Prior to our arrival in Kauai, do we have to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is a good idea to get your Kauai camping permits before your journey. For most private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you can secure your licenses on the internet and also in person in the designated office.
If you decide to stay at a county campground and use a ground tent, you may obtain permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
In advance, the costs are $3 per night for nonresidents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this application are cashier’s checks as well as money orders. However, it is not necessary to reserve your camping permits before your arrival. You may also obtain them at the different permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to get the camping permits?
No matter whether you decide to stay at a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to stay at a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to receive your permits. You might receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the different permit offices on Kauai; in-person you will get them right away.
