Indian Cave State Park is a public recreation and historic preservation area bordering the Missouri River in Nebraska that 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. The state park lies ten miles (16 km) south of Brownville and eight miles (13 km) east of Shubert. The park's 3,052 acres (1,235 ha) straddle the county line between Nemaha and Richardson counties in the southeast corner of the state.
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.
