Lava Beds National Recreation Area Increases Access for Visitors

The Lava Beds National Monument, which sits in a remote area of Siskiyou County near the Oregon border, has increased access for visitors following partial closures during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Beginning May 27, 2020, all park restrooms and Cave Loop Road will open, along with the roads to Schonchin Butte and Fleener Chimneys. The visitor center and campground will remain closed.

While the park isn’t near any major municipality and the area is devoid of many Coronavirus cases, the healthcare facilities in the region would have difficulties dealing with a huge surge in visitors.

The Lava Beds National Monument is a land of turmoil, both geologic and historic. Over the last half-million years, volcanic eruptions have created a rugged landscape dotted with diverse volcanic features. Lava tube caves, Native American sites, historic battlefields and a high desert wilderness experience highlight an adventurous trip to the park.
