Stay right inside the park in a compound in reasonable, but dated, accommodations. A military connection, however loose, is required. The on-site facilities are extensive - bowling alley, movies in the Hqs bldg, etc. The housing is clean and the cafeteria served a variety of foods. The cool nights were delightful.

The cabins have recently been renovated. The one we rented had a working fireplace, a jacuzzi tub and is within walking distance to the caldera. Steam vents are visible everywhere. Great staff. Food is passable and expensive for the quality.

The Kilauea Military Camp, also called KMC, is an amazing deal. You can only stay here if you are military or traveling with someone on the military. We were with my aunt and uncle who are both retired military and we were able to stay here. I couldn't believe we were able to stay right in Volcano national park and... More

I loved our little stone cottage. We stayed for one night and KMC wasn't luxurious it was totally functional and convenient. Check in and out was a bit slow but the accommodations were fine and we slept well. Very quiet. It was a lot cooler than the Kohala Coast so glad I brought long pants and a sweatshirt! The general...

I'm glad we only chose to stay here 2 nights. If you have the funds, do yourself a big favor and stay at Volcano House. KMC has the worst, most unprofessional staff you will ever encounter. It goes down hill from there. The noise coming from the complex is obnoxious until as late as 1am from the locals who come... More

The whole facility is open to the public. Need military ID if you want to stay in their lodge. It is located inside Volcano National Park, about 1 mile from the park's entrance. The have a few restaurants. much cheaper than anywhere else we had eaten before on Big Island.

We stayed at The Volcano House but we came here a couple times for drinks and breakfast. The Camp itself is very pretty and well kept. A lot of history to it...built in 1916. You can get a free walking map at the front desk to tour the grounds and buildings. They also have a few tours to book if... More

The military camp was built in 1916. It was a very clean and nice cabin. If you are expecting a 5 star resort this is not for you...but if you are looking for a clean and nice place with a lot of history this is for you. The staff was very attentive to our needs. When staying here you are... More
