The Lone Star Preserve is a privately owned property and is NOT open to the public EXCEPT during Speleofest. We welcome everyone to join us for Speleofest and provide these directions for this event. If you like our facility enough to want to come on your own please join the Louisville Grotto ($30) for year-round access to the beautiful preserve. We will report trespassers to law enforcement if necessary.
