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.

What a great place to visit! For the price, $36.00 for two kids and one adult, you get to see an amazing natural wonder. The 45 minute guided tour (Thanks Zack!) was led by a very knowledgeable and friendly employee. The caverns are spectacular, cool and the trail well groomed. My grandkids loved panning for fossils, arrow heads and minerals.... More

This is one of the attraction you should never miss if you are around the area. Prepared to walk to see the entire Cavern. They have lighted inside , so you will get good views. It is privately-owned. Prices are little high.

The tour guides are fine and give a good tour. Never buy anything at the gift shop. I bought a purse. As soon as I got home (90 minutes later) I tried to unzip the purse to load it. The zipper came off in my hand. I called the store immediately to see what my options were in terms of... More

The Caverns were a very interesting adventure. They at some point added lighting to the Caverns and the tour guide we had was very informative. There are 75 steps down to the Caverns. I think they should upgrade the lighting to LED so they can leave the lights on a little longer. They also should reconsider what age they charge... More

We had already seen Hershey Park and since we didn't want to spend another day there, we decided to check out Indian Echo Caverns. There are about 71 steps you have to walk down and up when the tour is finished, but it was a very cool experience. 52 degrees in the cavern versus about 86 outside. The tour guide... More

Enchanting cavern in middle of Pa. It's beautiful, ornate, formation galore. It's the most ornate cave open to public in Pa. Worth the trip to see no matter where you're traveling from or to. Stop and see the splendor!!!

So to start the tour the tour guide was mad at the manager or who ever called groups. She literally called one group and would wait some time but for ours she called the next group within a few minutes so he did not have time to give info at beginning. Then he complained about her and how he wasn't... More
