We were in Big Island in early September and found that majority of the Park is closed till September 22, and the only part we could visit is the Kahuka unit. There are a few trails inside the Kahuka unit that one can walk/hike and...More
This is obviously a must-see if you are visiting the Big Island of Hawaii. Although I believe it is closed at the moment but hopefully reopening soon. Glad I had the chance to see everything in February, before the big lava flow. Was captivated by...More
Wow what an experience! At first I wasn't excited about this visit but boy did I change my mind. Great trails to hike, fabulous viewing platform to watch lava lake, informative park rangers, a easy driving road to explore park. It has it all! The...More

The staff at the Visitors Center were friendly, informative and made...More

Every time we go to the Big Island we go to this park and spend at least 1 or 2 days there. There is so much to see and experience. I was able to hike to the dormant side of the volcano just 3 years...More
I believe Highway 11 is still open. However, the area with the black sand beach is downwind of the summit and so the air quality and potential for volcanic ash in that area is present. I haven't been over there since just... More
I believe Highway 11 is still open. However, the area with the black sand beach is downwind of the summit and so the air quality and potential for volcanic ash in that area is present. I haven't been over there since just before the eruptions so I don't have a first hand report.
