Love caves? If so, you should start planning your Pennsylvania camping trip to Woodward Cave and Campground right now.

Exploring Woodward Cave

Woodward Cave is one of the largest caves in Pennsylvania, and campers can stay right outside the entrance. Affectionately referred to as “The Big one,” this 48 degree limestone cave was discovered in 1926 and boasts five spacious rooms.

This beauty isn’t known for traveling far beneath the earth, but it is recognized for its extensive length. Ready to explore? Visitors can join a guided tour and venture through five unique rooms: Ballroom, Hanging Forest, Square Room, Hall of Statues, and Upper Room.

The Ballroom really functions as a ballroom and is used for square dances and banquets. If you live in the area, this might be something to add to the bucket list. The Hanging Forest is home to flow stone, ribbon formations, and the biggest collection of stalactites in the cave. Rare Helictites and Cave Coral can be found in the Square Room, and the Upper Room showcases a stunning 60-foot cathedral ceiling.

The Hall of Statues is the main attraction of Woodward Cave. Here you will find the Tower of Babel, an incredible 14-foot stalagmite!

After exploring the cave, head across the street and discover a magical wildflower meadow. One of the most extravagant meadows in Pennsylvania, this beautiful area boasts more than 12 different species of wildflowers.
