51 campsites with picnic tables and grills, no open campfires allowed, water only in summer or in the visitor center, price $15 a night, no pets on trails - only in campground and parking lots on the Loop road.

Only $8 in the off season.
There are several campsites that are level enough for a camper. Others are very small, more suitable for tents. Sites include picnic tables.
It's a quiet place, excellent dark sky, saw the Milky Way.
Cell signal is very patchy, worked one moment and then no signal the next.
Only 4$ if you have the America the beautiful pass. Self pay station by the park entrance.Report Check-In
arrived around 4pm on Tues and all sites were full. we drove east to blizzard Mt Road for a nice spot. then the property owner, Monty, showed up. he let us (2 camper vans) stay but begged us to post that others shouldn't stay there. we went back to lava flow in the morning and plenty of sites were available. it turns out we saw a couple big rigs that parked overnight in the visitor center parking lot. loved the loop drive on our bicycles.Report Check-In
Today, Thursday, September 7th, all the large sites were full by noon. Some larger trailers managed to squeeze in smaller sites, but many people were forced to turn around and leave without a site shortly after noon. But I've never seen so many large motorhomes with toads trying to get into an NPS campground b before.
Anyone in a camper van need not arrive that early.
Checkout is 11, but oddly many people did not leave until noon. No one was enforcing checkout time.Report Check-In
It’s cool camping in and around the lava rocks. Sites are small and close together. Although hot in the day, the wind picked up at night.
Sites are first come. People were still coming in after sunset and secured a spot.Report Check-In
no one at the ticket booth to check my america the beautiful pass. instructions for camping was to find a spot, park, then return to the kiosk and pay for the night. it was only $8 a night, no water, pit toilet, trash drop off, caves were closed. very hot during the day I parked at the closed visitor center and sat under tree shade to cool off during the heat of the day.Report Check-In
Lots of campsites, only about ten were in use. Only cost $8 because water was still turned off for the season. Campsites have a picnic table and charcoal grillReport Check-In
Lovely little site for tent camping. No wood burning at the site, but propane is fine. Night sky is about as much as you can ask for.Report Check-In

With america the beautiful cards you get 50% off. So I paid $4 at the machine. Beautiful campground, pit toilets only. No water. No wifi. No cell service.
At the visitor center there is water and restrooms.
Great spot especially as we did not get charged as there is no running water in early season (end of April , start of May ) . Pit toilets and bbq and table at each site . Can accommodate big rigs .Report Check-In
