Tips for beginners

CampingHawaii's many beautiful camping sites can be even more appreciated if you have all the information required. Here some Hawaii camping tips for beginners.

Camping regulations and requirements vary according to the county you're in. Unfortunately, no single campsite permit booking system covers everywhere so; you read every information and rules before making a reservation.

Tides have no mercy. So, avoid pitching your tent at low points. If you are camping close to the ocean make sure you anticipate low points as dry places during low tides may become flooded during high tides.

Clear all roots and rocks on the ground before setting your tent to avoid uneven bed, and pack your vehicle close to keep an eye on it. Consider the layout and figure out where to cook, eat, and light fire.

Hawaii is a paradise with all the benefits any visitor would love to enjoy. It offers beautiful scenery in the mountains, oceans, lakes, and plantations, without any limitations. Discover the best activities, mix with other campers, enjoy the sunshine and the sea, and have the fun of your life.
