Cave Junction

The Southern Oregon hamlet of Cave Junction sprang to life during the gold rush, but it was the discovery of the Oregon Caves in 1874 that put it on the map.

Now a national monument, the underground wonderland of marble halls is just one reason to visit this spot at the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains. Go wine tasting, float the Illinois River, visit the nearby Kerbyville Museum or take a hike in the national forest.
