Located 35 miles away from Waikiki, the beachside campgrounds are tucked between Laie and Kahuku on the island's northeastern side. The site offeres 74 developed campsites with easy beach access. Campers have the option of overnighting in tents, vehicles, cabins, suites or renting out an entire pavillion, equipped with bathrooms and showers. A camp store is available in case you forgot anything from a toothbrush or propane fuel or an air matress. The campsite also offers beach rentals, including stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, surfboards, bodyboards and bicycles. Hungry campers can take a break from grilling and stop by the campsite's North Shore Food Truck, which serves breakfast and plate lunches. Reservations can be made online or by phone.
