Camping & Lodging - Oʻahu

How to Reserve

Camping

O‘ahu parks serve a diverse and densely populated urban community quite different from our neighbor island parks. Therefore special rules and procedures apply to O‘ahu camping. There is no camping available at State Parks on Oahu Wednesday and Thursday nights. Sand Island State Park is only open to camping Friday through Sunday nights. Permits for O‘ahu camping can be applied for no more than 30 days in advance.

Camping is offered at four O‘ahu parks. All opportunities are for tent camping with simple developed campsites.

Fees

Camping

*New Fees Effective 10/9/20*
Hawaii Residents:
$20 per campsite per night for up to 10 persons

Non-residents:
$30 per campsite per night for up to 10 persons

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.
