Just before we left home, I received a notice that because of budget cuts the state was no longer providing sheets for the beds. When we got there, there was a notice that for the same reason they would no be replenishing any supplies. I assume this means you need to bring your own toilet paper, soap, dishwashing, liquid, etc., as well as bed linen. There is an (expensive) general store in Hana, if you forget.
The cabin we stayed in was certainly rundown (a cabinet door was missing, part of one window frame was rotted, some paint was peeling, etc.) On the other hand, the setting is pretty, the park is beautiful, the cabins are reasonably comfortable (though warm on the nights we were there, without decent cross-ventilation), the stove and refrigerator worked, the bathroom was reasonably clean and it is awfully cheap. Our cabin had one large main room which includes the kitchenette, a table and two beds. A small additional room had 2 bunk beds. There was no functional barbecue.
For a family on a budget, it is quite a deal, especially since you can cook for yourselves.
Be sure not to miss swimming in the cave where a pool i fed by a freshwater stream!
