Lava Beds National Monument preserves one of the longest continually-occupied regions in North America, showcasing 73 square miles of important lava flow and archaeological sites throughout northeastern California, including sites connected to the region’s indigenous Modoc people. The monument district is preserved as a National Register of Historic Places site and showcases more than 700 caves, historic battlefield grounds, and indigenous rock art sites. Caves open to the public for exploration include Mushpot Cave, the park’s only lighted cave, and the easy-access Golden Dome, Lava Brook, Indian Well, Thunderbolt, and Catacombs Caves. A variety of visitor trails embark from the park’s visitor center, providing access to more cave and archaeological sites throughout the park’s backcountry areas.
