The Oregon Caves is a place of adventure, wonder, and discovery. The experience of exploring the caves; twisting and winding passage is experience worth a visit in its own right. So too is the other-worldly beauty of stalactites, stalagmites, and other mysterious calcite flowstone formations within. Less obvious, the cave wends beneath the Siskiyou Mountains, offering an inside-out vantage of the most geologically complex region in North America. Hidden within too, these caverns shelter more indigenous (only found here) cave species known anywhere west of the Mississippi. Come feel the wonder of this underground treasure buried deep beneath the folds of southwest Oregon's Siskiyou Mountains.

Amazing!

Amazing experience! A little worried about the small spaces and amount of steps, but turns out it was a pretty easy trek. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

There are awesome rooms in the cave. The tour is 90 minutes and well worth taking. There are 500 steps so you need to be able to climb them. This is the largest marble cave in the USA. The road from Cave Junction takes about 40 minutes but don't miss this beautiful cave.

Our family (13yo daughter and 10yo boy-girl twins) thoroughly enjoyed our tour lead by earnest, well-informed Justin. He did an excellent job explaining the geology of the cave, including the length of time the formations take. Well worth the long drive to this stunning, remote pocket of Oregon.

Highly recommended for avid cave lovers. Make sure you take the full tour. We were going to take the night lamp tour but that only goes half way, you would be missing so much more. The tour guide was great. Not for little children under a certain height..I can't remember what that was though so you should call in advance.... More

Our family loved seeing all the natural formations in the cave. It has beautiful marble as well. This is our second cave this year and we were glad we did not pass on it. Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable and kind. He made the tour so much fun while really educational too. A must see. Just leave plenty of... More

It was interesting once you are inside the cave. The information center is small but quite nice for kids, with interesting displays and information about the caves. There are all kinds of rock formations inside the cave and the ranger did a good job keeping us interested. The cave is really cold inside so be sure to wear a warm... More

We have passed by the sign to the caves numerous occasions my whole life, each time I've wished we'd planned ahead to drive into the park. Finally we had the opportunity! We were on a road trip with our two grandsons, six and nine years old, this seemed the perfect time to stop and experience the caves. It was fantastic,... More

The road up is worth the cave at the end. When we were in the cave some of the bats swooped down and gave us a show. It gets really cold inside the cave so don't go in shorts and a tank top. there are a lot of steps but not to rigorous and the formations are fun to see.... More
