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.

We had never been tunneled inside caves of this magnitude. Great fun adventure. Paid tours inside the caves of 90 minutes long are available. There are some free tours around the site which do not include the caves. The drive up the mountains to the...More

We did both the Candlelight and General introductory Cave tour. Both are not only a great value but give 2 separate viewings of an incredible discovery from the 19th Century The Caves & the Chateau are worth the stop off the Redwood Hwy. 20 miles...More

A great guided tour through a long cave with ample lighting. The tour is about 90 minutes and I mention the lighting because it is well done to provide a perfect view of the cave features. The cave is a constant 44 degrees so even...More

We took the regular tour ( 1 1/2 hours) and the night candlelight tour (about 45 minutes). Both are great and only $10. The night tour is only offered once per day and limited to 12 people so get your tickets in the morning.

No. Unfortunately I did not see any ADA Compliance for that. Small passages prevent it.

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
