Halfway to Lahaina on the Honoapiilani Highway, this campground abuts one of the island’s best coral reefs. It’s perfect for snorkeling and (during winter) whale watching. (You can hear the whales slap their fins against the sea’s surface at night—a magical experience.) Tents sites are $20 with access to porta-potties and outdoor showers. Tentalows have twin or king beds with linens, private outdoor showers. They’re close to the highway, but still cheap-ish at $80 per night ($95 during holiday season). Large groups can rent the six A-frame cabins with bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen. If you’re tent camping, make sure a rowdy wedding party isn’t booked that night. Either way, bring earplugs. You can rent kayaks here, too.
