Access to Haleakalā National Park campgrounds was temporarily closed beginning in March 2020 for safety reasons due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. To better manage the campgrounds within Haleakalā National Park during the COVID-19 Pandemic, beginning June 1st, 2021 visitors can reserve campsites in advance at Hosmer Grove campground through Recreation.gov. Kīpahulu Campground remains closed.
Haleakalā National Park currently offers one drive-up campground: Hosmer Grove campground located in the Summit District.
Hosmer Grove Campground - Open as of June 1, 2021
Hosmer Grove lies in the cloud belt of Haleakalā, at nearly 7,000 feet (2134m) in elevation in the Summit District. Come prepared for rain and cold weather! The forest comes to life in the early dawn with the many native birds in the area, making this a beautiful early morning hike.
Six designated sites are located in an open, grassy area near the forest and shrubland of Hosmer Grove. Each site has a picnic table, grill, and access to potable water. The campground has pit toilets located in the parking lot. All vehicles must park in a designated parking space within the paved lot. A self-guided nature trail begins and ends at the campground.
Campers who obtain a reservation to camp at Hosmer Grove campground also receive a reservation to view sunrise the morning after camping. Those without a campsite reservation for Hosmer Grove who wish to view sunrise will need to obtain a reservation through recreation.gov.
