Indian Cave State Park is a state park of Nebraska, USA, preserving a cave with prehistoric petroglyphs and the partially reconstructed village of St. Deroin established in 1853. The 3,052-acre (1,235 ha) park is along the Missouri River on the county line between Nemaha and Richardson counties. It is 10 miles (16 km) south of Brownville, Nebraska.
Some of the carvings within Indian Cave are believed to be several thousand years old, but their exact period and cultural affiliations are undetermined. The park offers horseback riding, hiking trails, camping and picnic facilities, fishing areas and winter skiing. The park contains part of the former Nemaha Half-Breed Reservation.
