ACTIVITIES AROUND LAUGHING ALPACA

EXPLORE MAJESTIC SOUTHERN OREGON

Cave Junction is a small town and the Gateway to the Oregon Caves National Monument. It's the commercial, service, and cultural center for a rural community of small farms, woodlots, craftspeople, and families. The valley is in the basin of the Illinois River Valley and its tributaries -  nestled in the mountains known as the Siskiyou in the Klamath Range at an elevation of about 1329 ft. 

The Illinois Valley is frequently referred to as the "banana belt" of Oregon and is a favorite year-round vacation destination. Here you can enjoy culture, art, the spectacular beauty of the rivers, streams, and public forest lands available for hiking, backpacking, fishing, & hunting. This picturesque valley lies halfway between Grants Pass and Crescent City, making it only a short drive to the famous Rogue River, Oregon Coast, Siskiyou Mountains, and so much more!
