Beautiful forested area that is located near the Haleakala visitor center. Perfect location to wake up early and drove up to the summit for sunrise or for stargazing. It is at about 7000ft elevation so it gets surprisingly chilly at night. You will need layers. It is a long drive into town, about an hour, so bring plenty of food as well. There are many trails the branch from the campground too. This is a must do camp site for the true adventurer!
