Camping on Maui
Camping on Maui is available on campgrounds at several locations in its national, state, and county parks -- some with cabins:
Camping at Haleakala National Park includes overnight facilities at two drive-to campgrounds, two hike-to wilderness campgrounds, and three hike-to wilderness cabins. The two drive-to campgrounds are at:
Hosmer Grove Campsite atop Haleakala mountain.
Kipahulu Campsite on the coast 10 miles south of Hana.
Camping at two Hawaii State Parks, in two locations:
Polipoli Springs State Park campsite and cabin above Kula in Upcountry Maui.
Waianapanapa State Park campsite and cabins near Hana Town in East Maui, with a site for camper vans.
Camping at two Maui County Parks:
Kanaha Beach Park campsite beachfront in Kahului near the airport in Central Maui.
Papalaua Wayside Park campsite beachfront between Maalaea and Lahaina in West Maui.
In addition, three hike-in cabins and two campsites are available at the top of Haleakala National Park:
Holua campsite and cabin.
Paliku campsite and cabin.
Camping is also available at private campgrounds on Maui:
Camp Olowalu beachfront campsite and cabins near Lahaina in West Maui.
Camp Keanae campsite and cabins halfway to Hana in East Maui.
Cabins are recommended for camping on the summit of Haleakala mountain where nights are cold, and recommended for winter camping in Hana or Kula during the rainstorm season.
"Camping is officially allowed only in campgrounds, however visitors and residents alike camp along any beach as long as there are no signs posted against camping. Camping on the beach is legal for fishing purposes, so put a fishing pole by the water and you're fine. No camping is allowed at Ahihi-Kina'u Natural Area Reserve, Honolua Bay Marine Reserve and Oneloa (Big Beach) state park."
Camping is also available on the nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai each nine miles from Maui, with ferry service to each island from Maui.
The Molokai campsites are included below on the state and county web sites.
On Lanai there is only one official camping site, the Hulopoe Beach Park. The camping permit can be obtained from Castle & Cooke by calling their Lanai office at (808) 565-3319. The cost is $10 per night per person.
