Amazing place with all from tent pads to Tentalows to full cabins for groups. The place could get busy and a bit noisy, but look where you are! All with a really nice beach! What's not to like? The grounds are full of flowers and trees and some local kitties hanging around -

I have been to this camp 2x. I stay a few nights in the platform tents and then join a group in the group site. It makes the trip more affordable. I would recommend it for all! The tentalows have lovely outdoor showers and a sink attached to them. You share toilets with the

My wife and I stayed in a tentalow for the evening which were quite charming. The grounds seemed to be well maintained with a nice atmosphere. The mattress and pillows were as basic as they come. If you leave any items here do not expect to get them back. I forgot a personal

We didn't know what to expect when booking the weekend, but wow, what a great surprise! The grounds were clean, the tentalows were clean, the bathrooms were clean and the employees were friendly and helpful. Don't get me wrong ... you are definitely camping or perhaps glamping

We have visited Maui many times but decided to try something a little different this time around! Camping on the beach has always been on my bucket list and this is definitely the place to make that happen!! We stayed at campsite #1. We were steps from the beach, and fell asleep

I called them. They didn’t answer the phone so I left a voicemail and they called me back the same day. Once in Maui I was worried about being late to check in and I called them again. Also no answer so I left a message and they called me back within the hour. I found them quiet, but friendly, during my week long stay. The price was so affordable since I only rented a parking space and stayed in my camper that I would absolutely stay there again. I might be able to answer your other questions regarding the facilities but am confident that if you call you will get a response. :)

They provide a cooler. There are camping type grills you can use for cooking. Right across the road is Leodas which has great food. Also a general store and farmers market during the day. Grocery stores in Lahaina which isn’t too far away. If you go to Safeway at the Lahaina cannery mall there is a little building across from boss frogs in the parking lot that will give you a bunch of ice for cheap so take your cooler with you. Hope that helps and enjoy the camping. Definitely stargaze :)

"Lots of choices depending on budget"
"Sites 2-4 are a little more separated, but you get more light and noise from cars driving on the highway"
"Accessible rooms but not all tentalos have a ramp. No A/C or WiFi. Barely even outlets - think of yourself as camping!"
"Recommend Tentalows unit 6, 7 or 8. These units offer a clear ocean view from your front deck."
"I think they are all pretty well the same."
