Oahu camping

So my family and I are thinking of going camping this weekend with a few buddies for new years.

We're thinking about to Peacock Flats, but would be up to try something else - anyone got any idea? I've got 2 kids under 4 I'll be taking, so it can't be a stoner/meth head's paradise!

Thanks in advance!

if you're in the military or know anyone in the military that can hook you up, there are several great campsite on military owned land.

Pililaau Army Recreation Center, Bellows and Barber's Point are all worth a look. They're far from roughing it, but not really sure what you're looking for.

Well the island's 25miles X 40miles, so no matter where you go, you're going to be just a few miles away from civilization, the beach, and about half hour away from a major city, max.

So yes you can blaze a trail and camp with no one else around, but you're still going to be just a few minutes from normal things.

This might be a little late for you to plan your New Years trip, but I've heard (from my local buddies) that I shouldn't go to Peacock Flats without a local friend. I've never been there, so I can't tell you exactly whether or not you should go. If I was gonna go camping, I'd stick to Bellows, but that's because I have a newborn and a wife who is still nursing. The other thing you could check out is the Pupukea area. There is an old Boy Scout camp up in the mountains...might be able to camp there if you contact the Boy Scouts of America. You can look their number up online...google "Boy Scouts Hawaii." You might also want to check out the "Hiker's Guide to Oahu." They have a lot of hiking/ camping on the island. Some longer hikes have camping along the way. The trail that comes to mind stretches from Laie to Wahiawa through the Ko'olau Mountain range. Supposed to be a 3 day trip with 2 stops to camp along the way (very primative). I'd love to hike that, but again...not conducive to babies...also, I'd feel bad leaving my wife at home all weekend without anybody to help with the baby while I go hiking and camping with the guys. Anyway, you should check out the book...I think I got it at Borders near Ward Center.

i know Bellows is a great place that you can rent out cabins! or if you really want to rough it try Kaena Point.
