The Oregon Caves is a place of adventure, wonder, and discovery. Join your guide and a small party of fellow cave explorers for a 90-minute tour. The route wends through narrow, twisting passages with ceilings as low as 45 inches! See strangely beautiful of stalactites, stalagmites, and other mysterious calcite flowstones as you bend and stoop through rocky passages. You will long remember your tour of the Oregon Caves. The route is moderately strenuous and not recommended for people with breathing, heart, knee or back issues. Children must be 42” tall or taller, no exceptions. The cave is 44 degrees year round. Dress warm. Tours are very popular in the summer. Arrive early to avoid long waits or closures. Reservations are available at Recreation.gov. Cave tours offered late March to early November. On the surface, explore the Oregon Caves Historic District, including the Oregon Caves Chateau, a National Historic Landmark. The Chateau offers lodging and dining, early March through early October. Trail heads in the historic district will lead hikers along paths through old growth Port Orford Cedar forests, scenic overlooks of the Siskiyou Mountains, and meadows filled with wildflowers.

They say there are about 500 stairs in the cave tour, which is true, only some of which are going down. So yes, if you get chest pain or out of breath when you walk a flight of stairs, do not go here. It's not...More

This is marble cave and has several "rooms". It is a 90 minute guided tour full of interesting facts and finds. While you are there go to the Chateau for lunch!

The drive up to the cave is winding and steep. There are few turnout to let cars pass by. It is not recommended for RVs over 20'.

April is a great time to visit the caves. The temperature inside the cave is 44-degrees year round, so that would not make a difference. There may be a little snow still in the area, but should not be much. April is... More
