Private Camping

Hideaway Camping: a secluded private space

Hawaii Campground. Unlike public campgrounds which are in county or state parks, private camping allows you to set up your tent and then be able to leave it with security and peace of mind as you explore the island.

However, please note that we are in the rain-forest so it rains! This means that "normal" camping with just a tent might not be so comfortable.

We recommend a waterproof sturdy tent with a tent flap for extra protection from the rain.

With the increase in pricing at the official campgrounds and ongoing reports of incidents that happen, we offer a safe private camping alternative that is compares well price wise with the county campgrounds.

For those who have their own camping equipment we offer different private camping spot.

Our Hawaii Campground Options:

  • Jungle Hideaway Camp. The most secluded camping spot in the far corner of the property. A nice, flat, level platform to place your tent. Tucked between the meditation temple and a fragrant lemon tree, this spot feels like your own corner of the community. It is ideal for couples, or those who like the sounds of nature!
  • Mobile 'Hippie' MPV. We have converted our Mazda van to a mini-camping spot and painted it with the colors of the rainbow nation! Because of it's central location, the MPV is the only 'lodging' that has WiFi access! Perfect for a single who enjoys creative sleeping spaces.
  • Avocado Campsite. Located near a grove of Avocado trees, this space is a very popular camping spot! An elevated platform to place your tent and a canopy above to keep you extra dry. Located across from Rollinia House and near Rain Forest Tent, you'll feel near and connected to the other community members. Also under the canopy, a few chairs for lounging and a dresser to store clothes and possessions.
  • Emergency Arrivals. We also allow camping for 1-night emergency stays in the community yoga barn for late night arrivals.
