Aloha! We are currently encountering delays in processing Special Use Permits, Camping Permits, and Kaena Point Vehicle Access Permits. We graciously ask for your patience during these times as both of our Honolulu Administrative Office Permit Staff positions are vacant. - Mahalo, State Parks

*children 2 and under free
The maximum length of stay at any one park is 5 consecutive nights. Certain parks or campsites allow shorter maximum stays. After that, you or anyone listed on your permit must wait 30 days before staying overnight again in the same park.
Permitees are allowed to reserve no more than one campsite or cabin in any given park at a time. Rental of cabins or campsites for commercial uses is prohibited except by special use permit.
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.
