Wolf Caves, LLC


This property has been in the Eppler family for 7 generations. The granite rock formation known as Wolf Caves was named by Henry Tipton Eppler and his son Henry Walter Eppler when they first settled on the land in the 1890's. At that time wolves inhabited the Mason County area. Even though wolves no longer inhabit the area today, the Wolf Caves rock formation is a popular hangout spot for mountain lions, bobcat, coyote, fox, raccoons, etc.

The fields that you drive through between the campground and the offroad area have mostly grown up in Mesquite trees today but it wasn't always that way. In the last 120+ years a wide variety of crops have been grown on this land. For many decades peanuts were the king cash crop in this area but other crops that have been grown over the years are: watermelons, cantaloupes, corn, peas, cotton, peaches, apples, pears, potatoes, onions, plums, and many other crops. Henry Walter Eppler made syrup from sugar cane / sorghum and the remains of the old syrup cooker can still be seen today. Through the decades this land has also been used for cattle, Angora goat, and hog production.

Another area of the property that has some history tied to it is a granite rock named Monument Rock. The story goes that many years ago there was some writing on this rock in white paint. The writing told something about Robert E. Lee and his men that were in the area. Today there is no evidence left of the white paint or what it might have said, but the story about Monument Rock has been passed down through the Eppler generations.

We hope you enjoy your visit to this unique place and we ask that you please respect the property, livestock, and wildlife that live here.
