Old Tunnel State Park, Fredericksburg Reviews

  • Interesting place! Has been a few years now since we've been there but was neat looking through it and seeing the bats swarming in the middle of it during the day time! A good extra stop for a road trip for sure!

  • Great park. We will be back in the summer to see the bats. Lots of hikingbut a bit steep for those now steady on their feet. Gorgeous yummy restaurant eight down the road.

  • Took the family out to see the bats, what an amazing experience! Well worth the money to sit in the lower level closer to the tunnel exit, but get there early as it seemed to get busy REALLY quick and there are only so many seats available in the lower level

  • Neat place. The trail was a little hard to find, and I know it wasn't just me because I explained where it was to several people after I found it (if you're looking out at the scenery over the seating, it's to your right). Nice walk, I enjoyed seeing the names of the plants. Plenty of parking. Don't expect a pit stop, bathrooms are closed most of the time.

  • Excellent times three location. Go see the bats. Texas Parks & Wildlife at its best. Highly recommend
