The tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The cave is small in some places and difficult footing in others. If you have trouble walking or shortness of breath easily I don't recommend this tour. In addition there is a 45 minute drive to get to the caves, typically a wait of 30 minutes to 1 hour for a tour.... More

After three days of rain on the coast, We took a 2 hour drive to the caves. The drive was beautiful and the destination was even better. The lodge is a small 30 room hotel, with lots of rustic charm. The cave tours take about 1.5 hours but there are a few trails that are a must once you finish... More

A real treat in SW Oregon. This National Monument is off the beaten tourist track and that makes it a real find. No tour buses here and a comfortable number of visitors. The cave tours are limited to 15 people and are given by experienced and knowledgeable National Park Rangers. Try the candle-light tour for a really unusual experience. The... More

I was nice to learn about the caves. I toured them years ago as a teenager and brought my daughter back this summer to see them.

We decided that this would be an excellent adventure for ourselves and our 10 year old daughter. We were not disappointed. This was one of the best cave tours we have ever taken and we have done several previously. The tour is 90 minutes long, involves climbing over 500 steps, going up and down narrow winding passageways and can make... More

For your money!! This is a 90 min guided tour, with a lot of history and formations to see and hear about. There is a lot of steep steps and low hanging rocks and formations and some tight spots, so if you have a hard time with things like that, might want to skip it. The price is right at... More

First I would like to point out this is a cave. If you have visited a cave with bats from Colorado to California and all the states in between since 2006 or up I would not recommend going here. There is a bat disease that can travel cave to cave and will kill the bats. But don't worry, if you... More

Geology class comes to life. You must be able to bend your body to get around. Wear warm clothes. Takes 90 minutes. Don't forget a small camera.

If traveling along Hwy 199 through Cave Junction you may want to consider making a stop here. It is a little bit of a trip out at 19 miles of winding road but worth the time. Average cost of $10 per person/$6 for children. You get a guided tour down through the marble rock that comprises the Oregon Cave system.... More

I have been planning to make a trip to Oregon Caves from past 3 years, finally got a chance this July 4th Long Weekend. Send out an email for an off-trail adventure tour since I read a lot about it. Luckily one spot was opened and I was glad to found the space open. Melissa our off-trail tour guide was... More
