 - Hawaii Vacation Big Island Camping
  Plan Your Adventure > Camping > Big Island Camping

Camping is a great way to see the Big Island, as well as other islands in Hawaii (Kauai, Maui or Oahu). It is also a great way to visit the Big Island on a budget. Some camping sites have amenities while others are more primitive. Cabins are also available at some sites if you don't want to sleep in a tent the entire time.

You'll need to get the proper camping permits, for free or a nominal fee. Some sites are in very high demand, so you will need to plan ahead. (Reservations can be made up to a year in advance.)

Don't forget to pack your camping gear. Whatever you forget, you might be able to purchase at one of the local outfitter stores.

The Hawaii camping sites only have cold water. For a hot shower, you could try one of those sunshowers. The Volcano House rents showers when available. Alternatively, you might want to stay at a hotel some nights.
