Do we have to get Kauai camping permits before our arrival in Kauai?
It’s a better to obtain your Kauai camping permits before your trip. For most private campsites, which we always recommend first, you may secure your licenses on the internet and also in person in the respective office.
If you choose to stay at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you may request permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
In advance, the costs are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this particular application are bank 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 designated permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
How long does it take to obtain the camping permits?
No matter if you decide to camp at a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you choose to camp at a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it can take quite a while to get 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!
