Campground Facilities

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.
