Kawaikoi Campground

Campground in Nā Pali-Kona Forest Reserve


The Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife provides camping facilities for public recreation. Campers must make reservations online and obtain camping permits before their trip. To address health and safety issues related to COVID-19, new conditions for camping permits have been developed.

  • Be advised that campgrounds may be closed without much advanced notice due to shifting nature of COVID-19. It is recommended that you check the camping website just prior to your camping trip for the latest updates.
  • Campsites are not an allowable travel quarantine facility. Non-residents must provide proof of quarantine completion prior to reservation date.

Along the Mohihi-Camp 10 Road, approximately 3/4 mile past the boundary into the Na Pali-Kona Forest Reserve is the Kawaikoi Campground. This open grassy field site next to the Kawaikoi Stream has two picnic shelters and a composting toilet. You may access the campsite by foot or, under good conditions, a 4WD vehicle
