  • They have some of the cleanest bathrooms here. There are nice shaded grill areas also. We found it to be very peaceful.  more »
  • This Park is pretty small. You can park at the end of the road. We walk up to the belvedere (Kalaupapa Look out) on a landscaped trail (wheelchair, it will). The forest is beautiful, the trees are special and the view is magnificent on the peninsula. Then you can walk on the other side (of the toilet building). The trail is steeper, less developed (is not in a wheelchair) and it goes to the rock in the shape of a phallus. It is a sacred site. Finally, we can retrace our steps in the car and stop in place for a picnic. However, the view is less beautiful. No view on the peninsula. It is however, under the trees, to eat on picnic tables. In all, it's a nice tour of just a few hours.

  • Good place for tent camping. Clean and functional restroom facilities. Plenty of grassy area, some shaded, some in the sun, though locals ignore the prohibition on driving vehicles on the grass which makes some of the areas muddy and unsuitable for pitching a tent. There is only one grill, so that could be an issue if there are multiple people camping. It's not clear if the water is potable or not, but it is clean enough that I had no qualms drinking it after chemically treating it.
  • Beautiful view and never crowded.
