Mauna Kea State Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Great playground with clean bathrooms. Has picnic tables as well. Lots of cops in the area due to the protesters nearby. Make sure you are going the speed limit and have all your tags in order.

  • Great stop while crossing the island. It's quite high up in elevation, so I wouldn't stay too long it without sunscreen on. The play area is fun for kids. There's restrooms and picnic areas as well. Overall a stop worth making if you need to stretch your legs on the trip.

  • Great spot to stop to stretch your legs and also hit the bathroom. They restrooms are clean and we'll maintained. The park is great for kids and far enough from the road so you dont have to worry.

  • Very peaceful mind fresh air nice view good breeze. Its just full of alohaz. I love it i will bring my family and visit again. My kids love the play ground. I hope they will build one store for people that like to visit more. Also houses for rent atlease 2 nights if allowed. I really really admire this respectful and lovely place.

  • It's beautiful, has a play area for the kids to stretch their legs, and a nice rest area. Stop in. Be aware that the speed limit is enforced to this area, so if you skip it, do so at the speed limit
