This hidden spot is located in Southern Illinois at Cave-In Rock State Park. The entrance to the cave is a 55-foot hole. It offers a view of the Ohio River below. Once inside the cave you’ll be able to trek through over 150 feet of space along a 60 foot bluff. Even though the cave holds a sordid history of housing outlaws fleeing from law officials, it still retains its beautiful appeal.
The state of Illinois acquired the area where Cave-In-Rock sits, way back in 1929. The area consists of 204 acres. Just above the cave, visitors can enjoy a picnic or just take in the views over the Ohio River.
