Of course! Please keep in mind that with our rooftop campers you’ll have to climb one small ladder. If this sounds like a concern, we also offer an extra camping tent with all of our packages which you may put up on the ground next to your camper vehicle. This can be more comfortable for both you and also your little ones.
What is the maximum capacity of your trucks?
The roof top tent camper trucks fit 3 individuals at most, though if there are more in your party, we do provide an extra camping tent, too. With this, we can easily allow for as much as five individuals. All of our trucks have 5 seatbelts.

Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best places to check out & go camping on Kauai.
Best Locations For Camping Out On Kauai & Specifics About Camping Permits
Am I able to go to any beach for camping?
You may go to any beach, nevertheless, you should only put up your camp in designated camping grounds. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We will supply you with a list of the greatest 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 just able to visit designated camping sites? If so, what is the fee?
No, wild camping is not allowed on the island of Kauai. You can only go camping in specific locations with a current camping permit. The fee is roughly $3 per night stay in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private camp sites may be a little more. One advantage of these campsites is that you will have total access to facilities, like washrooms, showers & picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you choose to go camping on the county campgrounds, you are only allowed to set up the ground tent.

Do we need to get Kauai camping permits before our arrival in Kauai?
It’s a better to obtain your Kauai camping license before your arrival. For most private campsites, which we always recommend first, you may get your licenses online and also on-the-spot in the designated office.
If you opt to camp at a county campsite and set up a ground tent, you may obtain permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
In advance, the fees are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Payment methods accepted with this particular application are money orders and cashier’s checks. Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to reserve your camping licenses before your planned arrival. You may also obtain them at the designated permit offices in Kauai, which is usually easier.
What is the processing time for getting camping permits?
If you decide to stay at a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to stay at a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite a while to obtain your permits. Permits can be bought at the permit offices on Kauai once you have arrived; in-person permits are issued 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!
