  • During rainy season, the views can be socked in with clouds. We picked a relatively good weather day to go in late February. When we arrived at the Koke'e Museum at 10 am, staff told us GO NOW to the ...  more »
  • Around 10 miles going up a mountain. Two lanes. Place to stop to overlook but not necessary. Winding roads. No gas stations. Great views driving up and back. Nice small town at the bottom with local e...  more »

  • Beautiful setting on Kauai. If it weren't flanked by the spectacular Napali Coast State Wilderness Park and stunning Waimea Canyon State Park, this would still be a destination in itself. The only downside is that this section of road is in the worst condition of the entire stretch, and the museum and restaurant aren't as nice as I would expect for the remoteness.
  • I am considering this review as a review of the facilities up in the meadow. The canyon is great but the restaurant is quaint but I would not eat there. A definite lack of "green" food. The museum has been spruced up and I hope they don't modernize it...its is so funky.Also the folks working up at both the restaurant and especially the museum are so nice. You can ask them about birds, train rain etc...Remember, please: to Tread Lightly on Kauai.
  • Great camping spots that are decently maintained. Water is available. Bathrooms (flush toilets!) are in need of maintenance but serviceable. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the place is overrun by the native feral chickens that love to wake you up at 4:30 with crowing that even ear plugs can't deal with.
  • Absolutely stunning views all along an excellent driving road. Arrive earlier in the day to beat some of the traffic and the fog that usually rolls in later in the day. Food at the lodge is good, but the portions are on the small side. Cool selection of local goods at the gift shop and friendly staff!
  • The park takes up a portion of Waimea Canyon and offers spectacular views. There's tent camping and a few cabins, plus a museum and restaurant. Remember to gas up before you come up the canyon road. Bring water, snacks and sunscreen. If it's cloudy, wait a while and see if it will clear up. The weather changes quickly on Kaua'i. Leave with memories of some of the prettiest sights on earth.
