Fort Rock Cave

The Fort Rock Basin has served as a vital part of the Native American lifestyle. Fort Rock Cave is near Fort Rock State Natural Area, and is the site of an archaeological discovery of several 9,000-year-old sagebrush sandals. This property serves as a reminder of the rich cultural heritage that has shaped so much of Oregon's history. The story of the Fort Rock Basin is told by the artifacts left behind and by the rich oral tradition of the tribes who claim the area as home.

Fort Rock Cave is a National Heritage site and is open only by a state park guided tour. The location is not available here on the website. Access is limited to two weekends per month from April 1 through November 1.

How to reserve
Tours can be reserved by calling LaPine State Park @ (541) 536-2428. Please leave your name, phone number, address and/or e-mail address and the dates you have in mind if you receive the answering machine, and we will return your call to the best of our ability. Tours are not confirmed unless you talk to a state park representative. Call at least 3 days in advance to schedule a tour. Tour groups are limited in size to 10 people and fill up quickly, so book as far in advance as possible.

Be prepared
Fort Rock Cave is a remote area and you will be required to walk at least 1/2 mile on uneven, dusty terrain. Weather is unpredictable, but usually hot or windy in the summer.

What to bring
Bring plenty of water and dress for any weather. The sun is intense, so sunglasses/sunblock/sunhats are recommended. Photos are allowed.

What not to bring
Pets are not allowed within the cave area, and it is recommended that you do not leave them in your car; so leave them home if you can.

On the day of the tour ...
All tours meet at the Fort Rock State Natural Area parking lot and then carpool to the site. Be sure to use the restrooms, as there are no facilities located near the cave site. Tours last 1.5 hours.
