My boyfriend spent 8 nights, just got back 3/29. The campgrounds were clean, bathrooms and showers were amazing. A very short walk to the parking lot, but had a wagon available to haul gear. Internet was available at the main check in area. Lounge chairs were available on the beach. We saw turtles a couple times and snorkeling at mile...

Excellent Campground. Clean bathrooms, and flush toilets. Overall, excellent facilities.We will definitely visit again. A little pricier than other campgrounds on Maui, but you get what you pay for. The Staff was very helpful.

Camp Olowalu was our last stop in Maui. We were tent camping all over Maui and very happy to end it here. We were very excited to see the flush toilets and warm showers, which were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The tent sites were small, however we could see and hear the ocean from our...

Let me break it down! Area: super accessible to all places on the island! Grounds: 500m max from the ocean (meh beach), beautifully kept grounds, well landscaped. Tentalows: glamping. Great in the rain. Cooler provided. Outdoor shower👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽❤❤❤. Two twin beds smoosh together to make a king. A pack and play fits! They would provide cots for kids. I would say...

Just returned from two weeks at Camp Olowalu in Maui and it was wonderful. We stayed in the tentalows (so technically we were "glamping" and not "camping") but it was an excellent choice. The camp is clean and the washrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen in any campground anywhere. We had no issues at all and found that, other...

We were here the last of January. Nice people, great sunset and sunrise. Clean, nice showers and bathrooms but that's where it ends. The location for tent camping was far from comfortable. You are surrounded by dead trees that grow thorns, these thorn branches are everywhere, they even make it to the beach. No bbq grills, no fire pits, no...

What a place! The setting is romantic, and the campground comes to feel like a real home away from home, and a hobbit village! The coral reefs just offshore are really great snorkeling, and the weather is warm and in the wind shadow so the waters are often calm here when they are choppy elsewhere... My advice: if you're going...

The couple who manage the camp were very helpful and flexible and we really appreciated that. They stressed that this is a family-friendly place and people are expected to respect quiet hours and indeed it turned out to be a very quiet campground. At least, the people were quiet. It is right next to the highway so you have to...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Check in was pretty smooth, though we weren't quite sure what to do when we got there and they were closed from 11-1. A note would be nice. The sites were close together, but lovely and shady. Beach view was lovely at sunrise, and the few steps to get to the beach to snorkel...
