HONOLULU — Following the severe storms which heavily impacted the state last week, all State Parks have reopened, including Polipoli Spring State Park on Maui and Napali Coast State Wilderness Park on Kaua‘i. Following repairs to damaged trail sections, the Kalalau Trail, providing overland access to camping areas within Napali Coast SWP, opened Friday afternoon to day hikers and campers holding valid permits.
Persons who held a camping permit for Kalalau valley camping area that were unable to camp during the park closure between March 9 through 15, 2012, are eligible for a refund. To request a refund they should contact the main State Parks Administrative office on O‘ahu at (808) 587-0300 and be prepared to leave a message with their last name and permit number.
Haena State Park on Kauai and Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area are open.
“We appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation with these closures for safety, while while needed repairs were made and conditions improved,” said William J. Aila, DLNR Chairperson
