368 Middletown Rd., Hummelstown, Pennsylvania 17036| Map |
The Indian Echo Caverns are an educational but equally exciting and fun part of a trip to Pennsylvania. Located approximately three hours away from Hershey, PA, the limestone Indian Echo Caverns are filled with stalagmites, stalactites and cavern dwellers like blindfish and crustaceans. Take a break from the regular tourist attractions and try this unique adventure. Kids will want to wear jackets as the temperature is a constant 52 degrees in any season. Educational tours geared towards children provide fun facts and the history of the caverns. In addition to the caverns, the Indian Echo Caverns site also has a petting zoo, playground and picnic area.

Great to visit if you're near Hershey!Flag review
The whole family loved this place, it was amazing to walk into the cave and see how big it is. There is "graffiti" from the 1800s and other fun stuff to see. It's a lot cooler in the caves too and can sometimes be dark. It's great if you have any family members into nature or rocks. There is a small playground and some other activities like gem mining.
Tips for Families
There are alot of stairs down to the cave (and back up again), would not be good for very small children that could run off and you would not be able to take a stroller in. Also, get there early. We were the third group of the day and there was a huge line as we were leaving.
