Campers, Camper Vans and Trailers

Hawaiʻi’s State Park campgrounds are not set up for camping in vehicles, including campers, vans and trailers. Sleeping in vehicles in our campground parking lots is therefore not allowed. The single exception to this rule is at Waiʻānapanapa State Park on Maui, which has a small area designated for camper vans.
