Lava Viewing Tips

  • Bring lots of water.
  • Bring food if you're the type that gets hungry.
  • If you fry, bring sunscreen.
  • If you're going at night, bring flashlights and extra batteries.
  • If your lips chap, bring something for that too.
  • You might need to hike over the lava for hours so bring extra "slippahs". Just kidding, wear boots. The lava gets hot when you start walking across it.
  • Finally bring something to carry it all in and maybe some binoculars.

If you want to stay overnight, the Volcano House is located in the park across from the visitor center. (808) 967-7321 This place is kewl. You'll like it.
