...not the cabins. Camping here was the highlight of our trip to Maui. If you are thinking of staying in the cabins or in a hotel save your money and pack your tent and sleeping bag instead. It was worth the extra check-in bag at the airport. Get you permit online (hawaiistateparks.org) before your trip, print out a few copies... More

Stayed here recently on my road-trip around the island. The cabin itself is nothing special, really rather dumpy, but a short walk from here puts you on a beautiful black-sand beach. You can hear the waves crashing against the rocks from the cabin. The porch in the front of the cabin is large enough for several people to sit back... More

These Hawaii state park cabins are a great option for staying near Hana. They are relatively inexpensive, in a beautiful setting and allow you to get the most out of a trip to the east end of Maui. The trick here is to have reasonable expectations. The cabins are not new. In the wet Hana climate the exterior is going... More

It was a wonderful place to stay. Cabins were decent (minus the fact that the tennants before us didn't clean it properly), location was amazing, and the utilities were in good condition. The only downfall was the fact that check-out time is at 10am, so you either have to be packed and ready to go the day prior or wake... More

Basically, these cabins are located in paradise, with massive waves crashing within sight of our cabin (#5). They have adequate space, some cooking stuff, bathroom, shower, and six beds (which for $99 in Hana is all you can ask for). Bring your own bedding and towels. However, when we got there, our code didn't open the door. It took me... More

Our cabin slept 6 and was bigger than I expected. It was almost clean, but the beds were squeaky and dirty. Better than camping, and someone had even stocked the fire grill with wood. The view and location are unbeatable, and we didn't have any interaction with the staff, as we arrived later than check in and just used our... More

This is camping in a cabin, but the location is probably the most awesome on Maui. Take your own sheets and cleaning supplies and shower thongs. Also take your own utensils to cook with and food. Just ignore the caretaker and take it all in stride, you will never sleep anywhere with this kind of natural music to go to... More

as you may have read in other reviews, beware of the caretacker's daughter, have all your permits in order and don't argue, you may end up looking for another lodging at 8pm. Cabins are good as cabins go, pretty basic but you're out of the rain, you have light and water! Waianapanapa is fabulous, well worth the stay.

The absolute most beautiful surroundings on the island. Black sand beach is a couple minutes walk along breath taking bluffs and views! cannot say enough about the park itself. (see review) That being said: The care taker is the rudest most unfriendly, miserable, unaccommodating person on the planet! the office was always closed. We were yelled at from a distance... More

All the guide books say this place is difficult to get in to.. I found it was easy (except you need to print your actual permit, I printed the receipt) But was able to pull the permit up on my I phone. They have changed the reservation system to an on line Hawaii State Park camping.. And you must reserve... More
