LOST on Oahu!

I suffered through all of the seasons of Lost with much of the rest of the television watching public.  I really enjoyed the show andI loved the many beautiful places that were used during the filming.  Although the show has since gone off the air, I still wanted to find a few of the filming spots while we were on the island of Oahu. 

During our self-guided tour around the island of Oahu tour, we went all the way to the end of the road…literally.  We drove until the road ended at a dirt road that is only for government use.  A few minutes before the road ends, you will drive past YMCA Camp Erdman.  It might look a little familiar…but then again, it might not.


I was excited that a couple of you knew that this was the home of The Others in LOST when I posted the picture on Photo Friday.  It has since had a paint job so it might not look too familiar but they were indeed the homes of Ben and Juliet! 

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • This is a working YMCA camp.  There are families and children staying in the little cabins so you cannot just wander around at will. 
  • The YMCA offers $5 self-guided tours of the camp.  You must register at the camp Welcome Center. 
  • You can take pictures while you are there but you are not allowed to include any of the camp attendees in your pictures.

    Aaah, that’s where it is! I watch the first season but have to admit I gave up after that. Still think I’d do a location hunt if I was in the area though!

    it sounds like a great place for a family

    Wow – that is so cool…I would have never guessed but now that you said it, it’s sooo obvious!!! Fun – thanks!

    I will *so* seek out some LOST sets/scenes on next trip to Oahu — whenever that might be!

    How crazy. I used to watch LOST like an addict, but when I was in Oahu a few months ago I completely forgot that the TV show was shot there. Talk about a missed opportunity! I’m glad YOU remembered, at least.
