Tours of Lehman Caves are offered daily throughout the winter, except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
Winter Road Closures
The road to Park Headquarters and the Lehman Caves Visitor Center is plowed during the winter months. The Wheeler Peak Scenic Drive is plowed to the parking lot at the Upper Lehman Creek Campground. There is no snow removal beyond this point. The upper portion of the road closes depending on snowfall, usually November through early May.
Lower Lehman Campground remains open all year. Water is available at the Lehman Caves Visitor Center (about 3 1/2 miles from the campground), but not in the campground. The RV Sanitary Station is also closed.
Winter days can range from mild (50's) to cold (high in 30's). Nightly low temperatures are often between 10 and 30 degrees, sometimes dropping as low as -10 degrees.
Weather conditions can change rapidly, so come prepared for extreme conditions.
