New boardwalk at Indian Cave State Park
08/15/2022

(KLZA)--Visitors to Indian Cave State Park that lies in parts of Richardson and Nemaha counties can now view the cave which his home to prehistoric Native Indian petroglyphs from a new boardwalk and viewing deck.

An historic bomb cyclone in March of 2019 saturated the area where the old boardwalk was located and caused a landslide.

The new boardwalk is ADA compliant with an 8-foot-wide viewing deck. The 5-foot-wide staircase accesses the boardwalk. The total length of the boardwalk is 420 feet. From the top of the staircase, the boardwalk extends 160 feet into the canyon.

The new area includes a seating area and informational signs. In addition to seeing the cave, visitors can also see the Missouri River. Interpretive panels are also in the works to inform visitors of the cultural aspects of the area and tell the story of the petroglyphs.

The $800 thousand project was paid for by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission's Capital Maintenance Funds.
