Overview

Description

Summary

Indian Cave is a pristine area, devoted to camping, hiking and backpacking, picnicking, nature and wilderness activities. Located 10 miles south of Brownville and 5 miles east on S64E, Indian Cave boasts a variety of hardwood trees, shrubs and other flora. There are 22 miles of hiking trails in the park.


Attractions

Autumn is particularly spectacular here. Horseback trail rides are also available in season. History buffs will enjoy the restored schoolhouse and general store from the old river town of St. Deroin, where old time crafts are demonstrated on weekends from May through October.. A group picnic shelter may be reserved. A ramp offers river access for boaters or you can put in at nearby Brownville SRA.


Campground Notes

Indian Cave State Park is located on the banks of the Missouri River. Perhaps the biggest attractions are the majestic hardwood forest and the hills that overlook the wide and winding river.

The RV campground can handle 134 units with 30-amp. electrical hookups (22 of which also have 50-amp.). Modern camping is open May 1 - October 31, even longer, if weather permits. Primitive camping is open year-round. The tent camping area extends among the scenic hills. Tent campers have their own showers, as well as a water hydrant and electrical hookups. Grills and ground-level fire rings are provided. There are Adirondack shelters along the trails for back-to-nature enthusiasts. For horse lovers, Indian Cave has a special camping area for those who bring their mounts to the park.
