Penn's Cave

America's only all-water cavern and wildlife park are nestled in Central Pennsylvania's scenic Penn State Country.

The cavern tour is a guided, one-hour tour by motorboat on an underground stream. Along the limestone corridors, stalagmites, stalactites, flowstone cascades and draperies decorate the interior rooms, while underwater, trout swim and jump for feed!

The farm and wildlife tour is a guided 90-minute motorized tour over 1,500 acres of Penn's Cave forests and fields which have been carefully preserved as a natural habitat for birds, plants, and animals. North American animals, such as deer, elk, wolves, bears, bison, and mustangs are seen, as well as longhorn cattle.

We always enjoy the lazy boat ride through the giant chamber that comprises most of Penn's Cave, along with the litany of formation names shouted out by the guide...
