Camping and Lodging Permits and Fees
Camping and Lodging Opportunities by Island:
Kaua‘i | O‘ahu | Maui | Moloka‘i | Hawai‘i
AN ONLINE PERMITTING PORTAL IS AVAILABLE AS OF MARCH, 2010.
Camping fees for Hawaii State Parks start at $12 per campsite per night ($18 non-resident), with the exception of Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park, Kaua‘i. The fee for camping in Napali Coast State Wilderness Park, which has camping areas at Hanakoa, Kalalau and Miloli‘i, is $15 per person per night for Hawaii residents and $20 per person per night for non-residents.
Lodging is available on Kaua‘i through a concessionaire, and on Maui and Hawai‘i through State Parks.
Lodging fees for Hawaii State Parks range from $30 per night for screened A-Frame shelters ($50 non-resident) to $60 per night for a cabin ($90 non-resident).
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
Hawai'i'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 Wai'anapanapa State Park on Maui, which has a small area designated for camper vans.
