Keahuolū Camping Program

Camping Overview

In April 2014, the trustees of the Liliʻuokalani Trust set aside land to be used, in perpetuity, for the benefit of Native Hawaiian children so that they may enjoy an ʻohana-oriented camping experience. Located between Kailua-Kona town and Honokōhau Harbor are two campgrounds nestled along the Keahuolū shoreline. Halepaʻo is a sandy beach surrounded by a grove of milo trees with a swimming area and tide pools. Hiʻiakanoholae is a sandy beach to the north of Halepaʻo with tide pools, blowholes, and deep ocean waters.

To register your child or children, please use the Camping Program Registration link. After completing your registration, you will receive a confirmation email that will include the reservations systems link. Mahalo!

The Trust is committed to preserving the Keahuolū shoreline, including its rich historic, cultural and natural resources. Many reminders of our ancestors exist here, with its wahipana (sacred places) and other treasures unique to this ʻāina. Campers must be mindful and respectful of this special place.
