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
My husband and I rented a camper van and the location was really nice! Beautiful view of the land and ocean below, good directions and easy to find! Shower was really nice as well! It’s outdoor and a propane shower, but was very warm!

Camping with a bonus sunset!
We had a great stay at Alika's place! We camped and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the sunset! The bathrooms and shower were clean and well equipped. The bbq area also had many things for cooking and basics. Elika has thought of everything! Great place to stay upcountry.

I loved the shower and restrooms and sink basins. I loved the barbecue area and the grill, especially the picnic tables and covered area. The motion/solar lights were great that come on when you need them in the dark. It was very nice, and quiet with a great view below from being approximately 3000 feet up the base of Haleakala. Thank you very much.
