This hike is a challenge: It begins in the muck of the Missouri River bottoms and climbs a steep ascent through thick forest before plunging back down to earth. Those who take this hike will be rewarded with a look at ancient petroglyphs, as well as breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The cave hike is just one possibility among the 22 miles of trails in remote Indian Cave State Park.

An excellent place to take the family camping in modern camp areas or go solo and hit some of the more primitive camp sites. Lots of little trails to go on and sights to see. The actual cave, while interesting, is not much of a cave. You cannot go in the area where the Indians would have stayed, but stand right outside of it. But all in all, A lot of fun and highly recommended for a good camping time.
