Fees & Reservations
Reservations for cave tours are on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended and tickets may be purchased for any tour scheduled the day of your arrival .
Please note that the Monument has no entrance fee, but there is a cave tour fee (expanded amenity). As such, the Interagency Annual Pass does not apply for cave tours. However, the Interagency Access and Senior passes get the cardholder half off a general cave tour. To enter the caves, the rates are as follows:

2013 Fee Free Days in the National Parks
Fee free days in the National Parks are designed to encourage people to enjoy their public lands. Expanded amenity fees (such as cave tours) are generally not waived on fee free days. Here at Oregon Caves we will post notifications when accomodating a designated fee free day that would include cave tours.
Please note that reservations are not accepted and tour size is limited to only 15 people.
Mark your calendar for these fee free dates in spring 2013:

Did You Know?
Computer bugs, slang for something gone wrong in a program, are actually named for a real insect. In 1947, technicians working for computer scientist Grace Hopper found a moth inside her computer. The trapped moth was making the machine malfunction. Once removed, they reported that the computer was “debugged”. They taped it onto her notes with a little joke that is now part of our everyday language.
