“America's only All-water cavern and Wildlife park”

Only cave in Pennsylvania on the National Register of Historic Places. Centuries ago, the Seneca Indians discovered this natural landmark in the Valley of Karoondinha (Penn’s Valley). The famous legend of the Indian maiden, Nita-nee (from whom the famous Penn State Nittany Lion got its name) and her French trapper lover, Malachi Boyer, has been told around campfires for generations. Forbidden to marry because of an Indian custom, they ran away and were captured, and Malachi was thrown into Penn’s Cave to die. Local history also tells of Indians and early explorers using the dry rooms for shelter. In 1885, Penn’s Cave opened as a commercial show cavern Cave Tour Farm, Nature, & Wildlife Tour Miner’s Maze Cave Rock Mountain Tour Gemstone Panning The Visitors Center is the hub of all activities at Penn’s Cave. Tickets for the tours can be purchased inside the center, and the gift shop features unique gifts, clothing, and souvenirs – all wonderful remembrances of your day at Penn’s Cave.
