Lava Beds National Monument


You will find over 700 caves and many volcanic features, which resulted from a tectonic plate slowly sliding beneath the Pacific Ocean under the continental plate (hundreds of miles away). Lava Beds sits on the northern flank of the Medicine Lake Shield Volcano. Here you will also find Native American rock art sites, historic battlefields, as well as excellent bird watching opportunities to the north at the Tulelake and Lower Klamath Wildlife Refuges.
