Camping and lodging permits may be reserved and purchased up to one year in advance. The only exceptions to this are for all parks on the island of Oahu, and for Mauna Kea SRA and Kiholo SPR on the island of Hawaii, where permits can be applied for no more than 30 days in advance.
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.
The simplest way to to make a camping or lodging reservation and payment is to do so from home, 24 hours a day, via our new electronic permits portal, which is also the most convenient way to check site availability.
The Division of State Parks (DSP) no longer accepts mail-in permit applications. All permits for camping and lodging must be paid for in full at the time of reservation. DSP no longer accepts partial deposits for lodging.
Customers may also purchase permits in person at one of the District Offices. Offices are open Monday-Friday, 8 am-3:30 pm Hawaii time. Offices are closed on State Holidays and furlough days.
NOTE: DUE TO THE CURRENT STATE OF HAWAII FISCAL CRISIS, DSP MAY HAVE REDUCED PERMIT ISSUANCE HOURS ON AN OCCASIONAL AND REOCCURING BASIS. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE.

Checks are to be made payable to the Department of Land and Natural Resources. Personal or business checks will be accepted only if payment is received more than 30 days before the check-in date, therefore checks are not accepted for Oahu camping.
