Indian Cave State Park is a public recreation and historic preservation area straddling the county line between Nemaha and Richardson counties on the Missouri River, 10 miles (16 km) south of Brownville and 8 miles (13 km) east of Shubert, Nebraska.[3][4] The 3,052-acre (1,235 ha) state park preserves a cave with prehistoric petroglyphs and the partially reconstructed village of St. Deroin established in 1853 and part of the former Nemaha Half-Breed Reservation.[5]

Some of the carvings within Indian Cave are believed to be several thousand years old, but their exact period and cultural affiliations are undetermined.[2] The park offers horseback riding, hiking trails, camping and picnic facilities, fishing areas and winter skiing.[5]
