Maui- Hawaii camping is one great way to enjoy a Hawaii vacation without spending a lot of money. Of course, even people with a lot of disposable income would enjoy spending the night under the stars, high on the slopes of Haleakala, or on a great Hawaiian beach, waking to the sound of waves and Hawaiian birds. Frankly, if you really want to experience Aloha, camping is one of the best ways to do it.
Perhaps one of the best hiking and camping experiences in Hawaii is Maui's Haleakala National Park, especially the trails inside the dormant volcanoe's crater. The 10,000 foot altitude makes this excursion one for the Truly Serious hikers and campers, but if that's your thing, the other-worldliness of Haleakala is irresistible.
Camping Permits - To confirm reservations, State operated camping areas require a full payment of the total cost of the camping no later than 2 weeks after a tentative reservation is issued. For cabin reservations, a 50% deposit of the total cost of the lodging is required. If the payment is not received within two weeks, the reservation will be cancelled. For cabins, the remaining payment is due upon or before issuance of the cabin key.
