Attraction details
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.

“Nice”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I was a little disappointed as I thought the price was a little high. The caverns are pretty small, but beautiful and the tour was ok - although sometimes it was hard to understand the kid - yes kid - who was leading the tour. I don't know, nothing in particular that was bad, I guess I just wanted a ilttle more experience for the money. It is a nice place to spend a couple of hours and my son did enjoy it. As far as the stairs, there are 71 stairs down to the entrance of the cavern and back up, of course. It didn't bother me, but anyone who is elderly might have a problem.

“What an unexpected find.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

The caves have lots of formations, and the area around them is beautiful. Easy to reach off a main highway. Reasonably priced. Nice people taking you on the tour. I have been in larger caves that had less to offer than this little gem.

You must be able to climb stairs, but there are no really tight squeezes. There is a gift shop and petting zoo too.

“Keeping our cool”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

It was very interesting and a very cool way to stay out of the heat. Our tour guide was very well informed and the pace was good. The problem was all the stairs.

The caverns are super cool and interesting, providing you with lots to see. It's cool down there so it is a good summer activity. It's a must try thing when visiting.
