Boondocking in Hawaii!

Boondocking in Hawaii is nearly non-existent due to the State’s restrictive laws on camping and the fact there is very little federal land. The state’s three national parks restrict visitors to developed campgrounds, and there are no national forests or BLM lands. Hawaii does have it own system of “forest reserves” which does allow primitive camping, but there are very few roads into these areas. Most free camping is restricted to two beaches on Oahu.
