a beautiful campground unfortunately the park is only open to day trippers at the moment. I was keen on hiking into the park and packing it  all in with me and the park rangers are serious about giving the land some time to rehab and relax until they again feel comfortable with thru hikers and…

Hosmer was awesome.

You would not think about cold weather gear when camping on Maui, but we used it here. It was cold and wet both nights. We were prepared and had a great time; camping here made it much easier to drive up for the sunrises and sunsets each day.

We will camp here again!!

A must-see in Maui!

This is a must-see in Maui! From the base of the mountain, it will take you about 30 minutes to drive to the top of Haleakala.

The roads are very twisty, and there are sections where there are no guardrails. Be sure to drive at a pace that is comfortable for you, and utilize the pullover areas to…

Awesome little park!!

Unreal! It’s like your on the moon. O! Watch for a NeNe, this bird is very rare and lives on at the top of this mountain . Beware the road it going up is all twists and turns. Be careful if you get carsick or are severely hungover 🤢

Hey - it’s Maui, what’s more to say?

Ok, you twisted my arm...

Hosmer Grove Campground is a small set of primitive sites located in the Kīpahulu region of Haleakalā National Park, at the cloud line. This means it will get cold, especially at night, and even in the summer. Come prepared for this nice break from the Maui beach heat. …

beautiful but rainy campground in the clouds

We hiked through here on a day hike through the crater, and stopped here to rest and chat with some campers. The campground has one cabin available to reserve online (but reservations fill up fast) and then a grassy area to camp with a tent in. The guys we talked to said it was constantly raining…

campground in the mountains and clouds

We camped here the night before going up to the top of Haleakala. For some context, we did a campervan trip round Maui for a week and a half, and this was our third stop after camping in Wanapanapa State Park and then Kipahulu. We spent 2 nights in Kipahulu and then our third at Hosmer Grove, so we…

Always fun

Lived on Maui for 2 years and used to come up here to camp just to get the Northern California vibe and fresh cool air. It’s a great base camp for sunrise, sunset, or my personal favorite overnight stargazing at Haleakala summit. My boyfriend and I always bring small firewood and light a campfire…

Gorgeous backcountry campground

This was the first place that we camped at on our Hawaii trip and it was by far our favorite. Paliku is one of two backcountry campsites in the Haleakala National Park summit district. Paliku lies along the eastern side of the crater and will take your breath away. The beauty of this campground is…

A stunning and secluded backcountry campsite

Holua is one of two dispersed backcountry camping sites within the crater district of Haleakala National Park. A backcountry camping permit must be obtained from the visitor center to stay at Holua. Depending on where you start, it is a 4-6 mile hike into the site. Dispersed campsites are a 3…

Maui is one of my favorite places to visit, and I am lucky that my family and I come every year. This was a great place to visit. We did some snorkeling nearby that was awesome! The instructors were great, and we saw so many amazing underwater creatures. We also did some body boarding and had lunch…

A free drive up campground on the volcano

One of the few completely legal free places to stay on Maui. Why is it free? This campground is in the cloud layer, so be prepared for a humid moist stay. You would be hard pressed to get a fire going here. This campground is past 7,000 ft so be prepared for high winds and cold temperatures. If you…
