Hawaiʻi's state parks are home to some of its most iconic and celebrated landscapes, cultural treasures, and recreational opportunities. There are 50 parks across the state, covering a total area of around 30,000 acres. These parks can be found everywhere, from the urban sprawl of Honolulu, to the remote and rugged wild lands of Hawaiʻi Island.
