Just three miles beyond the Volcano House is one of the most unique campsites to visit in the world. The historic Namakanipaio Campground offers a rustic, one-of-a-kind camping experience within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The campground is located 31.5 miles south of Hilo on Highway-11 at 4,000’ elevation. It is a large, open grassy area with tall eucalyptus and ‘ōhi’a trees. This campground has restrooms, water, picnic tables and barbecue pits. Campfires are permitted in the barbeque pits only. If there are more than 2 people in your party, you can expand to 4 people per site. Maximum stay is 7 days.

They allow campervans at any of their tent camping sites and work on a first come first serve basis so there are reservations avaiable but it rarely fills up.
