Geology

Geology can be a complex and confusing subject, even for trained geologists. As with many sciences, geology has a lot of befuddling lingo and jargon, but without some sort of guide with which to describe what we observe, interpretation is impossible. We hope you can use our website as a guide to learn more about Oregon Caves before or after you visit. Lets discover some of the "unusual scientific interest and importance" of the Oregon Caves.

Did You Know?

Horse riders rode about 12 miles to Cave Camp located next to the entrance of Oregon Caves.

Up until 1922 the only way to get to Oregon Caves was on a 12 mile trail from the town of Williams, Oregon. Once at Oregon Caves visitors explored the cave and spent the night at a camp outside the entrance to the cave.
