Ahupuaʻa ʻO Kahana State Park

Come Camp at Oahu's Gorgeous State Park

Nestled between Kaʻaʻawa and Punaluʻu on Oʻahu's windward side, Ahupuaʻa O Kahana State Park, formerly Kahana Valley State Park, unfolds as Hawaii's sole public ahupuaʻa. Extending from the ocean to the summit of Puʻu Pauao at 2670 feet, this expansive park showcases the beauty of the region. Beach campsites beckon outdoor enthusiasts, offering tent camping opportunities from Friday through Wednesday.

For Hawaii residents, the campsite fee is $20 per night for up to 10 persons, while non-residents pay $30 per night. Children aged 2 and under enjoy free admission. Two accessible hiking trails, Kapa'ele'ele Ko'a and Keaniani Lookout Trail, and Nakoa Trail, provide a chance to explore the park's wonders. The former, a one-mile loop beginning at the Orientation Center, unveils cultural sites and picturesque views of Kahana Bay in approximately one hour.

Named after the koa trees lining the path, Nakoa Trail spans 2.5 miles through a tropical rainforest, offering a 2-hour loop hike with a total length of 5 miles from the Orientation Center. No permits are required for these relatively easy trails, though they may become muddy. Trail maps are available at the Orientation Center, providing essential guidance for an enriching experience in Ahupuaʻa O Kahana State Park.
