Would not return, even if it was free. Spend your money elsewhere. Terrible customer service. 60's style accommodations. Food is worse than camp food. Rude staff. Should have stayed at Volcano House. Do not stay here.

My husband and I stay at KMC at least 3-4 times a year; whether it be by ourselves or taking other couples who are visiting the island. Up until this visit, we have never had any issues with KMC. This visit, however, was different,...and terrible. Upon our arrival at checkin, a new gal was checking us in and appointed us...

This lodge is restricted to military members so I understand it's not available to most people but if you have a friend or family member that is/was military - stay here and save about 80% on your hotel bill all while exploring the wonderful island of Hawaii. It's not the most modern place but it's clean, quaint, and perfectly located...

The house at the camp was very well keep up for an old historical building on the military recreation facility. We had a great dinner near by were the volcano glow could be seen from our table. The vase expansive park has lots to see and the waterfall near Hilo were great. Lots to do not enough time.

Have stayed at Kmc six times and always enjoyed. The resort is 100 years old but the facilities are kept up within historical guidelines. Comfortable rooms and nice recreation amenities. Food is provided in a dining room along with a bowlin alley snack bar. As a 24 year retiree, I am proud of this facility.

Visited the bowling alley with friends and family. Small bowling alley that is dated but that does not keep you from having fun. Can be a very busy place. Is open to the general public so it is well used by locals. Try to avoid the weekend evening hours

As a British veteran I am very conscious of the privilege of using KMC. It is brilliantly placed in the National Park and we have just finished a visit here, 15 years since the last one. I would say in general things have improved over time and we were pretty impressed with the deal. The 2bed cabin was spacious and...

Didn't stay here but spent a couple of hours 'enjoying' the facilities while waiting for our tour to commence. Facilities are very dated, food is terrible and the whole place seems to be slowly decaying and falling apart. I am very happy that we were staying elsewhere.

Had stayed at KMC many years ago (1983 - 1986) and loved this place. Returned in 2016 for 5 nights and not much has changed. Wonderful little cabins in Volcano's National Park. We had a 1 bedroom with bath, fireplace and a beautiful "glow" of the volcano each night. There is a well stocked P.X on site, Laundry room, game...

This place was recommended by a friend when I told them we were heading to the big island. It's a real nice place to stay/visit if you are military (active/retired/reserve) and/or a veteran. A rather large complex with loads of cottages in various sizes, a cafe, coffee shop, bowling, outdoor recreation, tours, etc. Located inside the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,...

“Check as to where you are housed prior to accepting your room so you are not next to a full bunkhouse; cabins are quieter than others.”
