This is not really a botanical garden in my opinion, but the land is lovely and serene. We drove most of the area and stopped along the way to read the signs on plants, trees, flowers, etc. Many are native to Hawaii, but they also have plants from all around the tropics including Kenya, Tonga, and Malaysia. You can camp here, but I am not a camper. However, if I was I would camp here as it seems so peaceful. I went on a Friday, and there was no one there which was great to me. The camp sites looked clean and well managed with bathroom facilities. We went to the visitor center, which could be updated but the I get that they don't have a lot of money. They should have a jar asking for donations, because I think people would give a little. There is a lake you can walk to and fish, so we walked down to check it out. It is very relaxing, but there is not much to it. There were two art exhibitions in galleries while we were there, which were fun to look at. Some of the art was very good from the Windward Artist Guild. I think this is something nice to do if you are in the area and enjoy plants. It is over 400 acres, so there is a lot to take in with the beautiful mountain range behind you.
