The Comal County Grotto is an informal group of persons interested in caves, caverns, karst, exploration and cave rescue. We have no formal meetings established - just friends getting together. Comal County has close to 480 caves that have been located - not all have been explored. All are on Private property. And we have some of the best caves in Texas. Natural Bridge Caverns, Honey Creek Cave (Texas' longest), Bracken Bat Cave (largest bat colony in the world), Brehmer Cave (established link to the civil war) and others.
The CCG does have a few rules that participants must adhere to:
1. Absolutely no trespassing!
2. Respect property owners wishes.
3. Take nothing from caves.
4. Leave nothing behind.
5. Cave Safely!!!!!
