How to Reserve

Camping

Both of the Maui Parks, Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area and Waiʻānapanapa State Park offer tent camping in addition to cabin lodging. Waiʻānapanapa State Park is also the only State Park in Hawaiʻi that has a small area designated for camper vans.

Lodging

Two Maui parks offer housekeeping cabins. These cabins consist of units with a kitchen-living room, a bathroom, and 1 or 2 bedrooms. Each unit is furnished with bedroom and kitchen furniture, electric stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, hot shower, bathroom, dishes, and cooking and eating utensils (recommend bringing your own). Fireplaces or electric heating are provided in cold mountain areas.

  • Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area has a single cabin for rent at a high elevation on the slopes of Haleakala Volcano. The single cabin accommodates a maximum of 8 persons. No electricity, refrigerator or linen is available.
  • Waiʻānapanapa State Park offers cabins along the rugged shoreline of Hana. Each unit is capable of accommodating up to 6 persons.
    Note: As of August 1, 2009, linen and towels are no longer provided in the Waiʻānapanapa cabins.

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.
