We spent a week camped here, during our 1-month stay on the Big Island of Hawaii, and while it is a little out of the way at times, is definitely a place to check out.

This is truly a locals' beach park. The drive to the beach is a pretty, scenic, albeit winding road south/east of Pahoa, on (at times) a narrow, one-lane road. Be courteous, pull over, and give a shakka (Hawaiian wave - the hang loose sign) to the oncoming traffic. Weekends can be overwhelming and chaotic, when everyone and their neighbor decides to come hang out at the park to surf, play in the park and bbq. But the week days are often quiet and peaceful.

The campground itself is a nice, large, well-manicured green open space, but could use a few more trees for shade. Bathroom facilities are brand new and "green" (aka. hardly any water pressure). Shower facilities are only outside and in the open, unfortunately. Campground security officers are remarkably friendly! Just be ware of the coqui frogs that make a ton of noise at night!

The beach itself is rather rough and rocky, and not great for playing in the waves. But if you like to surf... this is a hot spot! Every morning, we would wake up and watch the surfers as the sun came up.
