Just truly wonderful up here. The selling point was the view down over the Na Pali to the ocean but there was so much more. Its pleasantly cool up here and the road is nicely paved. Enjoyed the switchbacks. Get to like them, there are 15 miles of them. There a museum, a restaurant with so-so food, a small unspectacular... More

Beautiful lookouts of Kalalau Valley. The roads are a little curvy and narrow at times but make sure to go to the museum to learn more about the island! We went to the canyon one day and came back the next to go further. It is a long drive so make sure you have plenty of gas.

The visitor's center is informative, with a nice display of local history. There are picnic tables outside, as well as a restaurant if you didn't pack your lunch. We packed our lunch and used the picnic tables, where we were quickly joined by several of Kauai's famous chickens. Our kids loved that. Above the visitor's center are a couple of... More

The visitor center has a good display of local history, the lodge has a dining room for those who did not bring food, there are cabins available for rental, and nice picnic facilities. However the star of the show is the extensive network of trails. Get a good map and plan to spend days being awed by the variety of... More

The hiking is beautiful, but challenging! The trail to the swamp was muddy and slippery, the hikes to the water falls are a lot of up and down, but the water falls are beautiful!

The family and I did not do the hike, but took in the view from The Puu o Kila lookout and were blown away by the Vista. It is the reason you come to Kauai and even my hard to impress kids were blown away.

We spent an enjoyable day visiting the West side of Kauai from our location on the South Shore in Poipu. We made stops along the way, enjoying the beautiful vistas.

Koke'e State Park is very peaceful. Beautiful surroundings and very good tent camping and hiking. The nature center is also worth stopping at while visiting Waimea Canyon.

If you go to Kauai you really must drive up Waimea Canyon and look at the views. It is a beautiful place. we were lucky and had unobstructed views, which is not always the case as there is frequent rain here. You can see beautiful valley's and the Napali Coast.

My wife and I were here on an absolutely gorgeous Tuesday in January 2015 (13 Jan). We were enjoying being able to take our time and thoroughly enjoy Waimea Canyon and this state park. We were so thrilled to be able to take numerous photographs of the gorgeous, incredible panoramic views of the Kalalau Valley from both the Kalalau Lookout... More
