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.

On our recent trip to Hershey we decided to try Indian Echo Caverns. Having never been inside caves before this was a very interesting experience for our family! The different colors, shapes and formations inside the caverns were interesting to look at. Our tourguide, Kimberly, was excellent and the temperature was great compared to the 90 degrees outside! Though some... More

We took our 12year old son and we all enjoyed it. It was about 46$ for the three of us for the 1 hour tour. I thought it was worth the money. The 72 steps down is actually,on the way to the entrance, pretty easy up/down, places to stop if tired. There were some litle kids in our tour group,... More

We took a break from the chaos of Hershey Park to visit the caverns. While the ticket price of $18/adult and $11/child is a bit steep, we took the risk anyway. Our tour guide was Kimberly and, while only 15, she was very charismatic, friendly and knowledgeable. The caverns are beautiful and wel-lit enough to be able to take in... More

I bring a group of school children once a year and am always pleased to see the gift shop is varied and fun. There is a treasure box that was found inside the cave by children and my children always stop to take a look. The cave is wonderful and the water inside the cave in the underground lake is... More

Indian Echo Caverns is well worth the stop. The guided tour of the caverns was very interesting, and the guide (her name was Kayla) was very personable. Good for all ages.

Went with the family and had a great time. The walk down the 71 steps was great exercise. We cooled off in the caves which are about 52 degrees. Wear shoes with a good grip and take lots of pictures. The tour guide shared lots of fun facts and did not rush the group. Nice little gift shop and cute... More

We enjoyed out visit, but the tickets are pricey. They packed about 28 people into our group which made it difficult to see the whole cavern and hear and ask the tour guide questions. It's only about a 45 minute tour. They some goats that you can see and pet and a nice playground area for the kids. I would... More

Took the kids while on a trip to Hershey Park. We all had a very nice visit and were very impressed by our young tour guide. He was really great and funny. This probably doesn't mean much to most people but I'm a bit claustrophobic and normally can't do caves. But the caverns here have very tall ceilings and I... More
