Underground waterfall, boat ride, formations to wow Indiana Cavern visitors

(News Release)
Cave filled with Ice Age bones has opened to the public
Corydon, IN – Indiana Caverns opened to the public June 15, 2013, joining Squire Boone Caverns and Marengo Cave to create one of the nation's most noteworthy caving destination.

In what is among the most significant archeological finds in the US in decades, an Indiana man just discovered a huge cache of Ice Age bones while digging out this portion of the Binkley Cave System.

In order to develop Indiana Caverns for visitors, life-long spelunker Gary Robson uncovered Pleistocene-era remains of dozens of animals.

The find includes prehistoric black bear, bison, peccary (flat-headed boar), fisher (cat-like animal), snakes, owls and other birds in such large numbers that the cave could keep several paleontologists excavating for years.

In fact, the area is now known as Big Bone Mountain. Robson and his team of cave developers have now transformed the phenomenon into a spectacular visitor experience. Complete details on Indiana Caverns, the nation's newest show cave, are available are available at
