Rockfall warning and area closed signs have been posted in the Kalalau trail between the self-composting toilet facility and Kolea Falls.

The closure affects 16 campsites along the trail and areas mauka of the trail.

The campground remains open, but a portion will be closed indefinitely.

Camping areas will be identified to accommodate park users for the upcoming spring and summer recreation period.
