 About Ka‘elepulu Pond (Enchanted Lake) and ELRA

Ka‘elepulu Pond, located in Windward O‘ahu, is also known as Enchanted Lake and includes about 95 acres of water, wetlands and small, low islands. It connects to the ocean at Kailua Beach Park via Ka‘elepulu Canal. Access to the lake is restricted to residents who are members of the Enchanted Lake Residents Association (ELRA).

ELRA is a non-profit organization that holds title to and manages a 79.471 acre portion of Ka‘elepulu Pond, also known as Enchanted Lake. The board of the ELRA has taken a pro-active role in the management of the pond, with the ultimate goal of restoring Kaelepulu to support diverse fisheries resources and recreational activities in clean water.

Berm OpeningLake resident Bob Bourke works with the city to coordinate berm openings to maximize benefits to the lake. The berm opening in late January combined with rainy weather has kept the berm open for more than two weeks. We should be seeing more mullet in the lake!
