Waipi'o Lodge and Campsite is located in Kukuihaele less than a mile from majestic Waipiʻo Valley. In a place where horses and wild turkeys often wander by, this is the old Hawaiʻi. A place where neighbors stop to talk and life is sweet as the smell of sugar cane grass. You'll enjoy a wonderful ocean view and the many fruit and macadamia nut trees on the property. We occasionally offer farm fresh eggs from our flock of hens as well. We usually have perfect weather- sunshine, blue skies, a nice breeze, with temperatures in the 70's.

The campsite is part of the Waipi'o Lodge, which has three bedrooms and a common space living room. Our camping guests are welcome to use the outside kitchen and covered lanai. We also have high speed Wi-Fi.

Our guests tend to be excellent company, usually visiting from Europe, the US Mainland, Australia and beyond. Many use our place as a launching point for hiking in Waipi'o Valley or backpacking trips into Waimanu Valley.

The Waipi'o Hostel was a great spot to camp! It is located a 5 minute drive from the Waipio lookout and 15 minutes from Honokaa. If you stay in a tent, you still get access to the hostel's bathroom, living room and outdoor kitchen. The hosts were very accommodating and supplied us with all of the camping gear for a small fee.
I highly recommend staying here if you find yourself near Waipio Valley!

Perfect place to stay in Hawaii on a budget! I camped out there 2 nights before and after backpacking to Waimanu, and it was definitely a luxurious camping set up! So nice to have the outdoor kitchen and shower to use. Greg and his family are really sweet and helpful. Would definitely recommend and if I'm ever back on that part of the Big Island, would probably stay there even longer!

We really enjoyed staying at Greg’s place. It is well located and well set up. It was particularly nice to have some shelter in the evening given the heavy rain!

It was a great stay we had camping at Waipio Hostel. The outside amenities and shower and washrooms are very appreciated. The location is very close to Waipio Valley, 10 minutes walking, 1 minute driving. I totally recommend staying there if you plan visiting the valley.
