Kunia Camp (also called Kunia) is an unincorporated community on the island of Oahu in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. It lies along Hawaii Route 750 northwest of downtown Honolulu, the county seat of Honolulu County.[1] Its elevation is 883 feet (269 m).[2] Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office (under the name of Kunia), with the ZIP code of 96759.[3]

The community was a plantation village for a Del Monte pineapple plantation. The plantation closed in 2006; two years later, the community's land was given to the Hawaii Agriculture Research Center, allowing its residents to keep their leases.[4] The community was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.[5]
