Around here, camping can be a real adventure to spots that no one would ever think to go. Why would one never think to go? Because there is no road. Local-style camping usually means beach camping with a little shore fishing thrown in. There are also several campsites at which you can reserve a cabin or campsite area through the State of Hawaii or county of Hawaii. For a list of some of these on all islands, please go to the Department of Land and Natural Resources campsites page. You can also check the County of Hawaii page for county campsites.

Driving to the beach over the lava
Drive over the pahoehoe on the "fisherman's trail" to get to this beach, or hike in with only what you can carry.
Camping local style on a remote beach
Get away from it all on a remote beach for as long as you have supplies to last.
