Houla Cabin, one of three remote wilderness cabins available to visitors through a reservation.
HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK, Maui (KHNL) - Changes have been made to how visitors can reserve for a wilderness cabin on Maui.
Starting in September, Haleakala National Park will no longer use a lottery system to select cabin users. Instead, all reservations will be taken over the phone on a first come basis.
Reservations may be made by calling (808) 572-4400 during the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. seven days a week. All reservations require a credit card.
The park is working with a local vendor to develop an online cabin reservation system. Park officials say ending the lottery and converting to a credit card based system is the first step in that transition.
The new online system is expected sometime this fall.
