HAWAII NATIONAL PARK, Hawaiʻi – Planning to visit Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park this summer? Don’t bring cash.  

Starting May 26, ahead of Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial kickoff to summer, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park will no longer accept cash for entrance fees or passes. Only credit or debit cards and digital site passes will be accepted.
Entrance fees are an important source of revenue used to improve the visitor experience in national parks, including road and facility repairs and maintenance, trail improvements, visitor and resource protection services and more. Moving to a cashless system allows parks to be better stewards of visitor dollars by reducing the amount of time park staff spend managing cash, increasing the amount of fee revenue available to support critical projects and visitor services, and improving accountability and reducing risk.
