Our tour of Indiana took us through so many incredible and varied experiences. My kids woke up with wonder each morning wondering what they would see. Taking an Indiana Caverns tour was a highlight for everyone. Many thanks to Indiana Caverns for hosting our family for a tour. All opinions are my own.
An Underground World to Explore
Indiana Caverns is part of the Binkley Cave system in Corydon, Indiana and boasts the longest cave in Indiana! Since October 2016 the cave is over 43. 9 miles long.
During a 1 hour and 30 minute tour, you’ll descend 110 feet underground. Be prepared for some stairs, but my six year old didn’t have any problem walking the entire tour himself, so we did not find it too strenuous.
The views are gorgeous. It is amazing to me to see how beautiful God created even the spaces underneath our feet!
Stalagmites, stalactites, boulders, cliffs, animal life, waterfalls–it’s like discovering another world down there! Especially since this is a relatively new cave, we felt like pioneers delving into uncharted territory.
Fun for Kids
The kids especially enjoyed the various faces and shapes the walls made at times. It was like finding animals in the clouds.
Discover bones and fossils
One of the most unique things about Indiana Caverns is the vast amounts of bones found and uncovered there!
Of the bones found flat-headed peccary, bears, bison, beavers, and fishers are the most common.
Get a Family Photo
I loved the opportunity to get a photo of the family taken in the cave! We were there, all of us, even me. See? 🙂 It’s so hard for me to jump in photos since I’m always holding the camera.
Take a Boat Ride
A new experience for me was taking a 25 minute boat ride on the underground river!
Look how close my husband’s head is to the ceiling! There were a few times he had to even duck. We all found this experience incredibly fascinating!

I would love to do this with the family. We’ve been to Ruby Falls in Tennessee, and we loved it. I think we’ve have so much fun at Indiana Caverns, too!

Wow. That ceiling was pretty short. I bet my kiddos would love seeing all of that in person too. So awesome!

It looks like you had a great time! I wouldn’t venture into the cave but I’m sure my family would.
Wow, those are some really nice photos. Now this is a place I’d love to visit. I know my entire family would really like it there.
I have never been to Indiana.. This place looks wonderful! I am sure my family would love to explore the cave.
