Kilauea Military Camp (KMC) is now open to eligible patrons months after the eruption of Kilauea Volcano.

KMC, a Morale, Welfare and Recreation facility on the island of Hawaii, reopened for business Sept. 22 following Kilauea Volcano’s summit activity within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

A post-event assessment of KMC property was completed in August, according to the facility’s Facebook page.

“We are happy to report m i n i m a l d a m a g e t o o u r historic facilities and lodging units,” the post stated. “KMC staff is in the process of prompt cleanup of camp buildings and grounds, and fresh resupply to retail outlets and Food & Beverage operations.”

KMC sits on 52 acres with many historic touches that have been preserved. KMC offers a variety of lodging and amenities.

Patrons may partake in a variety of activities during their stay such as hiking, cultural events, tennis, golf, bowling, as well as KMC tours of the island’s attractions.

KMC facilities include a bowling center and snack bar, a cafeteria and lounge, banquet facilities, a general store, recreation lodge with arcade games, pool tables, table tennis, basketball and tennis courts and a fitness center.

KMC is open to all active and retired military, members of the Reserve and National Guard, active and retired Department of Defense civilian employees, dependents and sponsored guests.
