A Place To Stay
For Lava Beds Camping at
The Lava Beds National Monument

You have only one option for camping if you want to spend the night at the Lava Beds National Monument. After a long day of walking and crawling through the many caves, avoiding stepping in bat guano, going for a long hike, or exploring Captain Jack’s Stronghold, select one of the peaceful campsites at the Indian Well Campground.

The campground is located a short distance from the Visitor Center at the south end of the park and can accommodate RVs, trailers, and tents. No hookups are available but there is a good supply of drinking water. There is also an amphitheater and two restrooms and the picnic tables are constructed from lava stone. The maximum stay is 14 days.
