The Little Known Cave In Nebraska That Everyone Should Explore At Least Once

Some of Nebraska’s greatest features are the vastly under-appreciated historic natural sites. One in western Nebraska has a long and fascinating history that stretches back thousands of years, and you can still get a look at it today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Visit this unique cave and all of the other fascinating bits of Ash Hollow on Hwy. 26, southeast of Lewellen. The grounds are open year-round, but the visitors center, museum, and cave are only open Memorial Day to Labor Day. You’ll need a NE parks pass to enter the site, and admission to the visitors center is an additional $2 for adults and $1 for children. Find out more here from Visit Garden County.
