Whether you wish to tent or glamp, this campground is for you! The tenting areas are set up to be private from each other (instead of pitching tents in a field)... there are showers available and running water. The grounds are well maintained and the snorkeling is one of the best in the island. The "tentaloos" are fabulous for those...

If you have stayed here in the past, it is not the same campground. This is now a large, efficient and well organized campground with relatively good amenities and friendly staff. The campsites are spread out amidst the trees along the beach and seem to keep going on and on. They now accept reservations, cost a bit more and have...

We camped for 8 days around Maui - around Hana, up Haleakala, and at Olowalu. Camp Olowalu was our favourite. The privacy was adequate. There was some road noise, but not bothersome. There were a mix of other middle aged couples and what seemed to be more permanent residents. Everyone we encountered was with an open mind, and we had...

We stayed at Camp Olowalu for the entire duration of our stay in Maui (9 days). Originally we intended to camp or find a cheap condo to rent until we found the perfect alternative in the Tentalows. The place is gorgeous and the facilities almost brand new. We initially hesitated to book because of the bad review but they have...

I stayed in a Camp Olawalu tentalow over a Thur/Fri/Sat stretch during the busy whale-watch season. At last minute, I needed to change my reservation by advancing it a day and greatly appreciated the flexibility and understanding of the manager(owner?) I spoke with on the phone. As a West Maui resident, I was somewhat familiar with the property and aware...

Camp Olowalu just got new owners. It is an interesting place. The new owners have cleaned up the place a lot and are building tentalows which seem really cute. Tent camping is decent. They still have the disgusting chemical toilets that other campsites have. They do have nice outdoor cold water showers. The campsites have picnic tables, which are very...

I tent camped at Camp Olowalu for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The snorkel diving is awesome, saw tons of tropical fish and some big sea turtles. The camp is well run, clean and everyone who works there is kind and helpful, especially Sebastion. Highly recommended!

We have been there 4 nights. This campground was recommended from a friend who have been there last year. We were very disappointed with the facilities....what facilities??? There's an outside cold shower (never cleaned- dirty) and a little Lean-To style building with a sink (where people wash everything- teeth, clothes, shoes, dishes). We were happy there was a washing machine...

We stayed here years ago and it was fine--basic, but OK. I'm sad to report it has gone downhill, while the price has gone up. It's a terrible value for the price you pay, and no longer worth it--we actually moved to a condo unit instead. Camping is under thorny trees, dusty but really not too bad if the rest...

Lots of bare dirt- we were there on a windy night, and it went everywhere. The trees have thorns and shed lots of twigs with more thorns. The portajohns were quite rank, but to be fair, not notably more so than any others in the tropical warmth. The site is less than a hundred yards from Highway 30, the main...
