Kalaupapa National Historical Park issues permits for events such as filming, photography, public assembly, religious events, and other park uses. The National Park Service may authorize a special use permit providing the activity will not cause harm to the park's resources or values, visitor experiences, or the purpose for which the park was established.
Special Use Permits
Special Use Permits are required for short-term activities that:
- Take place within the park and benefit an individual, group, or organization
- Require NPS management to protect park resources and the public interest
- Are not prohibited by law or regulation
Download the application for a Special Use permit. The submission of an application and processing fee ($100.00) does not guarantee a permit will be authorized. In addition to the application fee, the park is authorized to recover and retain all costs associated with monitoring and managing special use permits, as well as request a location fee, with the exception of First Amendment activities. Please allow 90 days for processing of your request. For more information, please contact the park at 808-567-6802. Applicants must also obtain Visitor Permits from the State Department of Health.
