Cave Tours Closed for Season
Cave Tours are closed for the winter. Tours will resume April 26, 2014. All trails on the monument remain open.
Due to recent road work on Hwy 46 and steady rain, the road is muddy in spots. Exercise extreme caution while driving to and from the Monument.
Welcome to Oregon Caves Resource Management
The objectives of the resource management program are to 1) allow natural ecosystems both above and below the ground to function as they did when Oregon Caves was first discovered in 1874 and 2) preserve cultural landscapes, ethnographic resources, and historical objects and structures.
