Turns out it was called the "Frio Bat Cave" and is pretty well known amongst bat enthusiasts. Was one of the coolest things I've seen. Also, wreck 'em.
Back when I was a kid, we used to do quite a bit of fishing on the Guadalupe River below the H5 power plant about 8 or 9 miles north of where the San Marcos River finally joins it. We broke two sheer pins on our outboard motor one evening and had to paddle, upstream, to the fishing camp. I was amazed to see how many more bats were out when the loud old Sears 7.5hp wasn't running up and down the river. Very cool experience. Dad hated it. Not fond of bats, doesn't mind snakes.
