Backpacks are not permitted inside the Visitors Center or on the cave tour, so please leave these in your vehicle before entering.
Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park (Penn’s Cave, Inc.) strictly prohibits the use of model aircraft and drones on any part or area of its 1600 acres to protect and ensure the safety of our visitors, animals and private passenger aircraft that fly into and land at the Penn’s Cave Airpark.
Tours depart rain or shine.
Although there is minimal walking during the Farm, Nature & Wildlife Park Tour, we do recommend that comfortable walking shoes be worn. This tour is given rain or shine, so visitors may bring an umbrella for the short-distance walk.
The year round inside cave temperature remains a constant 52 degrees, so a jacket or sweatshirt is recommended. Comfortable shoes are advised.
Each cavern tour boat will hold up to 20-22 persons and travels at a slow speed as it glides thru the cave.
Since our all-water cave is an active, living cave, there will be water drips from time to time, but you will not become fully soaked. There are no big “splashes.”
Parking is FREE. There is a designated lot for buses, tractor trailers, RV’s & campers.
Overnight camping/parking is not permitted.
Cameras are welcome, but please be respectful of others if using a flash.
The cave tour is not handicapped accessible – there are 48 steep concrete steps that lead to the dock entrance where the tour boats are boarded. There are handrails on either side of the stairs. There is also a 300 foot paved inclined path that leads to the staircase. The same stairs and path are used to return to the Visitors Center following the tour.
