The Lava Lands Visitor is not to be missed. It is a beautiful building and surrounding grounds that showcase central Oregon's volcanic origins. There is also an interpretive walking path through the lava flow. There is much to see and do here.
Gotta check it out from the Hwy not that impressive but We advise all to take the time to Get up close and personal The visitor center is informative and the area is unique and worth a longer look than just a drive by
Lava lands has plenty of things to visit. You can drive up to the butte and view the surroundings. Especially the lava flow that goes all the way to the deschutes river and has changed it in places. There is also many hiking trails, one...More

It is not often that you see lava rocks, especially such an extensive amount of them in one place. It was great to walk among them, read about them and see the views from them. Worth the trip - take the time to do it.

The lava tube is an easy walk with the flashlight but uneven services so you just have to be careful and keep the light well lit. Good batteries. I think it was a mile down and a mile back. But you don't have to go all the... More
The lava tube is an easy walk with the flashlight but uneven services so you just have to be careful and keep the light well lit. Good batteries. I think it was a mile down and a mile back. But you don't have to go all the way to get an idea. That was indoors, so not hot. The outdoor trails were extremely hot because of the black lava rock around, we did not go very far on those. Hope that helps

The new bus that takes you up to the top of the butte costs, I think, about $3 per person. It's a new function of the park because there is so little parking up there and the road is narrow. You can stay up there as long... More
The new bus that takes you up to the top of the butte costs, I think, about $3 per person. It's a new function of the park because there is so little parking up there and the road is narrow. You can stay up there as long as you want; the bus comes and goes every 20 minutes until the last trip at 4:30 pm.
