All jungle-covered cliffs and sparkling seas, Hawaii is one of the top vacation destinations in the U.S. This tiny state packs in a staggering amount of breathtaking landscapes. From the volcanoes of the Big Island to the canyons of Kauai, the Hawaiian islands offer camping areas you won’t find anywhere else. If your flight lands on Oahu, your best bet is the beach parks that ring the island. At Mālaekahana State Recreation Area, you’ll find picnic tables, hot showers, and turquoise seas. Want to camp on a sandy beach? Book a beach site in advance at Ahupuaʻa ʻO Kahana State Park—there are only 10. On the Big Island, two campgrounds at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park put you near the Kilauea action. Look out for the lava glow from your tent site or cabin when the sun goes down. With kids, it’s hard to beat the crystal-clear waters of Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. If it’s hiking you’re after, Kauai has you covered. The spectacular Waimea Canyon offers some of Hawaii’s best hiking. To the north, camp near the Na Pali Coast State Park for dreamy sailing and serious Jurassic Park vibes. No matter where you are in Hawaii, most state, beach, and national parks require a camping permit. It’s a good idea to reserve online in advance. Looking to upgrade? Hawaii offers a huge range of glamping options, from luxury tent camping to wilderness cabins.
