CAMPING ON MAUNA KEA CONTINUES TO BE PROHIBITED

News Release from DLNR October 13, 2015

(HONOLULU) – As a follow up to Friday’s court decision invalidating the emergency rule prohibiting overnight presence along the upper Mauna Kea road corridor, the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) reminds people that camping in forest reserves and public hunting areas without a permit remains illegal under Hawaii Administrative Rules.

Additional rules pertaining to activities on Mauna Kea and in all State of Hawaii Forest Reserves and public hunting areas include:
  • Using motor vehicles without due caution for the rights or safety of others or in a manner that endangers any person or property.
  • Camping or residing or any construction, improvement or occupancy or use of any structure within a forest reserve without a written permit from the State Board of Land and Natural Resources.
  • Damage or disturbance of any property of improvement.
  • Disorderly conduct, which creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act which is not performed under any authorized license or permit.

In Natural Area Reserves on Mauna Kea and elsewhere, Hawaii Administrative Rules prohibit the removal, damage or disturbance of any geological or paleontologic features or substances.

The DLNR will continue to enforce these regulations.
