If this is a problem, we provide an additional tent with each of our packages which you could put up on the ground next to your camper vehicle. This can be more comfortable for both you as well as your little ones.
How many people can your camping trucks accommodate?

Best Spots For Camping Out On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I visit any beach front to camp?
You may go to any beach, nevertheless, you can only put up your camp in official camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We’ll provide you with a list of the best places to explore and also to camp in. Please remember that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t permitted on Kauai.
Are we allowed to camp in the wild or can we only visit designated camping grounds? If so, what is the fee?
No, wild camping isn’t permitted on the island of Kauai. You should only camp in specified areas with secured camping permits. The charge is roughly $3 per night in most Kauai county parks, though private camping grounds may be a bit more.

Prior to our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is definitely a better to organize your Kauai camping permits before your arrival. For the majority of private camping grounds, which we always recommend first, you can get your permits 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 can obtain permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
Non-residents have to pay three dollars per night in advance. Accepted payment methods with this application are bank checks and also money orders. Nevertheless, you don’t have to book your camping licenses prior to your arrival. You can also obtain them at the different permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to get the camping permits?
Whether you decide to go to a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you decide to go to a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it might take quite some time to receive your permits. Permits can be bought at the license offices on Kauai upon arrival; in-person permits are issued 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!
