This can be much more comfortable for you and your young children.

Kauai Camping Guide & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I go to any beach front for camping?
You can go to any beach, nevertheless, you should only set up your camp in official camping sites. This is the standard practice here on Kauai. We will give you a list of the ideal locations to check out and also to camp in. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or are we just able to go to official camping sites? If so, how much does it cost?
No, wild camping isn’t permitted in Kauai. You should only go camping in specific areas with secured camping permits. The associated fee is around $3 per night in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private camping grounds could be a little more. One particular advantage of these camping grounds is that you have complete access to amenities, like washrooms, showers and picnic tables. Please be aware that if you opt to go camping on the county camp sites, you are only permitted to set up the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we have to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is definitely a good idea to organize your Kauai camping permits prior to your arrival. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can secure your licenses on the internet and also on-the-spot in the respective office.
If you choose to camp at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you may obtain permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
Non-residents must pay three dollars per night up-front. Accepted payment methods with this application are cashier’s checks and money orders. But you don’t necessarily have to reserve your camping permits prior to your arrival. You could also get them at the various permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to obtain the camping permits?
No matter whether you decide to go to a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you choose to stay at a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. Permits can be bought at the permit offices on Kauai once you have arrived; in-person permits are given immediately.

Our Happy Clients!
Exploring Kauai with a rooftop camper is a fun and unique way to explore this beautiful island! Our family of 4 spent 12 fabulous days exploring and camping. The extra tent with the rooftop provided plenty of space for us…we had an amazing time! All communication with Jonathan and Jamie was smooth and easy. They are lovely people who genuinely want to provide a great experience.
Jamie and Jonathan were excellent hosts! Even though they were on vacation, Jonathan made all accommodations very easy and helped us with every step. Note: if you are under 25, make sure to let them know to make sure you are covered by insurance! Jonathan helped us work it out and we had a great time

Jamie and Jonathan are by far the very best experience with Airbnb we have ever had. Truly generous human beings with big hearts. They provided wonderful suggestions, amenities, and a wonderful 5 star experience. We will certainly rent again. For our first experience in Hawaii, they made sure it was second to none. If you’re coming to Hawaii to truly experience nature and looking for a ‘no nonsense’ and easy process to explore the island the way it was meant to be, you could not attain better hosts.
We had such an amazing trip with Jamie’s camper! Jamie and Jonathan were both so kind and took their time to explain to us the ins and out of our camper. Communication was easy and the beaches they recommend we visit were like paradise! Will rent again from them when we come back for sure!
The BEST way to experience the beautiful garden island! Not only a great service–transportation doubling as your lodging–but wonderful and warm hosts. Jonathan and Jamie were so kind and helpful. An absolutely wonderful trip to Kauai–thank you both!
