Indian Well Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"For hundreds of years people have camped on the flat at Indian Well. This is the only level, open ground nearby. Soft pumice covers most of the rocks, so it is easy to pitch a shelter and sleep on the ground. The flat is up high enough that visitors can see for miles. And there’s water in the Indian Well Cave, visible by daylight.
Lava Beds National Monument ﬁrst shocks you then rewards you. The land seems desolate and savage. The visitor center, where you can buy the Lava Beds Caves map book, is 0.5 mile from the campground. Going into the caves is no joke. Bring warm clothes (cold air collects in the caves). A hard hat for your head is a good idea, but at least wear a cloth hat. Never go alone. Come prepared for hot and cold camping."
