Hosmer Grove is on the way to the summit, high on the windy slopes of Haleakala. If you are into roughen it, this is great, but remember even though this is Hawaii, on the summit the nights can drop below freezing. But all in all it is an unbeiveable experience.
Unique Quality: Hosmer Grove lies in the cloud belt of Haleakala, just below the 7,000-foot level in the summit area. Be prepared for rain and cold weather. Nighttime temperatures can drop into the 30's; daytime highs average 50-65°F. The campground has picnic tables, BBQ grills, drinking water, and pit toilets. Sites are close together in an open, grassy area near the forest and shrubland of Hosmer Grove. A self-guided nature trail begins and ends at the campground. The forest comes to life in the early dawn with the many native birds in the area, making this a beautiful early morning hike.
Hosmer Grove campground has a limit of 50, and a limit of 3 night stay per month. Also remember there are no facilities to purchase food, gasoline, or supplies in the park
