Camping on Oahu? Check out the best spots

Camping is one of the best ways to experience Hawaii. You are immersed in Hawaii’s nature which allows you to experience a peaceful sunset with warm colors setting above the ocean while waking up to a bright blue sky and crashing waves along the beach in the morning.

Not only does it offer you something different than a hotel room would, but it’s also less expensive!
