There are eight tent sites, each with a 20 x 20 foot roof, to keep rain off your tent! Each tent site will hold a tent with a footprint of 9' x 9'. There are two 30 x 30 foot pavilions that serve the eight sites with four handicapped bathrooms and hot showers. The pavilions have a covered patio, picnic tables and a common sink for food preparation. There are cinder block bar-b-ques at each tent site for cooking. The site is ideal for youth retreats or small groups. There is no electricity at the site; campers need their own lights, lanterns, tents, charcoal, ice, sleeping-bags, and so forth. Tent sites are a 10 minute walk from the parking lot.
Big group? Rent the lodge kitchen for an additional $25 a day.
RATES (plus tax)
OVER NIGHT ONLY (11am to 11am)
The price is $12 per person. Children under 7 are free.
We have LLBean cots available for $12 per night.
A security deposit of $125 is required for groups to hold a reservation. It is due 20 days after your reservation is confirmed, or with invoice payment, whichever is earlier.
We realize tenting can and will often be on a walk-in basis for eco-tourist biking around the island. For this situation no security deposit is required, however identification will be required for securing any breakage.
PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY
You will be invoiced for your group stay based on your reservation information. Payment must be received 1 week prior to your reservation IN date and is not refundable afterwards. Again, we realize tenting can and will often be on a walk-in basis for eco-tourist biking around the island. For this situation payment is due upon arrival. Furthermore, there are no rain-checks. Pa'auilo Mauka is a rain forest and rain is to be expected.
Our Special Use Permit does not allow access to the Camp by bus. Visitors must arrive by van or car.
