What are the best beach camping destinations in Hawaii? 

When you think of camping in Hawaii, you imagine pitching your tent in the sand, where you can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves, and jump into the ocean the moment you wake up. From secluded beaches you can only reach via an arduous hike to easily accessible campsites nestled along the coast, here are 11 phenomenal beach camping spots throughout the Aloha State — from a remote campsite in Polihale State Park to Malaekahana Beach Campground.

Can you go camping in any parks in Hawaii? 

Of course, you can! While you will find campgrounds scattered across the Hawaiian Islands — from beachfront parks to botanical gardens and everywhere in between — our favorites are found within Hawaii’s state parks. These 12 state parks and recreation areas offer some of the Aloha State’s best campgrounds, and we can’t wait to escape into the wilderness for a weekend.

Where are the best places to go glamping in Hawaii? 

If you’ve never been camping — let alone know which gear to purchase or borrow for a stress-free camping trip — pitching a tent and sleeping on the ground can seem a little daunting. Luckily, there’s a secluded paradise hiding in Maui that is a “glamping,” — you know, glamorous camping — paradise. Though located just six miles southeast of Lahaina, you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from it all at Camp Olowalu.
