America’s Newest Showcave Opens on June 15th
America’s newest show cave, Indiana Caverns, has announced it will open its doors to the public on Saturday, June 15th at 9:00 am.
Part of the Binkley Cave System, Indiana’s longest cave system at over 58 kilometers (36 miles) and the 11th longest cave in the United States, Indiana Caverns was first discovered by cave explorers in 2010.
A sneak preview, given recently to local station WDRB, highlights the new 80 minute tour which includes both walking sections and a boat ride and features a 10 meter (35 foot) waterfall, formations and ice age animal bones.
Meanwhile, on the surface, the development team has worked on interpretive displays in the lobby and media room, a walking trail that relates karst features to the cave below, picnic area, a gemstone and fossil mining area and a gift shop.
Indiana Caverns is located just off SR 135, two miles south of Corydon, Indiana. The cavern will be open daily at 9:00 am except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
