The Camp at Howling Dog Guest House, sits at 1400 feet elevation with views of Hilo airport and the coastline. Enjoy comfortable temps in the 60s-80s year round. Wake to sunrise over the ocean and fall asleep gazing at a billion stars. The camp is a large grassy area surrounded by bamboo for privacy and your site has a covered platform for the tent overlooking the coastline. Parking space for 2 cars. Once parked you will walk past the camp base canopy containing the camp kitchen with filtered potable water at the sink prep table, camp charcoal grill and table. Camp base also has solar electricity and is a great place to hangout on rainy days, charge your devices and enjoy playing bored games. Next to the kitchen canopy is the bamboo dressing room where you can enjoy a hot nature shower. Nearby we have provided a camp fireplace (within local fire laws) perfect for chilly nights and smores. We have fire logs available for a fee. Your campsite platform is a short 50 foot walk across the soft mossy lawn where you can play volleyball, cornhole, baseball pitch or other yard games; or just relax sunbathing and stargazing. Bring your own tent or utilize our 5 person tent with small screen area facing the view. For the utmost in glamping convenience your outhouse with pump-flush porta potty is only a couple of steps away from your tent. You can take a walk on an old overgrown sugar cane road among the strawberry guava trees and discover abandoned relics from another era. Walk down the road to the stream or head down the hill to Honolii surfing beach or Hilo town or other island adventures!.

It was AMAZING! The accommodations were great and the view was to die for. Unfortunately it did rain on us, but Steve had already prepared for it by putting up canopies for us. We loved that we were far enough away from town that we still felt like we were getting away from it all, yet close enough to get to things if needed.

We will definitely be staying here again and we will recommend it to all our friends.
