To find, explore, survey, and inventory the caves and karst features in
Government Canyon State Natural Area. Sixty-one caves have been found
to date. Most are small, but the beautiful terrain and the reasonable
potential for something large keep cavers coming each trip. The longest
cave is 328.8 meters long and the deepest is over 26 meters deep. This is
a good training environment and everyone interested is welcome. The
Project is sponsored by the
TSA and Texas Speleological Survey. Detailed reports of all trips are filed in the TSS library.
