Overview
More
Natural Splendor along the Swatara.Like many caverns in the Mid-Atlantic states, Indian Echo Caverns is a limestone cave. Cut through Beekmantown limestone, which is over 440 million years old, they were formed through the erosive properties of water. As time progressed, geological forces led to an "uplift" of the surrounding limestone, eventually allowing more and more water to flow through the formation. As the water flowed over the limestone, it began to create small crevices, 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 temperature inside the caverns is 52 degrees year around.

This is a great place to visit. There are about 71 steps to get down to the cave and some once inside. Beautiful caves, and very informative friendly guides. My husband and I had a blast seeing, and learning the history behind this cave. There...More

I have been to some spectacular caves in various parts of the world. This in not one of them. Worth a visit, anyway, as I obviously did. I can't help but stop and visit any cave I come across.

We went here in August 2017. The caves were interesting and the guide was informative. The caves were a little cold - definitely bring a sweatshirt or something with long sleeves. Not a bad place to visit but it was a little expensive.
