The cave temperature is the same all year so both during summer heat and winter cold are great times to visit.
We are closed Thanksgiving and Christmas day.
Typically, your wait will be less than 30 minutes. Wait times may increase on holidays or peak summer weekends.

The cave is 57 degrees year round. You may need a jacket during the underground boat ride. Good walking shoes are recommended. However, most anything without high heels should be fine. Thong sandals and flip flops are not suitable.
There is a great selection of shopping and dining opportunities, wineries, motels, cabins, and bed & breakfasts all within 10 minutes of the cavern.
O’Bannon Woods State Park is also nearby. An RV campground is less than 2 miles from the cave in Corydon.
We accept cash and major card cards (American Express excluded).
We’re always happy to support regional non profit organizations as well as community based fund raisers.
We’ll donate a pair of cave tour tickets (valued at $36) which can be used as a live silent auction item or as part of a larger package. They have no expiration date.
Donation requests should be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the event. Out of state requests must be within 50 miles of Corydon, Indiana.
People of all ages are able to take the cave tour. Although Indiana Caverns is not handicapped accessible, most anyone who can walk unassisted should be able to take the tour.
There is about 110 feet of elevation change in Indiana Caverns. From the visitor’s center, it is mostly downhill to the underground river. On the way out, the tour route climbs almost 110 feet from the underground river level back through the Big Bone Mountain room and up the ramp into the Visitor’s Center. Visitors must be able to walk up several ramps and a several sections with some steps.
Small children are welcome. If they can’t yet walk, they will need to be carried for the cave tour. Strollers are not allowed. Partway through the cave tour is an underground boat ride, which gives everyone a chance to sit down, rest and relax.
Pets are not allowed in the cave.
