HĀ‘ENA STATE PARK, NĀPALI COAST SWP (KALALAU TRAIL), POLIHALE STATE PARK, PORTIONS OF WAILUA RIVER STATE PARK ON KAUAʻI ARE CLOSED DUE TO FLOOD DAMAGE

Posted on Apr 14, 2018

Hāʻena State Park and the adjacent Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park (including the Kalalau Trail) on Kauai are closed due to flood damage affecting both the parks, as well as the highway and bridges which access the parks.  Closures will likely be for an extended period of time, as damage assessments and repairs must be completed.

Portions of Wailua River State Park experienced severe flooding impacts, particularly the areas along teh river course.  The North Fork area is closed pending damage and safety assessment.  Areas of the Marina were flooded and impacted by floating debris.  A portion of the Wailua marina is being used as an emergency staging area to facilitate debris removal from the river mouth.  The park overlooks, waterfall viewpoints, and heiau sites are open and accessible.

Polihale State Park remains closed as repairs to the flooded entry road are being procured.

All other State Parks on Kaua’i are open.
