Relax in the rainforest! Cabriole with caprines! At 1100 ft elevation, cool nights and brilliant starry skies await your Hawaii Island camping experience. Sweet & simple with all the basics!
Eclectic & rejuvenating, we share our 6 acre, off-grid, subsistence-style, growing homestead with those who want to camp in comfort and safety, while visiting our beautifully diverse island. We focus on regenerative practices in a permaculture-style, modified agroforestry/silvopasture system. We focus on: pack goats, dairy goats, pet goats, land clearing goats, and the occasional meat goat. We have about 10-20 goats at any given time. Our child friendly, naturally horned goats love to take long walks & some are even available as hiking companions!
Sorry, no yoga goats.
Peaceful property, beautiful songbirds, sightings of the pueo and iio (Hawaiian owls & hawk) are common.
Private clearings in forest, orchard or (camp with goats!) pasture are available for your tent.
Our permaculture style gardens provide edible landscapes tucked in alongside grassy paths, young fruit trees and mature guavas. Produce and farm-made items are often available to our guests on a "pay-what-it's-worth" system.A working homestead, you will find a real "Farm to Face" experience.
It is the rainforest, so it rains ALMOST every day; we are blessed with heavy dew each night, regardless of rain forecast so be prepared for damp. That being said, the sun also shines ALMOST every day. #norainnorainbows Tarps available for added rain canopy during the worst weather.
HOT SHOWER! Our pleasing outdoor shower is Hawaiian Rainwater-fed, birdsong-accompanied, open-skied, private, comfortable and big enough for two (or three!) You may reserve our large tub for hot soaking- small extra charge & dependent on rainfall/water availability.)
Coqui frogs are in abundance and as THE LOUDEST FROG IN THE WORLD, if the temperature is above 17C (63F) they will serenade you all night long at 70+decibels. Bring earplugs if you sleep light.

The vibe at Goat with the Flow!
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I could probably gush about Julie's place for hours, but let me just begin with this: do yourself a favor and go stay at her place. I visited many camps around Pahoa and Goat with the Flow was definitely my favorite camping spot. My visit was so perfect, her spot is magical and I adored every moment I was there. I will 100% be coming back again for a longer stay. The goats are some of the cutest animals I have ever seen and it was so fun not only interacting with them myself but watching Julie with them as well. A huge benefit of her property is the common area and kitchen for the guests to use. Julie also provides a welcome letter offering plenty of activities and ideas on what to do. She also had a lava tube running through the property, which is so neat because you can hike into it. Make sure you check out the products she has for sale, I bought some passionfruit caramel spread and it is INCREDIBLE. Thank you so much for hosting me Julie, I truly loved getting to know you. Can't wait till next time!
