Indian Cave State Park

Indian Cave State Park

Nemaha/Richardson Counties

Biologically Unique Landscape: Indian Cave Bluffs. It features a prairie-forest ecotone, where semi arid forests meet grasslands.

Looking for Butterflies: Indian Cave State Park is an excellent place to view woodland butterflies, particularly Zebra Swallowtails, Henry’s Elfins and the oak feeding Duskywings (Horace’s, Juvenal’s and Sleepy).

Special Instructions: The scenic overlook and surrounding area are productive for forest dwelling species while species preferring more open areas can be found at the southern end of the park.
