“Great spot for learning about Hawaiin history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Stopped here on way up north on the big Island. Learned a lot about the history of Hawaii. The Rangers were great and answered our questions, and are a wealth of information.

“Important Hawaiian history”

A great place to learn a lot of Hawaiian history. Make sure to walk the trails and get some pictures of the colorful weaver spiders in a few of the trees.

“An important piece of Hawaiian history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

We really enjoyed our visit to Puukohola National Historic Park. Great visitor center, with helpful staff. There is also an audio tour available through your cellphone. The historical significance of the site, and the information provided to visitors, are not to be missed. Wear sunscreen and enjoy your stroll along the path of history.
