Indian Cave Park

Named for a line of small recesses and a cave carved into sandstone river bluffs, Indian Cave State Park is found tucked into the southeast corner of Nebraska. Overlooking the winding Missouri River, this park signals a transition point, from an eastern deciduous forest to the Great Plains. Here along the Missouri floodplain, fast growing elms, cottonwood and willows rely on a tame Missouri River to survive. Today, river controls and fire suppression have allowed these trees to gain a foothold, creating new prairie woodland.
