Love this place!! Tent, car camp, Glamp, or stay in a cabin. Private beach. Great bathrooms and showers. We really loved this place. There is a coffee shop and fruit stand a short walk from here. Front street is about twenty minutes and the airport about thirty five.

I'm honestly hesitant to write a review about this place for fear that I'll never be able to get a reservation again, but it's fantastic. I loved waking up to the sounds of birds chirping. I spent a week in my tentalow. By far the most affordable accommodations you will find on Maui!! The tentalow includes your own sink and...

I was very apprehensive about staying at a camp ground when coming to Maui. I will say that I enjoyed this experience at Camp Olowalu! The grounds are beautiful with a picturesque view of the mountains on one side and the beach on the other. We stayed in a Tentalow for 8 nights and tent camped for 2 nights. I...

I just returned from a Hawaiian paradise vacation and happily stayed in the tentalows at Camp Olowalu. This was one of the most fun experiences I've had while staying away on vacation. My tentalow was exceptionally clean, the sheets smelled great, the breeze blowing into my tent at nite was amazing, and the grounds were impeccably beautiful. I loved being...

My boyfriend spent 8 nights, just got back 3/29. The campgrounds were clean, bathrooms and showers were amazing. A very short walk to the parking lot, but had a wagon available to haul gear. Internet was available at the main check in area. Lounge chairs were available on the beach. We saw turtles a couple times and snorkeling at mile...

Excellent Campground. Clean bathrooms, and flush toilets. Overall, excellent facilities.We will definitely visit again. A little pricier than other campgrounds on Maui, but you get what you pay for. The Staff was very helpful.

Camp Olowalu was our last stop in Maui. We were tent camping all over Maui and very happy to end it here. We were very excited to see the flush toilets and warm showers, which were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The tent sites were small, however we could see and hear the ocean from our...

Let me break it down! Area: super accessible to all places on the island! Grounds: 500m max from the ocean (meh beach), beautifully kept grounds, well landscaped. Tentalows: glamping. Great in the rain. Cooler provided. Outdoor shower👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽❤❤❤. Two twin beds smoosh together to make a king. A pack and play fits! They would provide cots for kids. I would say...

Just returned from two weeks at Camp Olowalu in Maui and it was wonderful. We stayed in the tentalows (so technically we were "glamping" and not "camping") but it was an excellent choice. The camp is clean and the washrooms are the cleanest I've ever seen in any campground anywhere. We had no issues at all and found that, other...

We were here the last of January. Nice people, great sunset and sunrise. Clean, nice showers and bathrooms but that's where it ends. The location for tent camping was far from comfortable. You are surrounded by dead trees that grow thorns, these thorn branches are everywhere, they even make it to the beach. No bbq grills, no fire pits, no...
