Pennsylvania's Most Historic Limestone Cavern
Want to escape the heat of summer? Then take a trip to Indian Caverns where the temperature is a constant 56 degrees Fahrenheit all year.
Nestled in a foothill of the Allegheny Mountains, Indian Caverns is located between State College and Altoona on scenic Route 45. The cave entrance overlooks Spruce Creek, a stream world renowned for its native brown and rainbow trout. Reaching a depth of 140 feet, the cavern has chambers up to 40 feet wide and 60 feet high and is the largest limestone cavern in Pennsylvania.
Indian Caverns is a "living" cavern - the majority of the dripstone and flowstone formations are still active and growing 1 cubic inch every 120 years. There are countless cave formations including stalagmites, columns, stalactites, soda straws, cave coral and the largest sheet of flowstone in the northeast referred to as "The Frozen Niagra."
The tour is conducted by an experienced, well-informed guide who will explain the complete history of the cavern, its use since prehistoric times, and examples of Authentic Native American history, colorful local folklore, and massive rock formations. The tour covers nearly a mile of electrically illuminated splendor. Concrete and gravel walkways make the tour easy to walk and navigate. A spacious parking lot, picnic areas and Cavern Gift shop are provided for your convenience.
