See the brochure, Hiking Safely in Hawaii

Occassionally, the Air Force closes vehicular access through the Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station at Yokohama for security reasons.  These closures may be unannounced.  It is recommended that you call the KPSTS land line is (808)697-4311 to check on potential closures

The Kuaokala Road will become extremely slippery and muddy during rain events and large mud puddles will form.  These conditions make the road impassable at times.  Watch the weather before going and during your trip.  Either cancel your trip, turn around or leave immediately should the weather dictate.  Neither the US Air Force nor DLNR has the equipment, training or staff for vehicle recovery services should you get stuck.  You will need to either contact an offroad towing service or get assistance elsewhere.  

NO GROUND FIRES.  Camp fires must be in a container such as a hibachi or 50 gallon drum.  Almost all wildfires in our Forest Reserves are caused by campfires.  Make sure you put it our before you hike out!

No changes will be accepted to an existing permit less than seven (7) days prior to the check-in date.  Permits are not transferable. No refunds will be given if requested within 15 days of your first scheduled camping day - all payments will be forfeited.  Permit must be printed, signed and in your possession while camping.


Drive west on H1 towards Waianae and along Farrington Highway until you reach Keawaula/Yokohama Bay in Waianae. Turn right and check in with your permit at the security guard station. Proceed up the road until you get to the intersection with the second guard shack on the left. Turn right at the stop sign and proceed past the Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station. Once past the tracking station, the road curves to the left and you will pass another intersection on the right. Adjacent to the next intersection is a large dirt parking area. Proceed past the parking area on the unpaved road that descends down into Manini Gulch. The campsite is 7.3 miles in. 4WD vehicles only. If you are hiking or biking, access is also available via the Mokuleia Forest Reserve Access Road, 4.2 miles (https://hawaiitrails.hawaii.gov/trails/#/trail/mokuleia-forest-reserve-access-road/165).
