The distinction between wild cave tours and show caves is that the wild caves have no trails or electric lights, and one of the attractions is the native cave fauna. Several State-owned caves are now open to guided wild caving tours: Kickapoo Cavern near Brackettville, Kinney County, and several caves at Colorado Bend State Park, San Saba County. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department is trying to manage these caves in an ecologically sound manner. Other caves, such as Enchanted Rock Cave, are open to state park visitors without special permits.
