Natural Splendor

Over 440 million years old, Indian Echo Caverns, a limestone cave, formed through the erosive properties of water. As water flowed over the limestone, it began to create small crevices and these small crevices led to larger ones, and eventually, over a series of millions of years, it created the caverns as they are today.

The caverns were first opened to the public in 1929.  The 45 minute tour is conducted by a professionally trained, interpretive guide who explains the geology, history and shows the beautiful formations of the caverns. The intriguing true history of the “Pennsylvania Hermit” who resided in the caverns between 1802 and 1821, and the legend of the “Mystery Box” will be revealed during your tour. On the journey, you will see the cavernous Indian Ballroom, the Blue Room, the Rainbow Room, Crystal Lake and much more. 

Your visit is not complete without a stop at the gift shop. It features a distinctive array of quality local and regional gift selections. Find a variety of handmade Native American items and artwork, and rare and beautiful minerals. Summer hours are 9:00am to 6:00pm Memorial Day to Labor Day and 10:00am to 4:00pm year round. 

Looking to escape the summer heat, then plan a trip to Indian Echo Caverns where the temperature inside the cavern is 52 degrees year around.  Extend your trip with a stay at a nearby Bed and Breakfast.
