WHAT’S NEW ON HAWAII ISLAND?
A How-to Guide for Summer Camping on Hawaii’s Active Volcano
Hidden within a fragrant eucalyptus grove, Volcano House’s Namakanipaio
Campground offers summer visitors three ways to “glamp” or camp (at
three levels of cushiness), all inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,
the state’s number-one attraction. Whether a cozy, one-room camper cabin
that sleeps four; a fully equipped (and pre-setup) rent-a-tent with an
8-inch memory foam mattress, hotel linens, cooler, lantern, and camping
chairs; or a simple campsite lot for you to BYOT (bring you own tent) –
Volcano House’s Namakanipaio Campground makes camping accessible to
everyone. Of course, if camping isn’t your preference, Volcano
House has 33 historic hotel rooms where views of Kilauea’s glowing
Halemaumau crater are visible while you relax and unwind.
