Site Information

Camping at Cave Without a Name

Cave Without a Name has made their property available to Workshop attendees at no additional cost.

Cave Without a Name has a very nice campground and pavilion site. Tent camping is encouraged. The campground includes many level sites, along with access to picnic tables, a covered pavilion, restrooms, non-potable running water (bring drinking water) and parking. Several moderate level hiking trails are located on the grounds for exploration.

You may have a limited number of cars at your campsite but tent sites are a priority over cars so you may be asked to move vehicles to a designated parking spot. Speed limit throughout camp is 3 mph

A few RV hookups are available which must be reserved directly through Cave Without a Name. RV hookups are $25 per night.

If you are arriving on Friday night or early Saturday morning, a special combination lock will be placed on the gate.

Local Hotels

Hotel lodging is available in Boerne, approximately 9 miles from the site. No special rates have been negotiated with local hotels.

Camp Ground Description

Much of the Cave Without a Name property is wild land and there are plenty of wild critters in the area. Deer, wild hogs and snakes have been seen on the property from time to time. In addition, there will be approximately 300 humans present. Please understand that this is a stressful event for animals, and the owners of the property have a NO PET policy for the event. If you bring a pet, you will be asked to remove the pet from the property. Well behaved service animals are permitted.

The Cave Without a Name property abuts a subdivision and we need to be respectful of the neighbors.

We're also trying to crowd a lot of happy campers into this space, so if your group spreads out too far, you will have people camping among you. Please extend a hand and be aware that we’re all part of a close knit family working in the geosciences. Share your campground with others, trade experiences about your school, and make new friends and contacts.

Campsite Issues

There is a Campground Marshall who will be the final arbitrator to address any issues that may arise. The Marshall can and will assign camping spots, kick people out, and generally be a curmudgeon. Don't Balkanize the campground.

Leave No Trace

Cave Without a Name has a “Leave no Trace” policy at the campground so please police your area and bag up all trash and either place it in the roll off or take it with you. Remember to take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, and kill nothing but time. It is important to adhere to this policy so we get invited back again.
