Sarah is our latest acquisition and by far our most luxurious. A 1999 T5 Eurovan was the last imported model from Germany. Introduced in 1993, the VW™ Eurovan Camper replaced the lower powered rear-engine, rear-drive Vanagon with a new body style, and a 109HP, 2.5-liter 5-cylinder front engine front wheel drive model. There are two models of EuroVan. The Full Camper with 12gallon fresh water, sink, and two burner propane stove. Cabinets for pot and pans, dishes, sheets and blankets as well as two deep cycle batteries to keep the fridge cold. The Weekender model has a small fridge and a bed. Your adventure on Kauai will be more comfortable in a Full Camper. All three of our vans are Full Campers. A fuel-injected V-6, Anti-lock brakes, and nimble steering make driving fun and care-free. With built-in blinds, an Alpine stereo and a real closet, you'll feel right at home. In continuing to upgrade Sarah, we chose superior outside camp chairs, upgraded linens, and towels as well a huge awning to make indoor/outdoor living clean and dry.
Your camper includes 2 beds and will accommodate 4 people. Stocked with everything you need, all you have to do is bring your clothes and shop for your favorite camping grinds.

You should have your 1st-night location nailed down before you arrive. Some of our favorite campsites start with Lydgate Park. There is a lot of wave action here but that adds to the energy.` You can walk 3 miles in one direction on pristine sand and barley see a sole.
Located on the North shore, is Anini Beach Park. A very far out reef makes the water calm and waveless almost all the time. Good shell collecting, snorkeling, and kiteboarding. There are two state campgrounds that are open. One is Kokie which is up in the cold Waimea canyon area you can get your permit online. Another is a hike in only wilderness Park in Haena and the third is Polihale State Park. We don't allow the vans to go there the roads are too treacherous. There are two private campgrounds, one called Kumu which is on the east side of the island on the beach it can be reserved online then there's the YMCA campground on the North shore that has to be reserved in person. The county campgrounds, there are seven of which three are closed. Permits are sold at the county building and in small towns around the island. Personally I would go for Lydgate campground which is near the town of Kapaa or the Kumu privately owned campground in Anahola. If your plane is arriving here by 2 p.m. you will have time after the Camper orientation to go buy a permit.
