Located on Saddle Road, 10 miles from the Waimea side junction, and 44 miles from Hilo, this 6.83-acre camp is a great site for meetings, retreats, stargazing, or just studying nature. Nearby points of interest include the Nene Goose Sanctuary, Onizuka Center of Astronomy located on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa Observatory.
“Beautiful field with view of Mauna Loa leading to the ocean. Not too cold. Sometimes the marine inversion layer gets in the way, but usually clear. Easy grass field and almost never any cars or lights!”
