Mauna Kea State Park to close for repairs


Mauna Kea State Park will close July 1 for renovations and remain closed until further notice.

Temporary restrooms will be provided at the administrative building fronting the park’s main entrance. The public will be notified when the park is reopened. Until then, no camping reservations will be taken and permits required for overnight use will not be issued.

On July 1, Hawaii County will assume responsibility for Mauna Kea State Park. The shutdown is needed to expedite the work and ensure the public’s safety while the park’s restrooms, parking lot and picnic area are refurbished. Maintenance crews will be using heavy equipment to improve the park located near the 34-mile marker of the Daniel K. Inouye Highway, also known as Saddle Road.
