No, you cannot camp anywhere in Hawaii. Camping in Hawaii is only allowed in designated campgrounds, state parks, and county parks. You will need to obtain permits for camping in most locations. There are many beautiful camping spots across the Hawaiian Islands, including on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. You can make reservations for Hawaii campgrounds on Hipcamp.
