Derrick Cave is a lava tube located in the remote northwest corner of Lake County, Oregon. The cave is approximately 1,200 feet long. It is up to 80 feet wide and 46 feet high in places. It was named in honor of H.E. Derrick, a pioneer rancher with a homestead 3 miles southeast of the cave. It’s hard to beat Central Oregon when it comes to great caving experiences, and one visit to Derrick Cave will fulfill all your subterranean explorer dreams.
