Fees & Passes

Entrance to the park is free but there is a fee for a cave tour.

** 2022 Tour Season has begun. Tours are available 7-days per week through Labor Day **
** Tours will be limited and we expect long waits and sellouts during the summer months **


Reservations: A limited number of reservation tours will be offered on a weekly basis. Reservations are released every Sunday morning at 8:00 AM for the following week. Visit www.Recreation.gov.

Same day tickets: First come, first served tickets are available at park visitor centers. Be aware there may be long wait times and tickets may sell out.

We strongly recommend stopping at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center first in Cave Junction to learn current conditions and to buy tickets. It is a 45-minute, one way, drive to the park. Don’t be disappointed. Learn current conditions first at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center before you make the long drive.
