Dry Conditions on the Coast at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

October 29, 2012

 Attention coastal hikers and overnight campers: due to low rainfall, the water catchment tank at Halape is completely dry, and the tank at Keauhou is nearly empty. If you are planning to hike and camp along the coast, you must carry in your own water source.

All overnight campers must have a permit (free), available at the park’s Visitor Emergency Operations Center (VEOC).  The VEOC is open daily from 8 am. to 4 p.m.
