Feels like the top of the world - looking out at the wettest spot on earth!

So much to talk about up here. Located northwest on the island of Kauai, although it is easy to get to it does take a while to drive up here. Whereas Waimea canyon (right next store) is mostly rocky, Koke'e is green green tropical forest. It is a state park and there is a museum as well as food, restrooms... More

My daughter and I tried to visit as many waterfalls possible. Very happy with the ease and location. Good for families with small children too.

Koke`e State Park is north of Waimea Canyon at the top of the Na Pali Coast. It is high elevation cool tropical forests. This is where the average rain fall per year is 40 feet. The clouds are normally here. Just Beautiful.

This was a highlight for us. It is beautiful. Worth the drive up to it. The last two lookouts that overlook the Napali Coast were cloudy but if it had been clear, what a beautiful sight. The clouds broke apart for a brief second, just enough time for us to see a glimpse of it. Wow is all I can... More

We drove all the way here before seeing Waimea Canyon and were rewarded with stunning views through a beautiful valley to the nearby Napili coast. It is worth wandering away from the viewpoint, down the nearby track (strongly resembling a river bed, which it must be in heavy rain!) as far as you feel able. It is just a truly... More

After Waimea canyon, we planned a walk to access the real wildness interior of the island. We finally chose the Kaluapuli trail due to weather and for birds song and native trees. Lots of rain ... But even with correct weather, we found it is a walk like in many forest elsewhere, even with the blackberries that are invading. People... More

Growing up our ohana would go stay overnight at Kokee Cabins. This is very special place,that one day u might not be able to stay over night. Being able to drive up mauka,to 10°cooler place,w/sweet smells of the tropical green forest, birds singing to no one, waterfalls, impressive Waimea Canyon, u feel like ur on a different planet.

Past Waimea Canyon, Kokee Park is breathtakingly beautiful. We enjoyed a nice lunch at Kokk Lodge after we had gone to Kalalau Lookout and Pu'u o Kila Lookout. We also did part of Pihea Trail. If you have children be cautious here as the drop off is long. For most tourists that are going to Waimea Canyon this will fill... More

Drove out to this area and visited the center. Even though it was closed there was enough information to organize our hike into the canyon and surrounding area.

This is a nice state park with plenty to see and do. There is a lodge here, a restaurant, bathrooms (with good ventilation!), a museum, short hiking trail, and a campground. We recommend stopping in!
