WELCOME TO HAWAIʻI STATE PARKS
Hawaiʻi is the most remote archipelago on earth. Our reputation for unsurpassed natural beauty is reflected in Hawaii’s State Parks. The Hawaiʻi State Park System is composed of 50 parks encompassing approximately 30,000 acres on five major islands. These parks offer a variety of outdoor recreation and heritage opportunities. The park environments range from landscaped grounds with developed facilities to wildland areas with trails and primitive facilities.
We invite you to experience Hawaiʻi’s State Parks, to learn about our unique resources and history, and enjoy outdoor recreation and culture. As you visit, please help us protect Hawaiʻi’s fragile and irreplaceable resources for future generations.
