See the main camping page for Hawaii state-wide camping permit procedures, rules, prices, & exceptions. Oahu campgrounds are an exception in that they are only open from Friday - Wednesday and that they will allow permit applications only 30 days before the arrival date. The permit application process is different for Malaekahana State Recreation Area (Ph: 808-293-1736) because reservations are taken directly by the concessionaries, not the state office.
