Camping will be available all weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), however YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR CAMPING ONLINE THROUGH THE CITY’S ONLINE CAMPING RESERVATION SYSTEM!
The specific camping area at Ho’omaluhia you want to try and reserve is at the Kahua Nui Makai campsites. There are 13 campsites available at tis location.
HDGA will try to reserve a few campsites for our players who wish to camp, but we can’t guarantee that we will be able to get them, so we’d recommend you at least try to book a camping reservation yourself if possible as the camping at Ho’omaluhia is very competitive for campsites.
Register and reserve your campsites here. This is the City’s online camping reservation system. Make sure to register on the website in advance prior to trying to book the campsite, to save time and give yourself a better chance of getting a reservation.
