Reservations for Paliku cabin go online Monday
The Maui News
Beginning Monday, reservations for the Paliku wilderness cabin will go live on Recreation.gov.
Registration will open up between 7 to 7:30 a.m. The first available date for the cabin reservation is Friday.
Reservations can be made up to six months in advance and will be available on a rolling six-month basis thereafter. Cabin reservations must be made online and cannot be made in the park or in person.
Due to the ongoing drought and water shortages, the remote Paliku wilderness cabin will be available by reservation for Friday to Sunday nights only. It will remain temporarily closed Monday-Thursday nights due to the ongoing drought. Backpackers staying at Paliku wilderness sites are advised to pack in water or fill up at Kapalaoa prior to arriving at Paliku as water may become unavailable without notice. Hosmer Grove Campground, Paliku and Holua wilderness campsites and cabins are available through Recreation.gov. The drive-up Kipahulu Campground remains closed.
The cost is $75 per night, for a maximum stay of three nights per 30-day period. Per CDC recommendations for building occupancy standards during the COVID-19 pandemic, cabin capacities have been temporarily reduced to a maximum of four occupants. There are only four bunks available in the cabins and cabin reservation holders should not exceed this four-person limit. Camping outside the cabin in nondesignated camping space is prohibited. Cabin permits are nontransferable. A printed reservation from the confirmation email must be carried at all times by the trip leader.
