Quiet, Rustic, & Beautiful

Detail location of campground


DO NOT FOLLOW GOOGLE MAPS! IT WILL TAKE YOU ON A 4x4 ROAD (we know how much car rental companies hate that)! DO NOT TAKE RED CINDER ROAD TO KAHEI. CHANCES ARE IF YOU DO, YOU WILL GET STUCK! Also, please ARRIVE AN HOUR BEFORE DARK to set up. We are on a dark island in a rural area in a forest. From Kona: Please drive the main highway of Akoni Pule, make a right at the Kohala Visitor Center onto Kahei Road. From Waimea: Please drive down Akoni Pule Highway, drive through our little town of Hawi, then. make a left onto Kahei as soon as you are out of town. Drive all the way to the top of Kahei where pavement ends passing the PUEO RIDGE & PUEO'S NEST sign to the second driveway of our property. Make a left at the big turquoise 55-779 sign. Put in the code given to you by host at time of booking. Drive onto property, immediately make a right by big bonfire pit and drive all the way up along the right side to the top of property where there is a bell tent and look for the parking signs marked with a "P". Park at any of these spots. Then walk 30 seconds through the forest and look down. You will see the colorful platforms. Pick whichever one you so desire. Or if in a camper bus, please park on flattest parking spot in the "P" area. The center camp of HIPPOCAMPUS is in the middle of the campsites where you'll the kitchen, toilet and shower. There are two more toilets by the entrance on right as you drive in that are turquoise, blue and green that are flushing vermaculture (worm) toilets and a sink and spicket up by the bell tent in the parking area!
