Hāpuna Beach State Recreation Area rents 4-person A-Frame shelters.  These shelters consist of a single screened room with wooden sleeping platforms and a picnic table. Centrally located in the shelter complex is an enclosed pavilion with a range, refrigerator, and tables. Comfort Stations with cold showers and restrooms are available for shared use by all shelters.

NOTICE: To further enhance your visit to Hapuna Beach SRA, State Parks has contracted work to be done on the comfort stations and other facilities in the park.  This will require the closing of the comfort stations while they are being worked on.  During the renovation work, portable toilets and shower will be made available to park patrons normally using these facilities.  For public safety, please remain outside of the marked work areas during your visit.  We thank you for your understanding.
