You’ll Want To Visit The Giant Sinkhole In Texas That Is Home To Millions Of Bats

On the edge of the Edwards Plateau in Rocksprings lies a 400 foot deep cavern by the name of The Devil’s Sinkhole. It’s the largest single-chamber and third deepest cavern in the state, which is good because the four million Mexican Free-Tailed bats that make their home here during summertime take up quite a bit of room. Every night at dusk, the sky turns into a blanket of swirling blackness as the creatures emerge from the depths of the hole. You can witness the spectacle for yourself from Wednesday through Sunday – tours are held each night of the season.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Directions to the park can be found here.
