Owner description: 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 found the Caverns in a travel guide and thought it a great way to spend a hot afternoon. The 45 minute tour is cooling, interesting and well guided by the tour guides. Gift shop is what you'd expect with some interesting twists. After your tour don't miss the "Mystery Box" display!

We enjoyed our visit, a little different than we expected and don't bother counting the 71 stairs because they are all there. Nice place on a hot day.

We discovered Indian Echo Caverns on our way from Hershey Park to Gettysburg, and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The caverns are beautiful, and our tourguide was informative and charming. My eight year old daughter said that Indian Echo Caverns was the best part off our trip, beating Hershey Park and the Crayola Factory; I would have to agree with her. When you are in the area, make time to visit this beautiful section of Pennsylvania!
