1. Make sure the weather is appropriate for an overnight camping trip

Camping with bad weather is seriously a bad idea. So, before you plan anything specific, make sure to check the weather channel. The last thing you want is to spend the entire time stuck in a wet tent.

2. Make a list and rent your essential toddler camping gear on Maui

If this is not your first camping trip, you probably already know what you need. But just in case, here's a lost of the most essential items you'll most likely need to bring along with you:

Camping tent - of course, for an overnight stay, you'll need to rent a tent. Nothing says family fun more than having a sleepover with the kids!

Sunscreen and bug spray - bringing along some sunscreen is a must, especially for your kids. And the bug spray, trust us, you're gonna need it;

Bring enough clothes for your kids - children playing in nature tend to get quite dirty. Make sure you bring enough clothes for them so they can change;

Bring enough layers for the whole family - you'll be surprised at hoe chilly it can get overnight in Maui, so make sure you bring enough layers for everyone;

Rent a mattress - even on a camping trip, you can still make sure you and your family will get a good night's sleep!

Bring snacks - although you may find places to get a snack on your way to the camping site, it's best if you get a cooler bag and bring enough food, snacks and water with you anyway, especially for the kids.

On to the next important step: researching the best camping areas on Maui.

The island of Maui has myriad wonderful places you can choose from to go camping. Pick one that best fits your needs and 'book' your stay there in advance. Make sure the camping site you pick is family friendly and that there are plenty activities you can do there with the kids.
