My husband and I stayed at quite a bit of camping spots in Kauai when we were here for our honeymoon for 2 weeks. We stayed at this site, but only for 1 night. We were definitely on the move, looking for great places to stay, hike and eat. This place was great for the night. Located within the Kokee State Park. It was near Kilauea, which is a beautiful town in Kauai. I honestly think this was a spot that not a lot of people come to, because we didnt see very many people. We didnt mind this :). We woke up early in the morning and did 2 different hikes in the area that were gorgeous. The views at the top were stunning. We were close to the Waimea Canyon, which holds so many different hikes. The hike we did started off downhill- downhill the entire way down! This was something I had never done before. Obviously we had to hike uphill on the way up, which was difficult because the sun was out and completely drained me. Should have got an early start for sure! If you stay at this spot I would highly recommend hiking, but getting an early start. There was a really yummy smoothie bar (cant remember name) that was close to the park. We got smoothies after our hike because I was so thirsty and tired!!
This is one of the most beautiful and unexpected places to see on the island of Kauai. You can camp either in a tent or there are some cabins to check out as well. This is the place to go on the island if you need to get out of the heat and humidity given that its higher up in elevation. Around this area there a some beautiful hikes into the canyon itself. You can do small day hikes to full night trips through the canyon. A must see if your on the island.
