Glamping Kauai

Sure, Kauai’s alluring scenery could seduce even the most seasoned traveller, but why settle for basic camping when you can glamp in style? At Kauai Rooftop Campers, we make the extraordinary accessible. We’re not just your ticket to explore Kauai; we’re your passport to do it with unparalleled comfort.

Rooftop Tents: Your Five-Star Room Under the Stars

Here’s the scenario: you’ve embarked on your Kauai adventure but want to avoid the conventional pitfalls of outdoor sleeping—uneven ground, pesky bugs, you name it, there’s always something to interfere with your comfort. 

Enter our rooftop tents. As roomy as a queen-sized bed and armed with 3-inch foam mattresses, these tents aren’t just for sleeping; they’re for sleeping well and sleeping in style.

Convenience Beyond the Horizon

When we say ready-to-go, we mean it. No need to fumble with tent poles; our tents set up in a snap. Because why should you wrestle with camping gear when you could be savoring a Kauai sunset? Plus, we throw in unlimited miles. 

Just meet the minimum rental of two days, and you can go glamping as long as you please. Factor in our transparent rates, and you’re looking at pure glamping bliss. Our rates are based on calendar days and tweaked seasonally. Even better, there are never any hidden fees.

Safety and Requirements

We value your safety as much as you do. To that end, please bring your driver’s license and comprehensive insurance details. If you hail from foreign shores, a passport is a must. Trust us; it’s all straightforward, no fine print to squint at.

Every Rental Is a Step Toward a Better World

Choosing Kauai Rooftop Campers isn’t just an upgrade to your travel plans; it’s an upgrade to someone’s life. We’re proud partners of the humanitarian organization Embracing the World. A slice of our annual revenue trickles down to global charities. Rest easy in your rooftop tent, knowing you’ve made a tangible difference.

Great experience with this company. They are very communicative and want to ensure you have a good trip and this is obvious with the lengths they go. The rental was in good condition. Jenni and Chantal were super friendly and would happily rent from them again!

My friend (first time camping) and I really enjoyed the approach that Kauai Rooftop Campers provide! Riding and camping on top of a 4Runner was outstanding. The setup system is quite easy and intuitive, Jeni (from Kauai Rooftop Campers) made sure we had all the info needed. We were able to interact with other campers who also were booking though Kauai Rooftop Campers, all of them seemed pleased with the experience! We had to rebook twice but everything went very well in the end. We had an issue with one of the State camping sites we booked for (Milloli´i beach) because we didn’t know Kauai, nevertheless, Jeni and Dona (Kumu Camp´s owner) were extremely helpful and very responsive. So, I would highly recommend Kauai Rooftop Campers! Additional notes and recommendations: We agree that Kumu Camp is a great spot to stay. There are Metal/Plastic/Glass bins for recycling (even a compost bin), so make sure you don’t dispose of those recyclables in the main garbage. Please be mindful, compact metal & plastic in order to improve space, time and resources. Don’t forget to leave every place better than you found it. We always had a container/bag at hand to collect the garbage at the camp, beaches, and other places. Microplastics and comercial tobacco butts are becoming a big issue everywhere! We advise you not to camp in Milloli´i beach unless you have access to a boat, and the time and the knowledge for an extreme adventure. NOTE: There isn’t that much info about that site out there. Blessings!!

As a family of 4, we combined a rooftop tent + ground tent, and it worked perfectly! The service from Kauai Rooftop Campers was excellent, they were really flexible (we even got an upgrade!) and they allowed us to store our excess luggage in their buildings for the duration of our trip. Jeni even came to us when there was a small issue, so nothing but compliments for the service we got! We stayed both at Kumu & at Koke’e state campground and had an abolute blast!

Beste Art Kauai zu erkunden. Wir hatten uns spontan dazu entschieden, da Hotel + Mietwagen schon sehr teuer sind. Buchung hat auch einen Tag for Antritt problemlos funktioniert! Hier bekommt man ein Camping Komplettpaket, alles was man braucht ist dabei. Man muss Camping plätze im voraus reservieren. Für County parks kostet das lediglich 3$ und für State parks 10$. Achtung, man kann nicht am selben Tag reservieren sondern immer nur ein Tag im voraus! Diese müsste man eig. ausdrucken oder zumindest downloaden, da es an manchen Locations kein Empfang gibt (haben wir gemacht wurden jedoch nie kontrolliert). Diese sind zum Teil auch an super coolen Orten, die auch nur mit einem Geländewagen erreichbar sind. Deshalb auch gut Essen und Trinken einkaufen, da es dort nichts zu kaufen gibt. Die Campingplätze haben oft lediglich eine Toilette mit fließendem Wasser (manchmal auch nur ein Plumpsklo). Für drei Personen sollte man schon um die 100$ pro Tag für Essen und Trinken einplanen. Komplette Küche ist dabei sodass man auch immer Essen zubereiten kann. Das Rooftop tent ist super bequeme und stabil (auch bei Orkanartigen Winden!). Aufbau ist auch super leicht. Leider ist es bei den meisten staatlichen Campingplätzen theoretisch “verboten”, da man nicht mit dem Auto auf den Platz fahren kann. Es ist auch noch ein normales Zelt dabei, bei den abgelegen Plätzen im Westen hatte wir aber nie ein Problem einen guten Platz auch für das Rooftop tent zu finden. Alles in allem kann ich die Vermietung nur weiterempfehlen. Spezielle wenn man auch den Westen i.e. das Weimea Valley/off-road erkunden will. Man bekommt auch noch einen Tollen reise-guide physisch mit aktuellen Karten (manche off-road straßen fehlen leider auf Google maps) und digital auf Google maps (pins).

Camping on a Jeep Rubicon, that is an experience. We had a mega fun. The people from Kauai Rooftop Campers are extremely helpful and very friendly. They help with all questions. The next campground is Kumu Camping and is highly recommended. We will definitely come back again and book a Jeep Rubicon again.

This was my second time using Kauai Rooftop Campers. If you like camping in beautiful places, this is for you! Your vehicle comes equipped with lots of practical camping gear too. Ms. Jeni will probably get you checked in and she’s very helpful, and nice, and informative. I’ll be back!

Below are Some Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an age requirement to rent from you?

We would rather like to do business with clients who are actually 25 years and older due to our insurance coverage restrictions. On the other hand, based upon your needs, whenever possible, we strive to be accommodating.

If you are younger than twenty-five, consider checking with your insurance company to determine if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, and then call us.

Could you accommodate adults who have children?

Absolutely! Please keep in mind that with our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb up a little ladder. If this is a problem, we also provide an extra camping tent with each of our packages which you could put up on the ground next to the camper truck. This may be more convenient for you and your children.

What is the max. capacity of your trucks?

We can accommodate three people at most, although if there are more in your party, we do offer an additional camping tent, as well. With this, we can easily accommodate up to five people. All of our vehicles have 5 seatbelts.

What about surfboards?

Certainly, our company offers both surfboards and boogie boards and fins upon request for a fee. Simply inform us beforehand if you want to rent one, so that we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.

Do we get a guidebook or a map with the greatest hiking trails and beaches to explore on Kauai?

Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best locations to visit and camp out on Kauai.

Top Spots For Camping Outdoors On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ

Can I go to any beach front for camping?

You could go to any beach, however, you should only put up your camp in designated camping grounds. Here on Kauai, this is the usual procedure. We’ll give you a list of the top locations to visit 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 only able to go to official camping sites? If so, how much will it cost?

No, wild camping is not allowed on the island of Kauai. You may only camp in designated areas with secured camping permits. The associated fee is around $3 per night in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private campsites could be a little more. The good thing about these campgrounds is that you will have complete access to facilities, such as showers, washrooms & picnic tables. Please be aware that if you choose to go camping on the county campsites, 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 a better to obtain your Kauai camping license before your trip. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can secure your licenses online and also on-the-spot in the designated office.

If you choose to stay at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you can request permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” web page.

In advance, the costs are $3 per night for nonresidents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this application are money orders & cashier’s checks. But you don’t have to reserve your camping permits before your planned arrival. You may also get them at the designated permit offices on the island, which is usually easier.

What is the processing time for getting camping permits?

No matter if you choose to camp at a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you choose to go to a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. You might receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the various permit offices on the island; in-person you will get them immediately.

We at Kauai Rooftop Campers are proud to serve the entire Garden Island Kauai – always with Aloha!
