Is there a minimum age to rent from you?
We prefer to do business with clients who are twenty-five years and older due to our insurance coverage restrictions. Nevertheless, based on your situation, whenever we can, we always try to be accommodating.
If you are below 25 years, try checking with your insurance provider to find out whether you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can contact us.
Would you be able to accommodate adults who have children?
Indeed! Please keep in mind that with our rooftop campers you would need to climb a small ladder. If this is a concern, we also provide an extra camping tent with every package which you could set up on the ground. This can be much more comfortable for you as well as your little ones.
How many individuals can your camping vehicles accommodate?
Our camper trucks sleep three people maximum, though if there are more in your party, we do have an extra tent, as well. With this, we are able to allow for about five individuals. All of our trucks have 5 seatbelts.
Are you offering surfboards?
Certainly, our company offers surfboards and boogie boards as well as fins upon request for a small fee. Simply let us know up-front if you would like to rent one, so we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we get a travel guide or perhaps a map with the greatest hiking trails & beaches to check out on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to see & camp out on Kauai.
Top Spots For Camping Out On Kauai & Specifics About Camping Permits
Can I visit any beach front to camp?
You can go to any beach, however, you can only set up your camp in official camping sites. Here on Kauai, this is the standard practice. We will give you a list of the greatest places to explore and to camp in. Please remember that driving a vehicle on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” permitted or are we just able to visit official camping grounds? If so, what is the cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted in Kauai. You may only go camping in specified areas with secured camping permits. The associated fee is roughly $3 per night in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, though private camping grounds may be a bit more. One particular advantage of these campsites is that you will have total access to amenities, such as washrooms, showers & picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you decide to go camping on the county campsites, you are only permitted to use the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is definitely a good idea to get your Kauai camping license prior to your trip. For the majority of private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you may get your licenses online and also on-the-spot in the designated office.
If you choose to camp at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you may obtain permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
Up-front, the fees are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Payment methods accepted with this particular application are bank checks and money orders. Nevertheless, you don’t necessarily have to reserve your camping licenses prior to your planned arrival. You can also get them at the various permit offices in Kauai, which is usually easier.
What is the processing time for getting camping permits?
No matter if you choose to go to a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you decide to go to a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it might take quite a while to obtain your permits. You might get your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the various permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will get them right away.
