  • Don't plan on going through a maze of caves. It's barely a cave but it would have provided a little shelter back in the day. The park features hiking trails and beautiful views.

  • Beautiful state park! Camping for every level of outdoorsmen. Wonderful backpack in sites, tent sites of varying sizes depending on how many are in your group and plenty of fire rings. Trails are wonderful and really get you out of the day to day routine. I would try looking online for a different map before you go, though. The one they hand out is not very helpful.
  • This park is my favorite in the state because of the trails. This is a must see location during the fall it's truly breath-taking. There are historical buildings you can see and camping, both back-country and primitive spots. The trails are also nice because they very in length and connect at different trailheads if you want to keep going. Great place for families and the adventurous type awesome weekend getaway.
  • Very nice trails. Well maintained. Good options for different levels. Nice campsites with fire rings and picnic tables, worn but servable.
  • Indian Cave State Park is truly Nebraska's hidden gem. Located just two hours from Lincoln and Topeka, and an hour and a half from Omaha and Saint Joseph one would think this park would be busy, however it's quite the opposite. Indian Cave has miles of hiking trail for everyone from a casual walked to an avid hiker, RV pads, boat docks, fishing, camping, horseback riding, and much more. When my family and I went tent camping (One week before the 4th of July) there was almost no one in the park. Most of the camp sites are located in one loop where there was only two other small groups of people. When we arrived at the park we asked the gentleman in the main office about where the campsites are located and he told us that there is the main loop of tent sites with a nice shower/bathroom but we are also welcome to set up at any of the fire-rings located throughout the park. This is really nice as you can camp just about anywhere you would like, including along many of the hiking trails. The "cave" that the park is known for was a very cool thing to see, while it is more of a cliff and overhang, it was something that you don't see every day. Since the "cave" is limestone it is very soft and lots of people have hopped the fence and carved their names into the cliff making it impossible to see any of the ancient Indian carvings. Other than the cave graffiti, the park is one the nicest I've been to, and definitely something would not be expected to be located in Nebraska. Defiantly a wonderful place to spend the day, or a week!
  • The campsites are right off the side of the road. Not very appealing. We were interested in the Indian cave but there is so much graffiti you can't see the original carvings. It's just covered in other pictures. They really should shut down that area or not list it as an attraction.
