Our family of two adults and two teenage boys have just got back from our Hawaiian holiday. We stayed here for 3 nights, and we were very pleased. Now I must state that we are cavers and trampers (hikers) from New Zealand so our idea of luxury are showers, toilets that flush and beds with linen. We found the cabin... More

We stayed in a cabin in the campground. The cabin had a double bed and a bunk bed, which worked for 3 people. The cabin was very clean and the bedding very warm and comfortable. The shared campground bathroom was also very clean and well lit. We careful when you book the cabin. There are usually two rates for the... More

Wow, these cabins are really amazing. Nice clean duvets, fire pit/bbq, comfy and warm bed. And so affordable. It was the perfect basis for exploring Hawaii. And walking distance to the crater. For the real experience: skip the hotels and stay in a cabin. Tip: Collect some wood at arrival and bring some matches.

I wanted my fiancee and I to be able to experience the volcano at night, but didnt really want to spend the big bucks that the Volcano House hotel was charging. I'm sure its nice and probably worth it to some people, but we just wanted a place to sleep after walking around the crater. I booked well in advance... More

Our group did road trip around the island and spent one night at the Volcano National Park campground. The cabins are small but nice and clean. Also the bathroom and showers are clean. Great location near the volcano.

The cabins are owned by Volcano House, and they are located within the National Park, just a short walk from the glowing crater. The cabins themselves are clean, with fresh sheets and towels. The shower block has recently been updated, and again the facilities were always clean. Overall, compared to the sky high prices around Volcano, this felt like a... More

This was by far one of the highlights of our trip. You can drive around the many lookouts and then head back to the cabin at night. The Jaggar Museum, where one can view the caldera is just a hike through a natural area where orchids and the native “ohi’a” flowers were blooming. The temperatures get rather cold at night... More

My party spent a night at one of the rustic cabins offered by Volcano House. The cabins are located about a 5 minute drive from the main hotel. The cabin was small, but held a twin and a bunk bed, lights but no plug ins, the bathrooms and showers were a brief walk. Outside the cabin was a picnic table,... More

We were in #4. Only #3 has an outlet so the main hotel at the park entrance charged up iPads for us while we ate dinner. Cabin beds were ok. Linens fine. Pillows worthless - hard and flat. Bathrooms not far away and plenty of hot water for showers.

We stayed in one of the cabins (#4) for 5 nights. They are basic with a double bed and two bunk beds so 4 people can sleep in them. Linens and towels are provided and you can get new ones if you see the cleaning person as they don't come into the cabin to clean or change any of these... More
