Big Island Campsites

The Big Island has the most camping sites out of any other island in Hawaii and is great for campervan camping. There are a mix of county, state, and federal campgrounds, as well as other private campgrounds. We have listed some of the best camping spots below. Be sure to book your campsites early to avoid disappointment, and keep in mind that some campgrounds do not allow you to sleep in your campervan rentals. If you choose to camp at one of them, please add a tent during checkout. Free camping or "boondocking" is illegal and frowned upon by the local community.

Escape the Tourist Traps with Campervan Hawaii

The Big Island is considered a camper’s utopia because it has some of the most beautiful camping spots in Hawaii where you can visit nearby beaches, swimming holes, historical sites, lava terrains, and various hidden gems. You can enjoy a wide range of activities such as watching the sun rise or falling asleep to the sound of the breaking waves right inside your campervan.

Start your trip at Ho’okena to see the traditional Hawaiian fishing practice in action, then snorkel and surf your way across the sea’s surface. Visit the lush trails at the Kalopa State Recreation Area and discover Hawaii’s abundant variety of native trees and rare plants. Another great spot is the Kiholo State Park with its historic lava flows and black sandy beaches. Kohanaiki Beach Park is another must-visit camping site where people can surf, barbecue, and watch the sunset.
