If you only stay one place on the Big Island, this is it! Cynthia's farm in Waipio Valley is absolutely amazing! She was so kind and helpful. She met us near the lookout and led us down into the valley to make sure we got to the farm safely. Note: YOU WILL NEED A 4x4 (Jeep or truck) to get there, which makes it all the more amazing! We had a wonderful time exploring the valley.

A joyful moment in the heart of paradise.Wild horses roam the valley, and my children fell in love!This is the view that greets you as you approach the camp.

What a awesome stay!! This was a super cool place to camp. If you are looking to explore this valley this is a must. Cynthia went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended.

Waipio Wonder farm is amazing! You are camping with wild horses at the bottom of the valley and have access to a communal kitchen with clean water and ability to cook/eat at a table. There is also an outhouse and nearby stream. It is about 20 minutes from the beach and Cynthia had great recommendations for hikes. Would definitely go back!

I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to spend three days in Waipio Valley. It has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We hiked the roads and King’s Trail, crossed streams, played in the river and the Ocean, frolicked under a waterfall, ate fresh oranges off a tree the grew along the trail, photographed wild horses and gorgeous flowers, visited with locals and other tourist and made memories to last a lifetime. The campsite is still being completed but Cynthia couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. This isn’t a resort or even a park. It a real experience a chance to live like a Wiopio local and may not be for everybody but I loved it!

Excellent host, and a truly unique experience you won’t get anywhere else. The valley is amazingly beautiful, the campsite at the farm is magical, beyond my expectation. Cynthia’s a great host, very responsive and caring. I’d give 10 stars if I could!

Words cannot fully describe the beauty of Waipio Valley (you really need to see it for yourself). The steep valley walls hug lush farming fields with a beautiful network of streams that race towards a black sanded beach. Paradise.
The sounds of birds and frogs echo a harmonious reminder that the Giants of the forest house a biodiverse community.
I enjoyed my daily walk along the road to the beach, where I could hang from a hammock and listen to the waves crash against the soft sanded shore. Just wait for the star gazing, as this is a Billion Star accommodation ; )
If you enjoy hiking, there are options for you and you won’t be disappointed.
All of this sounds amazing, right?
Well there is only one thing that is better. Cynthia is a real pleasure and is as warm and welcoming as anyone I have met. She went out of her way to make my stay as comfortable as possible :) She is the best!

Not as advertised. No dishes, no pots and pans, only one propane tank so we had to move it between shower (hot water) and stove. Dirty kitchen, no place to put a tent, outhouse far away on a muddy trail. It’s not a farm.

Hipcamper Heidi

Scenic, but not a good tent site.

Group kitchen not as advertised. Dirty and needed a good wipe down. Before we could use it. No pots or pans to use for cooking. We had to sweep and wipe everything down first. Water system needs more troubleshooting. We had to shut off the pump so we could sleep. No where even remotely dry to set up a tent, but we were allowed to sleep in the community cabin which is great due to heavy rains. Wild horses have churned up the grounds into a muddy pit making it difficult to get to the outhouse.
