Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age requirement to rent from you?
We try to do business with customers who are actually 25 years and above because of our insurance policy restrictions. But, based upon your situation, whenever we can, we strive to be accommodating.
In case you are younger than twenty-five, try contacting your insurance provider to find out if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can call us.
Are your rooftop tents family friendly?
Absolutely! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb a little ladder. If this sounds like a concern, we offer an extra camping tent with all of our packages which you can easily put up on the ground next to your camping vehicle. This can be much more comfortable for both you and also your little ones.
What is the maximum capacity of your camper vehicles?
The roof top tent camping trucks sleep 3 individuals maximum, though if there are more in your party, we do offer an extra camping tent, as well. With this, we can easily fit as much as 5 individuals. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Yes, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers both surfboards & boogie boards as well as fins on request for a small fee. Simply let us know beforehand if you would like to rent one, so we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we receive a travel guide or perhaps a map with the greatest beaches and hiking trails to explore on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best locations to visit and go camping on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Camping Permits FAQ
Am I able to visit any beach for camping?
You may drive up to any beach, however, you should only set up your camp in designated camping sites. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We will provide you with a list of the ideal locations to check out and to go camping. Please note that driving on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Are we allowed to camp in the wild or can we only go to official camping grounds? If so, how much will it cost?
No, wild camping is not allowed on the island of Kauai. You can only camp in designated locations with secured camping permits. The fee is about $3 per night in many Kauai county parks, though private campgrounds could be a bit more. One advantage of these camping grounds is that you will have complete access to facilities, including showers, bathrooms and picnic tables. Please be aware that if you choose to camp on the county campgrounds, you are only permitted to set up the ground tent.

Prior to our arrival in Kauai, do we have to get a Kauai camping permit?
It’s a better to get your Kauai camping permits prior to your journey. For the majority of private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you may secure your licenses online and also in person in the designated office.
If you opt to camp at a county campsite and set up a ground tent, you can ask for permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
In advance, the charges are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this particular application are cashier’s checks and also money orders. Nevertheless, it is not necessary to book your camping permits prior to your arrival. You could also obtain them at the various permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to obtain the camping permits?
No matter whether you decide to go to a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you decide to stay 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 permit offices on Kauai once you have arrived; in-person permits are given right away.
