Description

You will need a permit to camp here and water is non-potable, so it’s best to carry in what you’ll need. The weather is unpredictable and temperatures can vary from 40-70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Be prepared for rain at all times of year. If it’s stormy, winds can exceed 80 miles per hour with temperatures dropping well below freezing. Groups are limited to 12 people max. head here.

How cool is it to sleep at the bottom of volcanic crater? If you're on the island, check this out - the sunrises are unreal.
