Hiking and Camping Gear

There’s not a lot to choose from as far as outfitters go on Maui. But in Kahului you can get good boots at

  • Famous Footwear – is at Queen Ka’ahumanu Mall in Kahului an is probably the best place to look for hiking shoes and boots but there is also Walmart & Target in Kahului. Unfortunately there is not any specifically hiking related shoe stores on island. Bringing shoes you’re already comfortable with is best but make sure they are rugged, the ragged rocks of Maui’s lava rocks can shred old or less rugged footwear fairly easily.
  • Gear up with camping gear on Maui from Camp Haleakala’s, Maui Camping Gear. You can buy or rent portable stoves, tents, waterproofing spray, silverware, cooking pans, water filters, solar power, bedding, sleeping bags, hammocks, air mattresses, backpacks and more.
