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
Best Campground for rooftop camper
We found the perfect rooftop camping spot next to the Vulcano Park. We arrived pretty late and had to wake up early, but the campground information and description was really helpful for us in order to find the correct spot. The pathway is lit up and safe at the end of the driveway. The showers are really easy to use really hot water and clean. The toilet was literally next to the roof tent entrance. REALLY clean standard toilet, with toilet paper. The most amazing part was the morning when we woke up in nature. Barbecue is next to you if you want to heat up food. Perfect chill temperature in June.

Amazing place! Breathtaking sunsets, full darkness in the evening for stargazing, quiet, hot shower, and very kind and extremely helpful camp hosts. What else would you need? Highly recommended!
