 Our Favorites 

 Our favorite campgrounds are Kokee State Park, Polihale State Park, Kumu Camp, and Camp Naue.

  • Kokee State Park- Located on the west side of the island on top of a lush green mountain with stunning views and the best hiking trails on island. At 4,000 ft in elevation, it is a bit cooler up here compared to the rest of the island and can get down into the 40's at night during the winter. The Kalalau Valley lookout as well as the Waimea Canyon lookout are near by. Our favorite hike is the Waimea Canyon trail. From the different hiking trails you can see native plants, forest birds and insects. There is also seasonal plum picking and trout fishing.

  • Polihale State Park- Only accessible with 4x4. We DO allow people to go there in the 4x4's. The road leading to the campgrounds is a long and pot hole dirt road. The campgrounds are right along side the beach with picnicking areas and a beautiful sand beach. This is a must see with gorgeous sunsets and good views of the west cliffs of Na Pali Coast. You should only swim here during the summer months when it's calm. We DO NOT allow driving onto the beach, the beach sand here is very soft and it's very common for people to get stuck, and the high water mark is the vegetation line. The campsites are above the vegetation on the hillside.

  • Kumu Camp Beach Retreat- This is a private campgrounds and is located on the beach on the north east side of the island, making it a central location. This makes a good base camp if you donʻt have strict vacation plans and want to make up your plans as you go. Facilities here are a lot nicer than the county and state campsites.

  • Camp Naue and Anini county beach park- Located on the north shore. These are beautiful places to camp located on the north shore. These make great places to camp if your exploring the north shore.

  • The state has 3 campgrounds in the mountains that they say are accessible with 4x4 in "good conditions". (Kawaikoi, Sugi Grove, and Waikoali).  We DO NOT allow going to these. The roads up there can become impassable and dangerous if it's wet or if it's going to rain, and it rains up there a lot. There also isn't any facilities at these except a composting toilet.
