Infested with kiave (extreme thorn plants). Difficult to get in and out of because it’s literally ten feet off a major highway. No fire access. No water access. Getting permits are a huge pain. Checking happened only once and it was in the middle of the night which is terrifying for a woman solo camping.
Attention Worst of all: a serious theft problem. Tent stolen. Umbrella stolen. Ladies before me had all their passports stolen.
The only pros are that it’s on a beautiful beach and the permitted spot is absolutely massive. Too bad tons of non-permitted campers decided to join me in the spot 🙄
What a darling little spot. Would return in a heartbeat, and honestly probably will before the month is up. Had two glorious nights there and now I don't want to camp anywhere else in Maui because I was so spoiled.
4.5/5. Absolutely worth it. LOOOOOVE.
For a few bucks per carload, Miguel’s camping spot is contains of a few open field areas situated between the Climbing Gear Shop and the famous pizza spot. A true hippie haven and Appalachian favorite, the compound also boasts three covered shelters, a basement area for a relaxing hangout, a half court for basketball, and few token-operated shower stalls, and a half dozen toilets. Miguel’s is generous with prices and with trust.
The camping ground itself has very few roots so it’s easy on the back, but note that must has no tree coverage so the sunlit will have you up first thing.
If in the gorge for the long haul or just a night, this place is a must. If, however, you have plenty of experience, I highly recommend getting a backcountry permit for the same price and staying out in the RRG itself.
