Repair Project to Reopen Kolekole Gulch Park Restrooms

Upcoming repairs to the Kolekole Gulch Park sewage system will allow the Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation to reopen the park’s restrooms.

A private contractor will start fixing the park’s septic system on Monday, September 23, and is expected to be finished by the end of November. The Department will continue providing portable toilets until the work is completed and the restrooms become operational.

No permits for camping or exclusive use of the park’s pavilions will be issued until the project is completed, which is currently anticipated to occur on November 29. Located about 14 miles north of Hilo, Kolekole Gulch Park will remain open during the construction phase. Park visitors may continue using, on a first-come, first-served basis, the two small pavilions closest to the ocean.

The Department of Parks and Recreation apologizes for any inconvenience the temporary suspension of camping and pavilion rentals may cause. It thanks all park users, campers and the general public for their patience and understanding while the important construction work is occurring.

For more information, please contact Jason Armstrong, Public Information Officer, at 345-9105, or jarmstrong@co.hawaii.hi.us.
