Reservations are not required but are recommended spring break and during the summer. Reservations are available online at Recreation.gov and must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance of your visit.
Same day tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis both at the park or at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center in Cave Junction.
If you do not have reservations we recommend checking on current tour waits and times available by stopping first at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center in Cave Junction. During summer months sellouts sometimes occur. Purchasing your same day tickets first at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center will save you time and assure you can get a tour.
Currently, there are no dining or lodging options available in the park. You are strongly advised to bring a picnic lunch or eat in Cave Junction before you drive to the monument.
The Oregon Caves Chateau, café and dining room is closed until further notice for repairs and rehabilitation.
