Kapa'a Campground is a county run camping area within Kapa'a Beach Park on the Big Island's northwestern coast.

Kapa'a feels far more like a locals spot than the crowded tourist beach parks more in the vicinity of Kona. While not a great spot for swimming due to the rocky shore and unprotected surf, the park does have everything you need for an afternoon picnic and is placed perfectly to catch the sunsets.

The campground is placed on the arid hillside perched over the northern shore area of the park. Like other beach parks, there are no assigned camping spots, but instead is first come, first serve. There is a small flat area beside the gravel parking lot a short distance before the access road ends at the beach park lot. Aside from that several areas on the dirt slopes have been cleared and are wide enough to accomodate smaller tents.

The park's facilities include showers and flush bathrooms, a covered picnic pavilion, and dispersed picnic benches along the beach, however none are located in the camping area. Grills are located beside the picnic benches.

The only water available is for the bathrooms, campers will need to bring their own drinking water.

Reservations must be made prior to camping, and can be coordinated through the County of Hawai'i website. The price is $21 per person per night for non-residents, and $5 per person per night for Hawaii residents.

Kapa'a Beach Park is open from 6am to 11pm daily.
