Knowing it was an historical military camp, we were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations at KMC. We were not surprised with the gracious service because the military usually does things right. We had a 2 bedroom with full kitchen cabin. We used the kitchen for breakfast and snacking, but we could have produced a full, home cooked meal without any... More

Our one bedroom unit fit 4 of us comfortably. The bathroom was spacious as was the kitchen area (microwave and fridge provided with sink and cabinets). The fireplace was awesome as was the free wifi. The small grocery, cafeteria, bowling alley, bar, laundry and sport courts are all within walking distance. The reception and housekeeping staff were very friendly and... More

I should start by saying, we aren't campers...we aren't outdoorsy people...and we like to stay in nice hotels. I work for the DOD and co-workers recommended a stay at the KMC while we visited the big island so we decided to give it a shot. We were upgrade to a 2 bedroom cottage (we reserved a 1 bedroom) and when... More

Since we were travelling with a veteran we were eligible to stay here. (you must be military or dept of defense connected in order to make reservations). The rates are much more reasonable than other accomadations in the park and the location is so convenient for viewing the caldera late at night. We stayed in a 3 bedroom cabin which... More

Visiting Volcanoes National Park is a great experience. Staying inside the park is better. Staying in the military camp is the best! We were sponsored by my veteran father. It is reasonably priced, comfortable and far more interesting than a conventional accommodation. The grounds are extensive. It was great for our teenage and older offspring to have room to roam....

KMC was an outstanding choice as we returned to the Volcano. The cabins are rustic but fit right in at the Volcano. Service was good but checkin/checkout was a bit slow. The KMC offers a cafeteria, a mini-base exchange, a lounge and a gas station. Everyone can use the facilities, with the exception of lodging which is limited to military... More

It's not a 5 star resort; however, it offers decent lodging at affordable rates. When yo look at the services provided it's a steal of a deal. It has laods of onsite entertainment and services; bowling alley, theater, launder, general store, and much more. Tostay in town and the Volcano Lodge you'll easly pay atleast twice as much

We stayed in apartment AK. Our friends stayed in the one right next to us. I would suggest getting an end apartment as it had a bigger bedroom, theirs had a much bigger living room. We had a huge, comfy king bed. It was extremely comfortable, the sheets were very clean, the comforter and drape set was updated, and the... More

The staff at check in was friendly, informative and absolutely wonderful! We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom 2 full bath unit #94, SUPER NICE SURPRISE! We didn't need the third bedroom but it was a nice place to store all our luggage. Don't expect 5 star accommodations as the units are old BUT they were clean, plenty of pillows,... More

We didn't realize that the Kilauea Military Camp had a general store until AFTER we'd spent an arm and a leg at the general store in town. Lesson learned. Prices still are not what you'd call cheap, but at least a full dollar less expensive than the general store's prices.
