Big Island Sights

Wailuku River State Park (Boiling Pots)

  • Hilo
  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Fodor's Review

Four separate streams fall into a series of circular pools here, forming the Peepee Falls. The resulting turbulent action—best seen after a good rain—has earned this stretch of the Wailuku River the nickname Boiling Pots. There's no swimming allowed at Peepee Falls or anywhere in the Wailuku River, due to dangerous currents and undertows. The falls are 3 miles northwest of Hilo off Waianuenue Avenue; keep to the right when the road splits and look for the sign. Gate opens at 7 am and closes at 6 pm.
