks Lake State Park on Inks Lake which has kayaking. Longhorn Cavern does not have kayaking.
