Act Now,
Preserve Forever

The Chateau is at risk! More than just a structure, the Oregon Caves Chateau serves as a critical economic pillar and a vital part of our national heritage—it stands proud among icons like Yellowstone and Yosemite. As one of the treasured ‘Great Lodges’ of the National Park Service, we urgently need to restore it to ensure the prosperity and preservation of the region.

This campaign is more than just about funds; it’s a call to action. It’s about inspiring generations to recognize and cherish the splendor and significance of the Chateau, a true jewel of the Oregon Caves National Monument.

Join us in protecting this architectural marvel, not just for today’s visitors but for the history of tomorrow.
