Kaua'i county camping rocks

We have our tent set up under huge trees, next to the beach and it is gorgeous! This is tent camping at it's best. Bathrooms were well stocked and mostly clean. The other campers were quiet and respectful. We loved it. The showers are outdoors and not heated. But we swam with turtles and snorkeling was good!

Best camping

This is hands down the best camping you’ll find. It’s close to the water, dispersed, and absolutely breathtaking! I’ll come back here one day and maybe never leave.

Amazing views right from your tent!

We camped here off and on for a couple weeks.  We absolutely LOVED that we could camp as close to the ocean as we were able to, especially on such a beautiful bay.  This was also a wonderful bay to swim in.  Most of the cleared tent spaces also have a large picnic table nearby to use.  We were advised to pull our tent back for 1 night when the ocean levels were supposed to be extra high.  If you're friendly with the locals (who are friendly and pretty much live in the park) they may help you out with info and advice. The roosters were louder and started earlier here that any other place we stayed.  We loved them but others may find this annoying.  Showers were outdoors and semi-private.  We recommend having someone guard the entrance if you're at all worried about it.  We camped here at the end of December / beginning of January when the weather is extremely unpredictable.  It was QUITE an adventure to say the least - but we LOVE a Great adventure! Make sure your tent is VERY wind & water proof.  And know that if you do want the view right from your tent, you will have to carry your gear for a couple minutes since you can't drive right up to where you'll set up your tent.  

Make sure you get your camping permit well ahead of your trip!!!

North Shore Paradise

Anini Beach Park is home to a shallow section of reef with a sand bar reaching far out to it. A great place for snorkeling, fishing and crabbing, the campsites lie under a canopy of trees protecting most tents even on the stormiest of nights. Bathrooms and a fresh water shower make this well appointed campground even better. Picnic tables are everywhere and mobile so you can adjust them on the beach camp no matter where you are. Anini is closed on Tuesdays so the are can be cleaned and tended to. You can also set up larger camps on the grass a bit further from the beach but closer to parking. Permits can be acquired at the Parks and Rec offices (one in Lihue right by the airport) or by mail-in application which must be received by Parks and Rec a minimum of a month prior to your stay.

Perfect. Perfect. Perfect.

I doubt I will ever love a campground as much as I loved staying at Anini Beach. absolutely breathtaking. the reef goes on for miles. the waves are safe for little ones, and we saw countless fish, turtles and whales in the distance. There are a few locals who caused disturbance, but it’s monitored by rangers regularly so I never felt unsafe, unlike at Salt Pond. at $3/night, ON THE BEACH Hawaii camping where the waves are not going to sweep you away.... it’s PERFECT! tree cover for shade, view of the lighthouse, chickens everywhere eating all the bugs. Outdoor showers with privacy walls and bathrooms with running water and toilets. There is an outdoor sink to wash dishes and clothing. I cried when we had to leave.

Great hikes nearby!

Kauai is one of my favorite places. My husband and I went to Kauai for our honeymoon. We toured the island doing lots of hiking. We came to Anini Beach for the day and enjoyed laying by the beach, swimming and snorkeling. We also did a hike that was next to the beach. The beach was pretty busy, but luckily we got here early enough to get a spot to hang. The beach was a bit dirty, but not as dirty as some other beaches. Please pick up after yourselves!! The water was great, but there were no lifeguards on duty at this beach. I didn’t get in the water much because of this, and I was a little terrified of potential sharks! Highly recommend hiking nearby!! Bring food with you because there isn’t much food around the area.

Relaxing and peaceful

Besides Polihale, this is my favorite beach park to drive up and camp at on Kauai. It's a little off the main road so it's quieter than other campsites farther down. It's also safer than campsites nearer town. It's very peaceful and the water there is protected by an outer reef that makes it a family friendly swimming/snorkeling area. You don't have to worry about the tide coming in high to your campsite. There are bathrooms, drinking water, showers and a small boat launch. Enjoy!

Relaxing spot

We found a nice, shaded spot with great views. Weekday camping was pretty quiet, although I hear it gets busy on the weekends.
