Halfway between Kona and Hilo is  Ka'u and The Hermitage Acre with a gorgeous view of South Point on Big Island. At 3,700 feet the climate is perfect during the hot seasons and cold in winter for the hardy who want to see the best stars in the night sky with no light interference!

Manuka State preserve is a dog-leg around the corner (about 50 yards to upper entrance gate).

Ka'u is rugged and known for it's volcanic desert in the tropics. Ka'u is not for the weak and has never been conquered. This district on Big Island (Hawai'i) is larger than any of the other islands as it sits on the southern flank of Moana Loa.

Just a short half hour drive away Kona side to Ho'okena Beach for ocean swimming with dolphins or Hilo side for Punulu'u Black Sand Beach.

Only 20 miles to Na'alehu Hawai'ian sweet bread  bakery and Honu'apo (Whittington State Beach Park). and  same distance other direction Miloli'i by the Beach state park while at the bottom of the hill in Ocean View are many services and Road to the Sea is a 4 wheel adventure to Pohue Bay or back Na'alehu side to Green Sand Beach.

July 5th in Na'alehu for to see many paniola (Hawai'ianCowboy).

    The site where we put the tent down is all right, clean and very quiet. However, the toilet could use a good clean up. Also, it gets very cold at night since it is an elevated area.

    Bell was very kind and helpful! Our campsite was just a short distance from our car and the bathroom, but felt very private and natural. The view of the stars at night was the best we had during our time on the island.
