Camping is a great way to connect with Hawaiʻi’s outdoors. It’s important to know that the process for camping permits and reservations depends on which agency or division manages the area in which you want to camp:

  • If you want to camp in a Forest Reserve or other remote area managed by the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife, you can browse campsites in the webmaps below. You can use eHawaii.gov to reserve your site.
  • If you want to camp in a State Park or reserve a pavilion in a State Park for day use, you can get more information from the DLNR State Parks website, and you can use eHawaii.gov to reserve your site.
  • If you want to camp in a county campground, you’ll need to visit the website for the county in which you’d like to camp.
