Being a retired military spouse, I was able to enjoy staying at KMC with my best friend and her husband. Since one pays according to rank, we stayed in a cottage with ensuite bedrooms-the main bedroom has a TV, a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room with a fireplace and TV. It's a throwback to the 50's but clean and functional. Above all, the price is right and affordable compared to the rest of the Big Island hotel rates. The USPS is right there in the camp and very convenient for shipping souvenirs back home. The camp is well-kept, has a small gasoline station, an entertainment/recreation center, a cafe/restaurant-foods/prices are decent, a convenience store and best of all, it's INSIDE the park and just 22 miles to/from Hilo.
