Since the cave's temperature is 35-40 F, it is a good idea to bring warm clothing and sturdy shoes. No drinking water is available. Picnicking is permitted.
Day-use pass (includes all Deschutes National Forest sites) $5 (per private vehicle). Lantern rental fee $5.
Hours: Self-guiding tours are available daily 9-4, Memorial Day-Labor Day; daily 10-4, day after Labor Day-Oct. 1; Thurs.-Mon. 10-4, early May-day before Memorial Day (weather permitting).
