I really enjoyed our trip to the Oregon Caves; they were really cold inside, maybe you should consider bring gloves if you go, but be sure to bring a warm jacket (and we went when it was about 100° outside!). We had a nice tour,...More

We booked a cave tour for early July. Our ranger was witty, silly and did a great job of answering questions and handling the curious kiddos in our group. We ate an early dinner at the old school lunch counter downstairs. Highly recommend the blackberry...More
