There’s No Other Cave In The World Quite Like This One In Oregon

Located at the Newberry National Volcanic Monument near Bend, the Lava River Cave is an incredible natural wonder — and an amazing day trip destination. This stunning cave is the longest intact lava tube Oregon, and one mile of it can be explored on a unique underground hike.

Visitors can access the caves from May – September. There’s a $5 day pass parking fee, and a visitor center where you can learn about the cave and rent gear.

The Lava River Cave is located just off Highway 97, about 12 miles south of Bend, within the Newberry Volcanic National Monument.
