Sand Island State Recreation Area State Parks Camping



Description

Sand Island State Recreation Area will be opened for camping on Thankgsgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, 2018.

Sand Island State Recreation Area offers weekends-only shoreline camping within a heavily industrialized area very close to the urban core of Honolulu and the flight path of the Honolulu International Airport. This park is also adjacent to the Sand Island Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) day use riding area - which contains tracks and trails for motorized OHV's and non-motorized BMX bikes. The park often hosts large groups of resident weekend campers.  For security reasons the gates are locked nightly around sunset – vehicles cannot exit the park until the following morning. For those seeking a more tranquil camping experience, the Division of State Parks suggests checking availability in one of our other Oahu campgrounds: Malaekahana SRA, Keaiwa Heiau SRA, or Ahupua’a o Kahana SP. Sand Island is an arid, urban coastal park which offers picnicking, camping, walking, shore fishing and board surfing. It fronts a small sand beach and has good views of Honolulu Harbor and ocean sunsets. Park closed nightly Monday thru Thursday. Camping Rates: Hawaii Residents:  $12 per campsite per night for up to 6 persons; $2 per night for each additional person*.  Maximum fee per site: $20/night.
