When I was in eight grade we had a big field trip to Gettysburg, an Orioles baseball and to Penn’s Cave. It was something we waited for in elementary because everyone talked about it. Even now into my thirties I remember this trip fondly and could not wat to bring my son. Hope you enjoy this “Visit Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park in Pennsylvania” article!

Penn’s Cave House is a historic structure, once used as a hotel from 1885 until 1919. It is located on the property of Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park at Gregg Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania. One of the benefits of this attraction is the quality of the grounds.
If you choose the Cave tour you will have to descend down stairs ( pictured above). I only mention this because I believe my Mother might have issues with these when she had her hip replaced. Once you are down they gather you on a boat. This is one of the best tours because usually you need to walk underground and that can be slippery at times.
My son enjoyed the tour so much because they educate while telling stories. The Cave creations are lite up and some even look like everyday objects. While I could share pictures of the different formations I really want you to come and visit. I will let you in on a little secret. They boat you out of the caves to view a beautiful nature area, complete with Elk.
