Malaekahana Beach Campgrounds

Malaekahana Beach CampgroundMalaekahana Beach Campground is located between Laie and Kahuku on Oahu's northeastern shore approximately 35-miles from Waikiki. Covering 36,288 acres, this pristine location serves as one of the most popular camping areas in the State of Hawaii offering a variety of camping accommodations, amenities and activities to engage travelers, families and groups. Beach access provides opportunities for great ocean-based activities including swimming, bodysurfing, kayaking, sailing and surfing.

Malaekahana has been historically known as “Puuhonua” (Place of Refuge) and today still serves as a retreat for campers to escape back to nature. With sea turtles (honu) making Malaekahana their home, a 160 acre wildlife refuge of wetland habitat devoted to the recovery of endangered water birds at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge nearby, and Moku Auia Seabird Sanctuary(“Goat Island”) 600 feet offshore and accessible from Malaekahana, nature serves as a very integral part of the Malaekahana camping experience.

As lease holders of this State owned property, Malaekahana Beach Campground (MBC), LLC was created by long-time Malaekahana Bay residents Mark and Jim Reynolds, a father-son team dedicated to enhancing, protecting, and preserving the Malaekahana State Recreation Area. The Reynolds family has maintained a presence in the Malaekahana/Kahuku area for over six decades. For over 30 years, Mark and Jim have enjoyed all Malaekahana Bay has to offer, and strive to enhance, protect, and preserve the beautiful Malaekahana State Recreation Area.
