Lehman Caves may only be entered with a guided tour. Cave tours are offered daily, year-round, except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Park rangers lead all tours and explain the history, ecology, and geology of the caves. Two different guided tours of Lehman Caves are offered -- the Lodge Room Tour and the Grand Palace Tour. Cave tours regularly sell out. Reservations through Recreation.gov are strongly recommended.
Lodge Room Tour
Grand Palace Tour
- In person at the Lehman Caves Visitor Center upon arrival (same day only).
(We strongly recommend that you make a reservation instead.)
- In advance via Recreation.gov
Same day reservations are not accepted. Please plan ahead, as tours sell out regularly in the summer and around holidays.
Cancellations, reservation changes, and refunds are handled through recreation.gov.
If you book a Grand Palace tour you do not need to book a Lodge Room Tour. The Lodge Room duplicates half the rooms on the Grand Palace Tour.
