County of Hawaii Improves Its Camping Permitting Process

Ehawaii.gov, the private company operating the Department of Parks and Recreation’s camping website, will begin offering a more user-friendly online permitting service on Monday, December 31.

That’s when people visiting www.hawaiicounty.gov/parks-and-recreation/ will be able create a personalized account to make or cancel camping reservations, seek a permit refund and learn additional information about County of Hawai‘i campgrounds.


County benefits of the upgraded website will include improved accounting, along with the flexibility to post closure notices, marine warnings and other park updates online. Also, the new system will collect the names of all registered campers, enhancing campground security for park users.

To accommodate the website upgrade, no camping permits will be issued or reservations accepted on Saturday, December 29, or Sunday, December 30. The Department of Parks and Recreation apologizes for this temporary inconvenience and wishes to thank the public for its understanding.

Once the new system is activated, ehawaii.gov will start collecting online convenience fees for camping permits the Department of Parks and Recreation issues from its offices island-wide.

A nightly camping permit will be $6 for each adult, $2.25 for each teenager between the ages of 13 and 17 years old, and $1 for a child up to age 12.

For more information, please contact Jason Armstrong, Public Information Officer, at 345-9105, or jarmstrong@co.hawaii.hi.us.
