This Might Just Be The Most Beautiful Campground In All Of Hawaii

With endless summer weather comes endless opportunities for summer activities: surfing, snorkeling, hiking, and perhaps my favorite – camping trips. While the islands are home to countless inland campgrounds – usually at our incredible state parks – perhaps even better is pitching your tent in the sand, listening to the waves crash against the shore while you fall asleep, and jumping into the ocean just seconds after you wake up. Though we aren’t usually into picking favorites, if we’re being completely honest, this small beachside campground on Oahu’s northeastern shore might just be the prettiest campground in the Aloha State.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
