Tours

Tours of the Devil’s Sinkhole State Natural Area begin at the Rocksprings Visitors Center on the Rocksprings town square. Tours are provided by the volunteers of the nonprofit Devil’s
Sinkhole Society, Inc., a Texas Parks and Wildlife friends group.

How do the tours work?

All tours begin at the Rocksprings Visitors Center on the Rocksprings town square. Tours are provided Wednesdays-Sundays. Bat tour season is from May 1 – October 31. No tours are provided Mondays or Tuesdays.

After you make a reservation, come to the Rocksprings Visitors Center at your appointed time, fill out your “release and waiver” form, pay your fee, and meet your tour guide. We usually watch a video before caravanning to the National Natural Landmark, eight miles away.
