Permits & Reservations


Tours are available without reservation on a daily basis. Reservations can help reduce wait times during summer afternoons mid-June through Labor Day. During the busy season wait times can reach two or more hours, and sellouts sometimes occur. Check in at the Illinois Valley Visitor Center in Cave Junction on the day of your visit for current first-come, first-served conditions.
