The Kaneohe marines corps housing office is the main office for both Kaneohe and Camp Smith. Camp Smith members you can register in Kaneohe for housing but Camp Smith is located in Halawa Heights in Aiea. However, you can also call Navy housing which has more locations near Camp Smith. Makana housing for Camp Smith folks is located over in Aiea, Pearlridge near Newtown.

If you work on Camp Smith there's no commissary. Your nearest commissary is the Pearl Harbor Naval commissary about 15 min away in PH (next to Airport). Or Hickam AFB next to HNL.
If you live in Mililani, Waikele, Ewa, Makakilo, and Kapolei your nearest commissary is Schofield.
If you live in Windward side your nearest commissary is Kaneohe MCB.
You will probably want to know where all the commissaries are on Oahu because you'll find food is outrageously expensive here. I drive 11 miles to PH just to go to the commissary and we save about 30% on the bill. 👍
