MacKenzie State Recreation Area

9/7/18 - MACKENZIE STATE RECREATION AREA WILL REOPEN ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2018. The park had been closed since shortly after the beginning of the East Rift Zone eruption in early May. Park visitors should pay attention to closed area designations outside the park, and exercise extreme caution in newly formed lava areas due to steep dropoffs into deep water and the potential for strong ocean currents.

Hours Daily During Daylight Hours
Entrance Fee None


Low cliffed, wild volcanic coastline with picnicking in an ironwood grove. Good shore fishing. Old Hawaiian coastal trail traverses the park. (13.1 acres)
