When entrance gates are locked for the night, vehicles will not be able to enter or leave the park. For more information on Kiholo and camping at Kiholo please watch the video below.

Park Curator Group – Hui Aloha Kiholo
Kiholo State Park Reserve is jointly managed by the Division of State Parks and the curator group Hui Aloha Kiholo. For more information about Hui Aloha Kiholo and their efforts to mālama Kiholo State Park Reserve please visit their website at https://www.huialohakiholo.org/
Due to impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Hawaii State Parks has incurred significant losses of revenue and funding sources resulting in an inability to fund portable toilets at some of our parks. Unfortunately, Kiholo is one of those parks. Hui Aloha Kiholo has worked hard to secure funding for portable toilets and rubbish bins for public use at Kiholo and we support their efforts. Our relationship with Hui Aloha Kiholo is an example of a successful Public-Private Partnership that benefits the land and the public. We appreciate their hard work and the services provided to Kiholo State Park Reserve and we hope you do too.
