Recommendations

Sleep on the slopes of Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes. Cruise the Kona and Kohala coasts and find a quiet spot to take in the sunset. Enjoy the sunrise along the Puna coast and find your way into one of its many tide pools.

Hawaii has some camping areas which do not require permits, as well as a number of State and County campsites with facilities available by permit only. I strongly suggest looking up camping permits in advance of your trip as to avoid being woken up by a park ranger. Please feel free to reach out for recommendations after booking.

This was such a perfect way to experience the Big Island! The roof top tent strategy provided both flexibility and comfort - Scott’s kitchen setup had everything we needed to whip out some awesome dinners and the tent was comfortable, easy to set up, and weather-adaptable. Scott was super accommodating and responsive as well, with seamless coordination of airport pickup/drop off. We circumnavigated the island and then some and while we deviated from our initial plan of beach park camping the campground we stayed at near Volcano and many gorgeous properties on Hipcamp were perfect for the rooftop tent. I would spend another ten days touring this incredible place with Little Red in a heartbeat!

Lil Red was set up perfectly with camping gear and was great for getting around the island to its many amazing camping sites. I am 5'4 and had difficulty managing the roof top tent and Scott helped get me a ground tent to use instead. He was excellent in keeping in touch and answering questions.

We had such an amazing time in Lil' Red! We truly had everything we needed to roam the island! Scott was great - very communicative and helpful! The tent was pretty easy to set up and kept us dry on rainy nights! The car is also a very smooth ride and really good on gas.
[Note to future travelers: Be aware that the car will lock itself, so make sure you've got the key with you when you're not driving!! This happened to us at the beach (it was dark, we were soaking wet in swim suits and had only my husband's phone). I messaged Scott, he called immediately and helped get us a key to get back in (THANK YOU, SCOTT!!!!). But we were lucky to not be in some remote area without reception. Rule No. 1: Always have the key with you!! :)]

Had a great time exploring big island with this rig! It was a great way to see everything Hawaii has to offer, was convenient, and had everything I needed and then some.
