  • Really fantastic park that should be attractive to all types of people: active, leisure, family, adventures. Be careful to study the weather in advance. 
  • This would be a great trip just driving up here. A great trip just staying on paved paths and lookouts. But is the best when you lace up those hiking boots, pack water and head out on the trail! So mu...  more »
  • Taking the drive up from Waimea to Koke'e is a must for any visitor to Kauai. For my money, there is no more beautiful place in the world on a clear day. Stop at each overlook, have a picnic or buy lu...  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.
