Volcano is very small (population less than 2,500), and the main reason that people visit this town is because of the Kilauea Volcano and Volcano National Park. Because of this, most of the information provided here is specific to the park, not the town.
The following link to the
Town of Volcano provides general information about the population’s demographics.
A good place to begin doing some research on the park is on the
National Park Services: Hawaii Volcano page. This is probably the best all around site on the web, providing some great information about things such as history, activities, accessibility, nature & science, and more.
For information about the volcano itself, more specifically its eruption history and eruption details, check out this
Kilauea Volcano page.
Another good resource for Volcano is this
Visitor Information and Photos page. Here, one will find useful links such as directions, entrance fees, camping regulations, and more.
