only all-water cavern and wildlife park are nestled in Central Pennsylvania's
scenic Lion Country, just minutes from Interstate 80 & 99. Two separate
guided tours are offered - a 50 minute tour of the water cavern
by boat and a 90-minute tour of the wildlife park by motor vehicle.
Penn's Cave is the only cave in Pennsylvania placed on The National Register of Historic Places. The limestone
cavern, rich in geology and history, is a natural landmark that
is a stunning example of nature's flawless beauty and color. Glittering
stalactites and stalagmites often appear in mysteriously familiar
shapes, such as "The Statue of Liberty" and "The Garden of the Gods".
See how dripping water has sculpted magnificent flowstone, curtains,
cascades, and draperies against a background of pillars and gigantic
interpretive tour includes a motorboat trip that winds through cavern
passageways and, when weather permits, a ride on Lake Nitanee. The cavern tour is on flat-bottom
motorboats, which accommodate 20-22 persons. There are 48 steps that lead to the main entrance to the cave, which is not handicapped accessible.
A sweater or jacket is recommended
because the temperature is 52 degrees, and comfortable walking shoes
are advised. Cameras are welcome, but we suggest the use of flash
and/or high-speed film for all inside pictures. Video cameras are
