Hawaii is one of the most interesting and beautiful places on earth and what better way to explore it than outdoors on a camping and hiking trip. You’ll be able to stay at oceanfront campsites and enjoy spectacular views for just a fraction of what you’d pay for a hotel. The temperate climate of Hawaii makes camping even more appealing.
There are numerous county beach parks that are designated as camping areas. The number of sites in these parks will vary from as few as four up to as many as 50. You can enjoy Hawaiian state parks all year round as they provide permits for lodging and camping to those who are 18 and older.
There are two national parks in Hawaii, these are the Haleakala National Park, which is located on Maui, and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which is situated on the Big Island. The Haleakala Volcano is located in this park.
If you’d like to camp in a state park, you need to get a permit from Hawaii’s Division of State Parks. You’ll find offices in Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, and the Big Island. Some of the campsites in the state are listed as State Forest Reserves and also require a permit, which you can get from the Hawaiian Division of Forestry and Wildlife for free.
It’s well worth obtaining a permit to camp in Hawaii as you’ll witness some of the most gorgeous scenery in the world when exploring its countryside.
