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.

We enjoyed our visit to Indian Echo Caves. We were a little unsure if this would be worth visiting and it certainly was. Interesting history as well as beautiful.

We visited today with our two children (3 and 5). We brought a picnic and enjoyed it by the "petting zoo" (rather misleading name) before touring the cavern. The "petting zoo" is just a pen of goats and a pen of chickens. Not too much...More
