Best in Hawaii: 1st place
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
The property is located on Maui island in the Kula district on the drier side of Haleakala. In days before western contact the area was heavily forested with native plants and trees and rainfall was abundant. The native Hawaiian grew bananas, taro and sweet potato.  After Western contact businessmen mostly from the United States developed huge tracts of land for ranching and farming which cleared the native forests and destroyed the eco system from the mountain to the sea. Many of the Hawaiian people moved away nearer to the towns and immigrant Chinese laborers from the ranches and plantations moved in. The Chinese brought in the Wattle tree to plant for firewood as these trees grew very fast. These are the majority of the trees that you see today. As part of the Chinese immigration, the founder of modern China, Sun Yat Sen lived here for a time and planned his revolution to overthrow the last Chinese Dynasty. There is a park dedicated to him nearby. We have picnic tables a propane grill, a fire pit and a covered gazebo that is shared with 3 cabins This site is located at the 2800 ft altitude and the temperature at night can range from mid 50 to mid 60 degrees F. If you are planning to go to Haleakala, we are about 45 -60 minutes to the summit. We are also on the south side approach to Hana. There is a great restaurant for breakfast and lunch about 10 minutes away in Keokea town called Grandma's Coffee house.

Camper Van #5 Parking in the Forest
Super clean well maintained campsites, and the hot water for the shower was such a wonderful bonus compared to the rest of the campsites on Maui we stayed at! Would absolutely recommend a stay here ☺️

Camper Van #5 Parking in the Forest
The lot was very easy to find and get to. After camping at Kipahulu and Papalaua, it was such a treat to have amenities like hot, running water, flushing toilets, and lights. We were also able to make use of the grill to cook up dinner. Since the land was higher up, we got a fantastic view of the sunset and ocean. The hosts were hospitable and welcoming; if I ever do the camper van thing again, I will absolutely return.

We enjoyed out stay here! Alika gave clear directions which made it very easy to find! The bathrooms and shower were great!!!! They worked well and they were clean! We enjoyed watching the sunset right by our camper. We stayed one night and left the next morning to go to Haleakala National Park to watch the sunrise. Great location if wanting to do that!
