Below are Some Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a minimum age to rent from you?
We prefer to work with customers who are twenty-five years and older because of our insurance coverage restrictions. Nevertheless, based upon your situation, whenever possible, we try to be accommodating.
If you are below 25 years, try contacting your insurer 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?
Yes! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb up a small ladder. If this sounds like a problem, we offer an extra tent with each of our packages which you could set up on the ground beside your camper vehicle. This can be more suitable for you as well as your young ones.
What is the max. capacity of your trucks?
Our camper trucks fit 3 people at most, though if there are more within your group, we do offer an extra tenting tent, too. With this, we can easily fit as much as 5 individuals. Each of our trucks has 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Certainly, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers surfboards and boogie boards as well as fins on request for a fee. Just tell us in advance if you would like to rent one, so that we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we get a guide book or perhaps a map with the greatest locations to check out on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the finest spots to see and camp out on Kauai.
Greatest Places For Tenting On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Am I able to go to any beach front for camping?
You can go to any beach, however, you should only set up your camp in designated tenting sites. This is the typical practice here on Kauai. We will supply you with a list of the perfect places to check out and to go tenting. Please note that driving on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” allowed or can we only go to official tenting sites? If so, what is the cost?
No, wild tenting isn’t allowed on the island of Kauai. You can only go tenting in designated sites with secured camping permits. The charge is roughly $3 per night stay in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private camping grounds could be a bit more. The good thing about these camping grounds is that you have total access to facilities, including washrooms, showers & picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you decide to go tenting on the county campsites, you are only permitted to use the ground tent.

Do we need to get Kauai camping permits before we arrive in Kauai?
It is a good idea to obtain your Kauai tenting permits before your trip. For most private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you can secure your permits online and also on-the-spot in the respective office.
If you decide to stay at a county campsite and set up a ground tent, you may obtain permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Tenting Information” web page.
Non-residents need to pay 3 dollars per night up-front. Accepted payment methods with this particular application are money orders & cashier’s checks. Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to reserve your tenting licenses prior to your arrival. You can also obtain them at the various permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
What is the processing time for getting tenting permits?
If you choose to stay at a state or private tenting ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to go to a county campsite, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. You may choose to get your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the various permit offices on the island; in-person you will get them on the spot.
