Indian Cave State Park

Beautiful park with a variety of attractions situated on the banks of the Missouri River.
Beautiful vistas of the Missouri River are combined with gently rolling hills and limestone cliffs, all within a very well maintained state park. A tour of this park is worth far more than the $5 day pass.
The unique one way paved roadway leads through some beautiful valleys of mature trees and meadows.
An occasional peak at the river through the trees makes me think about the Natives observing Lewis and Clark as they struggled up the river. It would have been very easy to observe the Corps without being detected just a few feet from the water.
The petroglyphs in the limestone are a real treasure to see. I can only imagine when and why the Natives would have devoted the time and effort to leave this artwork.
