Camping Adventure in Maui

03 August 2017 / By

Tom is a camping aficionado. Although we didn’t stay here, we had to check out Camp Olowalu. It is situated a mere 10 minutes from the tourist hub of Lahaina. Yet, the location feels extremely secluded and peaceful. A stay at this camp site is a fun alternative to the typical resort and condo accommodation experience in Maui.

Why Camp in Maui?

Camp Olowalu is the perfect place to return to nature.  The property features a fabulous beachfront location with an abundance of trees and trails that encourage you to disconnect from the outside world.  With the Pacific Ocean just steps from your campsite, you are situated perfectly to set out for a day of snorkeling or kayaking. If you plan your trip for whale watching season, your campsite is one of the ideal places on Maui to watch the migration.



Camping allows you to fully immerse yourself into the beautiful natural setting of Maui. Is there anything better than cooking outdoors and lounging beneath the stars?  We also love listening to the ocean waves in the background as we sleep at night or hike along the beach during the day.

At Camp Olowalu, there are a number of amenities to provide for a comfortable camping experience.  All camping options include hot and cold showers, flushing toilets, drinking water, sink, common area with grills, and picnic tables.

Camping Options at Camp Olowalu:



  • Beachside Tent Camping

Are you like us and travel from afar, would like to camp, but don’t want to pack camping gear?  If so, no worries. Camp Olowalu rents tents and camping equipment to make your beachside camping experience possible.

  • Tentalows


Now, this is more my style of camping.  It’s a comfortable tent/bungalow that has its’ own bed, sink, shower, and lights.  The location isn’t beachside, but it has a beautiful mountain view and is a short walk away from the ocean.

  • RV & Car Camping

Camp Olowalu has parking for camping vehicles and all are welcome to enjoy the camping facilities on the property.

  • Cabins

This is for groups only. And we think it’s ideal for family reunions or a wedding party.  There are 6 cabins that sleep 6 people.  In addition, this communal area has its’ own mess hall, kitchen, and men’s and women’s bathrooms.

Our Tips:

Tom and I enjoy luxury accommodations. However, Tom really enjoys the outdoors and camps whenever he has the opportunity.  If you are like us and like all types of vacation experiences and, why not do them all?  We recommend spending a night or two camping followed by a stay at a lovely resort, such as our favorite on Maui: Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort
