Haleakalā Visitor Centers to Close During Government Shutdown

During the shutdown of the federal government due to the lapse of appropriations, national parks will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. Park roads, lookouts and trails at Haleakalā National Park will remain accessible to visitors, but emergency and rescue services will be limited. Sunrise reservations are still required for entrance from 3 am – 7 am. To make reservations go to www.recreation.gov There will be no entrance fee for entering the park.

Visitor Centers in the Summit District and the Kipahulu District and the Pools of ‘Oheʻo in the Kīpahulu District are closed. All park interpretive and educational programs are canceled. The National Park Service will not be providing services for campgrounds, including maintenance, janitorial, check-in/check-out, and cabin permits. However, visitors in Holua, Paliku, Hosmer Grove and Kipahulu tent campgrounds will not be asked to leave unless safety concerns are required.

Because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions.
