Drive cautiously - Endangered birds land on roadway
Nēnē (Hawaiian geese) are nesting in the park and may land on or frequent park roads and parking lots. Drivers are reminded to drive at the posted speed limits and exercise caution.
The only lodging available in the park is found in our campgrounds and Wilderness Cabins. The Kīpahulu Area has a drive-up campground available, while the Summit Area has a drive-up campground and is your access point to the trails leading to our Wilderness campgrounds and Wilderness cabins.
Kula provides the closest hotels and bed-and-breakfast lodging to the Summit Area. The nearest to the Kīpahulu Area is in the Hāna area. Please contact the Maui Visitor Bureau for more information on the lodging available outside of Haleakalā National Park.
