After you have traversed the very rocky, bumpy road through lava fields to get to the beach portion of this state park, you will be glad you came. The parking is at a premium, so you might need to grab the first place along the...More

I tried Google, searched for Kekaha Kai state park, dog friendly and got a website - quote "Dogs may join their owners on the premises but must remain leashed and must also refrain from entering any bodies of water. There is not a designated dog play area nor is there any water provided for canine or human consumption. There are no bathrooms available on the grounds. Owners should come to the park with drinking water, a dog dish, and poop bags to ensure they have access to all of the things that they may need during their visit to Kekaha Kai State Park. "
