I have been before a couple times and was very happy to see the changes both man made and otherwise. I first visited in 1972 and at that time there was absolutely no moss or lichen nor trees growing on the lava at all. Now...More

I am almost embarrassed to admit that I did not know this park existed until this summer. It is such a great place to visit. Geographically, historically, and culturally of great interest. If you have the opportunity to visit this - do so!

Take the auto tour to numerous sights and activities throughout the lavabeds area. The walks are short, but each is a little different. We had fun taking photos of the sights, different forms of lava, water falls and the beautiful mountain scenery. This area has...More

This drive is exceptional for its wild wilderness experience from its high mountains, ocean front drive, lava bed experience, water falls, and a small hot spring about half way. We seen porcupine, black bear and may eagles right from the car.

Lovely and informative visitors centre although the visitor centre location halfway through the auto self tour means having to back track (would be helpful to have the pamphlets at the beginning of the auto route). Interesting stops to appreciate the affects of the lava field....More

I was not even aware of the events that this community experiences when a lava flow came and wiped out much of the community. This is a very interesting place to explore and learn about the history. If you are going up here be sure...More

The lava beds are a bit off the beaten path, but overwhelmingly amazing. We had a wonderful tour with Steve, who is a genuinely soft spoken knowledgable local. The local area is full of fun surprises, suspension bridges, hot springs, and even though it was...More
