Brief DescriptionExperience PA's American Indian Heritage Underground!
CategoryHistoric Site
DescriptionExperience Pennsylvania's Native American heritage, local folklore, and subterranean geology.

Located on scenic Rt. 45 in the beautiful Spruce Creek valley, Indian Caverns has been in almost continuous use since the neolithic era. Serving as a winter shelter for early nomadic tribes, an important fortification and trading post for Algonquin and Iroquois settlements, and a refuge for various criminal elements in more recent times, the cave and environs are rich with local history.

Inside you will explore winding passageways and expansive chambers and see massive and intricate formations that took thousands of years to develop, as well as the mysterious "White Grotto" in which a mineral deposit glows in the dark.

Also on display are a tablet of petroglyphs and a collection of Native American artifacts found inside the cave.

Browsing in our gift shop, fish-feeding in the creek, panning for arrowheads or gems, and settling into our picnic area for an afternoon lunch provide additional activities.

Reviews for Indian Caverns in State College, PA

5 StarsExcellent!Indian Caverns is a family atmosphere rather than other caverns that are just commercial giants. The Owners are great and the Halloween projects look great and may get there in 2012. Congrats to a small outstanding resort, and cool in the summer - natures air conditioning.Middle age couple12-11-11
5 StarsExcellent!I have visited Indian Caverns many times over the years since I was a child. My children have also visited the caverns. The tour guides have always been outstanding and knowledgeable, and they have very interesting stories to relate. The caverns themselves are fascinating. Go out to Huntingdon County to visit Indian Caverns. You will be able to locate them easily as you travel the local highways. They provide plenty of signs along the way. Middle age female12-11-11
5 StarsExcellent!One of the things that makes Indian Caverns unique is all the history associated with the thing. I expected the pretty standard impressive geology (and there is plenty of that), but it was the Pre-History, Native-American artifacts, and "outlaw" stories that really did it for me. Seriously, the thing has lost buried treasure in it. Entertaining, in addition to being large and impressive. To those of you that remember Indian Caverns as a standard, old-fashioned "road side attraction," please know that It once might have been, but they really do a good job telling a story out of it now. More like a time-warp than roadside attraction, if you ask me. Can't help but think kids would love it... Highly Recommended!!!Middle age male06-21-08
