Minimalist Beach Shack

This was a fun stop on Oahu. Keep expectations low as the amenities are few and far between. The beach shacks are pretty raw, but it's nice to have a place to keep stuff safe. There was no mattress on the bed, and the whole thing was crawling with ants. But it had electricity, a bit of privacy, and…

Fantastic North Shore Camping - with a curfew

This is a giant and pretty fantastic campground on the eastern side of Oahu’s North Shore with that has access to so much! The campground itself is super reasonably priced at 10$ pp per day. 

Each site has a table and fire pit. The sites across the different loops are super variable. There are…

  • A loop beachfront sites
  • A loop near the parking with a little wind break

Super Clean and Incredibly Friendly

I camped here in January 2021 during peak Covid closures when the campground was not yet re-opened for group camping. 

In 'normal' times this campground is mostly used for events and it's well set up for that. If you're independently camping, I recommend calling ahead and reserving one of the…

Felt like I had a private beach

The campground is rustic and noisy because of the chickens wandering around. It is beyond gorgeous by a surf break and a great sunrise spot. Very windy when I was there. Select a spot with some mangrove cover if you can.

Best campground on North Shore Oahu

One of the best campgrounds on Oahu because it is private and very well maintained! There are day use parking areas for people to use the beach but the campsites themselves are blocked off by a gate with a keypad entry so there aren't random cars driving by your campsite ever. Initially I was…

Quaint Campground

This was my favorite campground I stayed at while on O'ahu! It was the least expensive, and felt the safest. I had a tent spot right by the beach. The bathrooms and shower facilities were basic but very clean and were nicer than some of the other campgrounds. The staff were super friendly and…

Large Secluded Campground

The campsites are spacious and very spread out. There were a handful of other people camping, but I only briefly saw them while I was there. The bathroom and shower facilities were nice and well maintained. I was able to pitch my tent close to the beach and had ocean views from my tent. 

I had…

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…

Best Beach Camping on Oahu!!!

Clean, well run private campground on Da North Shore. Fairly convenient (20 minutes) to Polynesian Cultural Center which offers a great opportunity to experience a luau. Proximity to a white sand beach second-to-none. Watch for humpback whales December through March...

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.

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…

Fantastic beach

I would recommend the beach camping spots. We had a site a ways back and in the trees. It was private and nice. Gates close at 7:00 pm. Watch out for centipedes; I got bit and it was extremely painful. Outdoor showers by the beach. There are toilets. Beach beach in all of Oahu!

Beach Front Sites

This campground is beautiful. The best sites are waterfront. You need to book early, the good sites go very fast!  The campground is only open Friday-Monday. The camp sites are large and that makes it nice, because sometimes it can get crowded. There is plenty of shade too!  I have camped here…
