Stunning view from camp

This is the only place I will stay when I come back to Maui. Tentalos are a far cry from roughing it, but they're also awesome. Much cheaper than a hotel. Well-kept grounds are similar to a city park. Close access to the beach and water activities. You can rent surfboards, paddle boards, kayaks.…

Close to beach and road

Campsites are fairly close together and not super well marked/differentiated between, but there is plenty of room. The showers are not enclosed, and the bathrooms are across the main road, but were nice. The campsites are very close to the main road, so you hear cars at all hours. There were also a…

Convenient Location

This campground has extremely close access to the beach, which is nice, and it's not far from Kailua. The individual sites aren't really marked, so it feels a little like a free for all, especially if you're arriving on Saturday. The area where all of the tent spots are is all sand, so be prepared…

Nice and tucked away from road

There are cabins and apartments for rent if you have base access. I stayed in a cabin near the beach, it was small and clean. Only problem is the reservations are booked for about year out, so you never know what kind of weather you'll get when the reservation finally comes along. In our case it…

Not super busy

This rec park is one of the least visited since the area is no longer a busy as it used to be. There are showers and bathrooms with beach access, but I prefer to go to other beaches to swim.

There are few sites on island that are not connected to the beach. This place offers different features that make for a fun stay. It can rain a lot in this area so keep that in mind.

Nice and Easy

Sand Island is an industrial place so there’s not many stores nearby but it’s a pretty unique park with lots of space to hangout. The beach isn’t the nicest but it’s good for little kids and there’s a nice surf break if the swell is in.

Fun Times

Campsites can be fairly close and there’s no real clear sectioning, but each site comes with two picnic tables and plenty of space to set up tents. Good amount of stuff to do around the campsite. Makes for a fun weekend activity with family/friends.

This website is in error. There are no dogs allowed on ANY Hawaii State Campground!!! Don't know if you know this or not. So if you have a dog in Hawaii, you cannot bring your loved one(s) camping anywhere. Too bad.

Worth it for the hot showers

Tried setting up a tent in a windstorm, gave up and slept in the van instead. Check in after hours was easy enough, didn’t noticed as the parking lot filled up overnight.

Don’t turn your back on the chickens. They’ll get into your vehicle if given the chance.

If camping on Maui, definitely…

Worth Some Hassle

We opted for van camping so we were close to the road so it was noisier than if we’d been closer to the beach. Due to rain and needing to drive around other vehicles, the site was hard to get in and out of but we really enjoyed the location and ease.

Amazing experience!

The Tentalow was clean and in nice condition. Little light pollution, great for star gazing.

Pass on this Wayside “campground”

Infested with kiave (extreme thorn plants). Difficult to get in and out of because it’s literally ten feet off a major highway. No fire access. No water access. Getting permits are a huge pain. Checking happened only once and it was in the middle of the night which is terrifying for a woman solo…

Gorgeous, quiet, (almost) everything you need

What a darling little spot. Would return in a heartbeat, and honestly probably will before the month is up. Had two glorious nights there and now I don't want to camp anywhere else in Maui because I was so spoiled.

Crowded Clamping

Date of stay: September 19 Campsite: #16

This area is available to DoD ID card holders only.

Tent campsites are way too close together! Every 2 sites should be combined to make 1. Ocean view sites are very sandy and if you are near the restroom, be prepared for beach goers to walk right through…
