If this is a concern, we also provide an additional tent with each package which you could put up on the ground beside your camping vehicle. This could be more convenient for you and also your young children.
How many people can your camper vehicles fit?
Our camper trucks fit 3 people maximum, though in case there are more within your party, we do provide an additional camping tent, as well. With this, we are able to allow for as much as five individuals. All of our trucks have 5 seatbelts.

Certainly, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best places to visit & go camping on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Specifics About Camping Permits
Can I go to any beach front to camp?
You could go to any beach, nevertheless, you should only put up your camp in official camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We will supply you with a list of the best locations to check out and also to go camping. Please remember that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t allowed on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or are we only able to go to official camping grounds? If so, how much will it cost?
No, wild camping isn’t allowed in Kauai. You can only go camping in specific areas with a valid camping permit. The charge is roughly $3 per night stay in most Kauai county campgrounds, though private campgrounds may be a little more. The good thing about these campsites is that you will have total access to facilities, including showers, bathrooms & picnic kitchen tables. Please remember that if you decide to go camping on the county campgrounds, you are only allowed to use the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It’s a better to get your Kauai camping permits before your trip. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can secure your permits online and also in person in the designated office.
If you opt to stay at a county campground and use a ground tent, you may obtain permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
Up-front, the charges are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this particular application are money orders and cashier’s checks. Nevertheless, you don’t have to reserve your camping permits prior to your arrival. You could also obtain them at the different permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
What is the processing time for obtaining camping permits?
Whether you choose to camp at a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you decide to go to a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it might take quite some time to obtain your permits. Permits can be obtained at the license offices on Kauai once you have arrived; in-person permits are given on-the-spot.

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!
