This is a spectacular place to camp. The staff, including the Security Guard were friendly and on it! The grounds were nicely kept and our hale was clean with excellent ventilation. We were able to get ice and firewood when needed at their camp store which made things super convenient. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy amazing campfires.

This place is such a magical spot. I camp here at least 3 times a year. The girls in the front office are always kind, pleasant. and very thorough. The campers are respectful to each other and the workers are helpful. I definitely would recommend camping here if you’re planning to come to Hawaii or for just a weekend getaway. .

Please beware if staying here. Meth addicts have unfortunately become comfortable passing through the grounds scoping out valuables. They are very blatant & obvious about it, broad daylight. Coming right up to cars & looking in windows. I experienced it first hand & had to confront one. Scary to say the least. I've lived on this island long enough to know what meth addicts look like & this was a perfect specimen. Malaekahana has become a haven for them as it's the only cheap place left to stay on the island, there are no cameras anywhere & limited security. I've been staying at the campground since 2003 & never had a problem until now. The sites furthest from office are where they lurk, areas 3 & 4. Watch your cars closely, they love to smash windows & take what they can. Please be aware meth addicts can be highly unpredictable & violent when high or experiencing withdrawals. They become desperate & will resort to anything to get more meth. Don't leave items in your camp unattended if possible. I'll miss you Malaekahana but once meth addicts get comfortable in an area good luck getting rid of them. Where there's one there's many. Installing visible cameras & significantly increasing security presence is your only hope.

I was looking forward to a great camping experience but got rather dissapointed with the unfriendly and unmotivated operators of this place. After asking for help several times to find the correct tent-spot, they replied:" Don't get lippy on us." (!) Why did i ask for help and then complain after the 5th try? Confusing and totally hidden numbering of the designated places, absolutely impossible to find the right spot without help. They were too lazy to show me the right tent-spot, the ladies rather smoke some cigarettes instead. Also, the janitor is too lazy to show you the tent-spot with his golf-cart, then drives away, hides behind the bush and when you find him he tells you how things work in his Reich. Security at night? Nothing, non-existant. That's why this camping-ground serves as a perfect feeding ground for the neighbooring crystalmeth village ... I got warned by locals about this. A shame, because they could make so much more out of this beautiful camping ground.

Aaron was awesome. He tends to the needs of the campground. The view was amazing. Got to see turtles and various other wild life. Had a blast. I would recommend staying here. Off away from the city. All that is needed as far as groceries is near by.
