Hours

Trail is open year-round from sunrise to 5 p.m.

Bat-viewing tickets required to stay after 5 p.m.

For bat viewings, May 1 through Oct. 31, you must get tickets in advance online or by calling the Customer Service Center, or you will not be allowed in the park after 5 p.m. Bring printed tickets or a phone with email confirmation to show at gate. We do not sell tickets on-site.


Space is limited in our bat viewing areas, so purchase your ticket early. The bat viewing areas and the trail to it meet ADA accessibility guidelines. Children under 4 years old are not allowed at the lower area.


Sometimes bats do not emerge before it is too dark to see and/or weather conditions can cause the bats not to emerge. There are no refunds if bats are not visible.


For the most up-to-date bat emergence information, check Facebook, Twitter, or call the toll-free line at (866) 978-2287 (recorded message only). To contact us, email Old.Tunnel@tpwd.texas.gov.


From November through April, the park is closed to all entry after 5 p.m. Due to the sensitive nature of this park, we do not allow camping, pets or smoking.
