We’re finally going to visit the Lava Beds National Monument!
We will be camping at Eagle’s Nest RV park located 25 miles from the south entrance of the Lava Beds National Monument. The RV park has a playground, showers, flush toilets, horseshoes, wifi and programs at night.
I’ll lead a few hikes to check out the Lava Beds and Medicine Lake. There's more than 300 caves and Captain Jacks Stronghold to explore! This is a very remote area, so make sure you are willing to drive 5-6 hours before you rsvp. It’s an amazing area and your kids will have great memories. Hope you can make it!
Here’s some information from the site:

Planning on Going in a Cave?
There are over 22 developed caves and over, 700 discovered caves within Lava Beds National Monument. To learn more about these caves please visit the caving page. When caving we recommend that you wear appropriate safety gear including long sleeves, long pants, closed-toed shoes or boots, gloves, kneepads and helmets.
It is also recommended that everyone in your group has at least 1 flashlight. Flashlights can be checked out from the visitor center for free, from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
Helmets, gloves, kneepads, cave maps and flashlights can be purchased at the visitor center, but you are always welcome to bring your own.
We'll have lots on fun adventures there. I hope you and your family will be part of them!
