Did you know that our resort is located near multiple Texas state parks where you can go to enjoy all sorts of amazing outdoor adventures? At Enchanted Rock State Park, your group has all sorts of sightseeing options, including hiking trails, rock climbing, biking trails, and much more. One of the most unique things to do in the area is watching the estimated 3 million bats fly out into the dusk sky at the Old Tunnel State Park. There used to be a railroad at the site, so the bats flocked to the area where they were able to live in the train cars. To this day, they fly out of the tunnel in search of food when the sun starts to set.
