Great park for leisurely walks, scenic views, picnics and camping. Admission is free with ample parking, although, parking near the visitor center fills up fast. Suggest picking up a map at the visitor center first. Allow at least 1-2 hours for a walkabout or you...More

Seems popular with folks taking walks or jogs through the grounds. Not too many flowers but plenty of atmosphere. A couple buildi gs have activities for visitors, like botanical drawing group on Wednesday morning, or art exhibits.

FYI you cannot stop to take that quintessential photo at the entry that you see on Instagram! As there is a gate guard there who keeps traffic moving, but we still enjoyed the lovely grounds, and were surprised to learn that you can camp here!!

I booked a camping permit on the parks website, I think $30 for 3 nights stay and I booked a week in advance. We ended up staying only one night because it rained heavily and our cheap K-mart tent leaked water. The park is beautiful...More

Great areas to take pictures of scenic Koolau mountain range. Yes, Kaneohe rains a lot but when it does you are rewarded with many waterfalls and beautiful rainbows. Locals like to go there to walk for exercise. You can reserve pavilion for gatherings and there...More
