Secluded spot in the Oahu Mountains. Getting there can be a challenge and Camping is very primitive. The only amenities on site are put toilets and picnic tables, plan accordingly.
On a clear night however the sky is amazing!

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 your site to use the toilet…! (Side note, that’s my biggest pet peeve!!)
Tons of amenities here though, putt-putt, driving range, bar w/ pool table, foose, beach equipment rental, paint ball, small bouldering area!
Date of stay (Aug 19) Stay site (Kahua Kuou site #4)
Favorite Spot for family camping on Oahu! Free fishing (bring your own bread), easy hiking, and large spread out campsites make this a great spot to camp with little ones!
Each site at Kahua Kuou had a fire pit and the campsites are secluded enough where park goers are not traipsing through your site.
The park visitors center has a limited number of bamboo fishing poles available on a first come first serve basis. Or you can bring your own.
Recommendation: the hike with fishing gear, cooler, kids, is a little long..bring a wagon!
Date of visit (Jan 20) Stayed in Campsite #6 Like many campground in Oahu the campsites were very close together. We lucked out and there were not many campers in the park after 8pm. However during the day this Regional Park does get very crowded with weekend activities, parties, and tourists.
The Kualoa A site is tucked away from the massive crowds there to see Chinamans Gat and is a nice spot to listen to the waves gently crash against the shoreline.
Bathrooms worked, showers were very cold (expected), and there is a nice sink outside the restrooms to scrub dishes.
Would stay here again.
