The campsites were adequate: dirt and sand to sent up a tent on, no fires allowed, ample garbage/recylcing cans, two private outdoor unheated showers and a row of portopottys. The cars droned on the highway until about 11:00, then then big trucks took over ending at a about 1:00 am. Only complaint would be the the sad state of the... More

This camp area is gross, dirty, and sketchy. People are not friendly here and our friends got in a fight with some locals the next night because one of them drunkenly hit their car and tried to drive away, then he pushed the girl to the ground before others intervened. I would not recommend this place to camp. Camping is... More

Having never visited Maui, we were uncertain what to expect at this campground. We were pleasantly surprised. Over 50 camp sites, all different shapes and sizes, some with amazing views of the ocean. The campground is quiet, with the exception of the crowing roosters, who sometimes get confused about what time dawn is. The bathrooms are porta-potties, which are stinky... More

I emailed before my visit asking about visiting with a VW westy and was told there was no need to make reservations, there is plenty of room. What they failed to mention is that you are just getting a parking spot in the lot. Hell, I can park at Walmart for free if I just need a safe spot to... More

I shouldn't even write this, because I'm afraid the place will be full next time I go there. This campground is one of the only private campground on Maui. It is very well located, a few miles from Lahaina, in one the more dry area of the island. A very good launch pad for your daily exploration. It has many... More

We just got done doing a Kayak/snorkel tour and I can't begin to tell you what a great experience it was!! Not only was the tour guide incredible but we got to swim with (but not touch) turtles!! Kale was our guide and he was THE best. He explained the science behind the reefs, history and culture behind the island.... More

It's been awhile since my first review. We stayed at Olowalu a few times in between, and unfortunately, the site kept getting a little more creepy each time we stayed. Domestic fights, things being stolen between full-timers, being woken up in the middle of the night by strange chemical-smelling smoke... So when we went this past January, I was a... More

Not much to write home about, and I don't think I took a single photo of this place. I camped here a night and thought that it was reasonable for the price (especially on Maui). Porta Pottys and dodgy looking showers. The campsites are packed in pretty tight, but I did not find it to be a problem during the... More

What a great way to take it all in and save money at the same time. We enjoyed our 3 nights at this camp. It was very easy to check in and the campsite was clean and very well maintained. What a treat to get to hear the ocean waves just feet away from the door of your tent or... More

This used to be a church camp located approximately 10 miles outside of the town of Lahaina, Maui, but has since been sold and is now operated by the owners of the property. There are 6 cabins on the site, which comfortably sleep six people on army type cots. In addition there are bathrooms with showers and a large mess... More
