MacKenzie Park
This is a nice out of the way spot to pitch your tent and at least have toilets and picnic benches and a place to get in out of the rain. The red road that runs past here is overgrown so much that it appears that you are driving through a tunnel in the forest canopy. I remember when I was back in Kona once hearing the stories of some tourists who got spooked out of here because it seemed too erie for them at night. Since I live near here and have driven this road many times, I always chuckle when I think of them now

The coast here is pretty much a shear 30 foot cliff as you can see with usually a nice salt spray to back you off if you get too near the edge.

The Park is named after a state and county park ranger who spent most of his productive labor further on down the road towards Kilauea.
