Located 31.5 miles south of Hilo on Highway 11, Nämakanipaio Campground is a large open grassy area at 4,000 feet of elevation featuring tall eucalyptus and 'ōhi'a trees. The weather can be highly variable with many cool and damp days. Daytime temps are usually in the 60s or 70s and nighttime can be anywhere from the 30s to low 50s (Fahrenheit). It’s highly recommended you use a tent with a solid rainfly, and bring comfy clothing for cool days, evenings, and the inevitable cuddle puddle.
