    This is where you can see lava from when I was a child I saw was real. Powerful Ocean entry and walked for a while at a distance of 1 m, red lava. Lava situation changes daily, so check that the situation in State home page. It is recommended never to go in the evening!

    This was so awesome we came here 2 nights in a row, and we were staying on the Kona side. Don't bother wasting your time viewing the lava entering the ocean (about a mile away), hike up the hill and g...  more »

    Be able to walk on the lava, I went to Kalapana. I 3:00 PM Skala and don't put the information was, but maybe that's not. 3 when was open ago I arrived. Be slow and walk through the darkness, it was reckless, so no. You can see the lava from the sea nice, recommend's lava mountain walking. Lava Trek. You can see the lava flows near bad feet times takes more than an hour. Watch out for hot and dangerous.

Where to stay in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park provides two drive-in campgrounds: Nāmakanipaio and Kulanaokuaiki. The former is on the main road near the park's entrance and offers full services. The latter sits more deeply in the park, has limited sites, and does not have drinking water. You can also stake your tent at one of the primitive campsites on the park's coastal hiking trails. The park does offer lodging in the Volcano House, which delivers sweeping vistas of the caldera at the top of Mount Kilauea. The aptly named town of Volcano at the park's main entrance has a bevy of accommodations, including cottages, inns, bed and breakfasts, and lodges. This is your best option for combining convenient access to the park with a comfortable place to lay your head.
