Pets must always be leashed. Pets are allowed only on paved areas such as the cave trail exit, the Chalet breezeway, or the parking areas. Pets are not allowed in the cave. It is not recommended that you bring your pets. There is limited shade and there is no pet boarding service. If you do bring your pet to the Monument, one person must stay with the pet at all times.
What about service animals?
Service animals are not permitted in the cave for their protection, their owners' protection, and the protection of the cave. Please visit Accessibility for more information.
Boarding your Pet
Did You Know?
Carbon dioxide mixes with water that condenses on the wall of the cave to create a very weak acid. Over long periods of time this "acid dew" eats away at the marble walls of Oregon Caves making the cave larger.
