If you want solitude, a quiet and clean place to camp with beautiful night skies, this is the place for you. The staff is friendly and very helpful, and they have full hookups for RV’s and a group area available. The camping area is well maintained. However, there is not any trash disposal, so come prepared to pack your trash out with you when you leave.

5. Hiking

The park has 6,368.4 acres on the Southern Edwards Plateau. Besides exploring the Kickapoo Cavern itself, there are numerous marked trails with diverse landscapes to hike. One trail is named the Seargeant Memorial Trail, which is named after Tommy Seargeant, who sold the land to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and was a strong supporter of developing this park. This particular trail is three-quarters of a mile, starts near the campground and goes through creek beds and ridges, reaches an overlook with amazing views of hills and valleys in the park, then continues on to a location near the original trailhead. The other trails are differing lengths and terrain for hikers with all skill levels.
