current weather

Cave Campground is a large, popular campground draped along the banks of Hat Creek.  The forest is denser here than at nearby Hat Creek Campground, so Cave Campground is cooler on hot summer days. Some of the sites are next to Highway 89 and suffer traffic noise.

Piped water (April-Oct), 26 campsites, pit toilets and flush toilets. 

Subway Cave (self-guided lava tube) is across Highway 89 from the campground.  This is a must-see.  Be sure to bring a flashlight.
