Here's the thing. I don't even like camping. But these cabins won me over with their real beds and comforters. They were simple but awesome. Clean. Toasty warm even with 45 degree nighttime temps. Inside and outside lighting. One electrical outlet. Bathrooms super close to all 8 cabins and accessible only to those staying in cabins (keys necessary). The bathroom... More

Stayed overnight at the Kilauea Volcano in the Big Island. Booked this cabin through Volcano House. It is located about 3miles from the main lodge and is basically a one room cabin with a double bed and a bunk bed. Public bath and washroom are close by and each cabin has a place outside with a picnic bench where you... More

The campground has 12 spaces for tents, 11 of which are near either the highway or the bathroom. Both the road and the bathroom are noisy if you are in a tent but likely quiet if you rent a cabin. Basically, I would never again tent-camp here.

WE loved our night there. Great little cabins & clean washrooms. We collected wood on our way up & had plenty for our firepit. The 2 days we spent there were unforgettable & I would recommend this for sure. The crater overlook at night & the stars.. Unbelievable and humbling. Would I go back ? Absolutely !

As everyone else has said this place is cozy and clean. It's a half mile moderate walk to the Jaggar Museum and crater overlook.. You can see the red haze at night. You do need a powerful flashlight as the trail is hard to see in the dark.

These cabins are relaxing, they are very clean, we were tasty. We camped with our 5 year old daughter, we stayed for 2 nights during the mid point of our Big Island Trip (10 days total on the Island). This was everyone's most memorable spot. The blankets were plenty warm, clean, and the beds were nicely made. The guy who... More

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.
