Spencer State Beach Park is located near the popular white sand beaches on the north Kohala Coast. With an arid landscape this particular camping location tends to be hot in the daytime with cool nights.
The beach is protected by a large reef and the breakwater of the harbor. The water is usually calm enough for the entire family to enjoy swimming here.
This campground site is located within walking distance to the historic site of Puukohola Heiau. The remains of this site are significant because of the locations position for the conquest of Hawaii. A respected kahuna (priest) named Kapoukahi suggested building a luakini heiau (sacrificial temple) to gain the favor of the war god Kūkaʻilimoku.
