Open May through September, at a length of about a mile, the Lava River Cave Interpretive Site is the longest continuous lave tube in Oregon. Created from an eruption about 80,000 years ago, you can walk down the 55 stairs to a combination of flat boardwalks, uneven surfaces, and stairways. The air temperature at the tunnel entrance ranges from about 32 degrees to around 45 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the time of year. Inside the tunnel, it is a constant 42 degrees. We strongly recommend wearing a warm jacket while exploring inside the cave. Check out the Deschutes River Woods area for great nearby lodging.
