The Entrance to 
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 

There are two toll booths.  Sometimes only one is open, sometimes both.   You will be able to tell by the orange cones.  At the entrance you will pay the entrance fee and in return be given a wonderful color map of the park showing some of the same information listed on our website.

If there is a long line of cars behind you, please refrain from asking the Park Ranger in the toll booth detailed questions, and do so at the visitor center just a couple hundred of yards ahead, instead.  The people behind you in line will thank you for that.

After the toll booth go straight ahead, which will bring you immediately to the Visitor Center. It is recommended to start your drive through the Park in this directions.  After the Visitor Center you can then continue the "Chain of Craters Drive", and go to the Sulphur Banks, Steam Vents, Jaggar Museum, Halemaumau Crater, Thurston Lava Tube, and Kilauea Iki Trail, till you come out right where you started. (From the view shown above, a road immediately to the left after of the toll booth). 

Entrance to the park (a seven-day permit) is $20.00 per vehicle, $10.00 for pedestrians or bicyclists. Fees for those arriving by commercial bus or tour vary by passenger capacity. Persons holding a Golden Age Passport (available to U.S. citizens or residents 62 years of age or older for a one-time fee) or Golden Eagle Passport are admitted free of charge.
  ** new higher fees as of summer 2017

Park is open 24 hours a day all year;
