My partner and I spent three weeks camping here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our original plans were to camp at all of the availalbe camping spots on the island- both state and fedral but after driving the island and looking at the other camps decided to stay on at Camp Olowalu. Good basic ammeneties- not sure what others expect for a camp ground but I found everything I needed and the showers and sinks were a bonus- most of the camping spots in Oregon do not have this option. Enjoyed the fact that I could walk to several spots to snorkel and was close to a store. The garbage was emptied daily, the porta potties were cleaned every other day and the other campers were quiet and respectful. I am returning in Feb of 2010 and am planning on camping again here! Also I have reommended it to many of my friends that want to go to Maui and have always hesitated due to cost. I spent less for three weeks camping than I did to fly there!!! Maui for three weeks under 2000.00 for two- Who can beat that?
