]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.) The 35 tent sites are $20 with access to flush toilets, enclosed outdoor showers, and picnic tables. The six mountain-view “tentalows” have two or four twin beds (which can be made up into one or two king beds) with linens, Adirondack chairs, and private outdoor showers. They’re close to the highway, but still cheapish at $80 per night ($95 during holiday season). Large groups can rent the six A-frame cabins, each with six cots (but no linens) and access to private bathrooms, showers, and a kitchen. The music and noise curfew is 9:30pm, but bring earplugs in any case. Note: All accommodations incur the state's 4.166% sales tax, but tentalows and cabins are also subject to the 10.25% transient accommodations tax. Guided kayak/snorkeling tours are available here (www.kayakolowalu.com; $65 adults, $45 children 7–12).
