Yes, you have to haul linens, and the cabins definitely need an update, but they are clean, had hot water and decent mattresses, and the park is beautiful. The low cost and 6 beds make the cabins perfect for larger families or those who prefer to spend their $ elsewhere. Thoughtful campers had left behind dish washing detergent, some odds... More

We mostly enjoyed our stay in cabin # 6. First of all, we didn't have to race back to "civilization" by dark like most of the day trippers. The cabins are $60 + $6 in fees for Hi. residents, and $90 plus fees for non-residents. Our cabin had two twin beds in the living room and two sets of bunk... More

The camping here is awesome. This place is truly Hawaii. There is a big blow hole in the rocks, amazing views, and the sounds of waves crashing while you sleep. The black sand beach is awesome. One of the best spots to camp on the island!

My husband and I had stayed at these cabins 9 years ago and the condition went from rough to gross. The cabins did not have any amenities. There were ants all over the kitchen counter. The hot plate barely worked. The caretaker was very rude and nasty. For the price ($99. a night) it was not at all worth it.... More

...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
