We stayed one brief night and arrived late / left early in the am. Overall the beds & bedding were comfortable. However, we did find it cold at night and the scent from the air freshener bothered us. The unit and bathrooms were clean and it was a very short drive back to the volanco.

The rooms at the Volcano House were more than we typically spend for an evening, however, we did want to stay in the park. Packing our camping gear would have costed us another $50 in luggage fees - so the cabins seemed to be our best choice. We were very happy. Yes, $80/night is a lot for a cabin, but... More

Cannot wait to return to Hawaii and these fantastic, comfortable cabins. The kids had a fire then took a late night walk to Jaeger Museum to see the lava spattering. It was magical and we will definitely return to these cabins.

Everything is as advertised but kind of dense. Had a great time. Free coffee in the lobby of the Volcano house. Clean bathrooms and hot showers. Tent area has room for groups with large Pavillion and fire place.

I booked a cabin for my family of four almost a year in advance so we could show our 3 and 6 year olds the peacefulness and serenity of Volcano Nat'l Park after a hectic Christmas in Waikiki. One month before our trip they called and cancelled our reservation due to "hazardous trees". Now, nearly the entire island is booked... More

We stayed in the cabins (not the tent camping) at the Namakani Paio campground and...wow...so clean and well maintained! Definitely the nicest, most convenient, "camping" I've ever done. I don't mind actual camping, but we didn't want to have to pack tent, sleeping bags or other gear for our trip to Hawaii so this hit the spot. Bedding is included,... More

The cabins are exactly as advertised and very clean. I could smell remnants bug spray and appreciated the efforts of whomever cleaned the cabin to help combat bugs. It is a rustic cabin or "almost camping" as my kids put it. We stayed in cabin 3 which had a plug for us to charge our phones & tablets and was... More

Cabins are as advertised: two twin bunks and a full bed, with towels and sheets. They were clean and had both interior and exterior lighting with a grill and firepit (firewood is available for purchase at about $13/bundle). Despite other reviews saying otherwise, we did have an outlet in Cabin 6. Also, bathrooms were kept clean and were accessible only... More

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
