Maui has some of the most beautiful beach resorts, however, nothing beats going camping. It is incredibly romantic to camp out under the stars in Maui as you listen to the soft crashing of the waves along the shoreline. So, once you’re ready to go camping, we’ll now look at a couple of tips that you should keep in mind.
First of all, you will need to choose a camping ground. Some of the popular options include Haleakala Crater, Camp Olowalu, Kipahulu Campground, Wai‘anapanapa State Park, Polipoli Springs, etc. The Kipahulu campground in a particular is a great option if you love swimming since if you camp here, you can go swimming in the Pools of Ohe‘o whenever you want. In camp Olowalu, there are excellent facilities as well as cabins and various rentals that you can enjoy, especially if you like to stand up paddling. If you prefer a more mountainous campground, then the Polipoli Springs Recreation area is a good option and there are lots of trails for you to explore.
Once you’ve decided on a particular campground, you should then make sure that you have all the supplies that you’ll need. This includes a good quality tent that is waterproof and can withstand the elements. You should also have a comfortable and warm sleeping bag, food items, a cooking stove, utensils, enough drinks and water, chairs, lamps, etc. Be sure to always have enough heating and lighting elements so that you can keep warm. Even though you can easily walk with enough ready-made, canned or packaged food, you should also consider cooking some of your own food on a portable cooking stove for a more authentic camping experience.
Don’t forget to save a contact number of a towing service in case your car encounter a problem.
In closing, we have just looked at a few tips for camping in Maui. This is definitely a gorgeous place to camp and you should definitely do so once you have the opportunity.
