Lava River Cave

Thursday marks the opening for availability of timed reservation tickets for parking at Lava River Cave. Reservations made Thursday will be for those visiting starting Aug. 1.

The Forest Service announced last week it will implement a timed reservation system for parking in the Lava River Cave parking lot.

The change to a timed reservation system is being made in response to increasing visits to Lava River Cave, over 70,000 per year, that cannot be accommodated with the parking at the cave, according to the Forest Service.

In recent years, visitors have been parking along the roadways outside of the cave while waiting for a parking space to open causing “serious and increasing” safety concerns for the public and the staff at the site. 

Starting Thursday, 50% of the timed reservation tickets will be available on a rolling 30-day booking window. The remaining 50% of timed reservation tickets will be available on a 24-hour booking window starting July 31.

From this Thursday through Saturday, reservations will be available for August 1 arrivals. Reservations made on Sunday, July 3 become available for August 2 arrivals, and so on.
