Oregon caves is a beautiful cave. There are beautiful unique formations in the cave. It has several areas of low clearance and quite a few steps. Highly recommend visiting this cave!

The drive up to the cave is winding and steep. There are few turnout to let cars pass by. It is not recommended for RVs over 20'.
