QUIET TIME STRICTLY ENFORCED! 9PM TO 8AM
Smoking in designated area only.
Booking is through AirBnB ONLY! Do not ask for exceptions. This is or our protection and yours.
This is a very, "local" style neighborhood. Everyone waves and smiles and neighbors all look out for one another. We have many small children that play in the street - so please drive slowly and carefully down our street. The 9pm quiet time is in respect for the fact that we are in a working class neighborhood - we all get up pretty early. We appreciate your cooperation in this. Trust me, the neighbors will remind you if you're driving fast or are loud late at night. The first Saturday of each month is the First Saturday celebration in Kapaa Town - with live bands, awesome food and a great art walk.
We are very near the Kauai bus system and the bike path is minutes away. Easy access to the highway and the bypass make getting around the island easy from here. Shopping and dining are within close walking distance. All that being said, we highly recommend renting a car to get the most out of being on Kauai.
Other Things to Note
Tax included! Free Parking! Camp Kitchen available, no food provided. Shopping, laundry and dining are within very close walking distance.

We really enjoyed staying with Sandi and Bruce, and the place definitely lived up to our expectations.
They were very welcoming, the tent was nice and big and the wifi reaches all the way to the tent. There's lamps in the portaloo and in the shower, and the water is nice and warm.
This can be an ok place to stay for a couple nights if you're on a budget, but I wouldn't recommend staying here for many nights, especially if you like to use the kitchen. It is a short walk into Kapaa, which isn't the nicest place, but there are eat/drink options there. (Recommend travelling out of Kapaa!) They have good tents here, with light sleep sacks and an extra blanket (I was warm enough with what they provided). Most of their tents look like they'd stay dry in a rain event, but some had skimpy rain flys. Bring your own thermarest or sleeping pad, the 1/2" piece of light foam they provide is not enough (I wouldn't even call it a sleeping pad). Also, I wasn't provided with a pillow, so be prepared.
The outdoor shower was awesome and warm, and the toilet was a porta pottie which is cleaned 1x/week, frequent enough to not get very gross.
The owners/hosts are very concerned with neighbor relations. We are not loud people at all, but were told to be quiet a few times. They were having problems with the neighbors and the State when we were there about whether camping here is legal, hopefully they are straightening that out, but nevertheless, the vibe with Bruce and Sandy became less than welcoming while we were there.
The kitchen is located in their garage, and we had the feeling we were in their way or bothering them by being in there (we like to prepare our own breakfasts to save money).
Like I said, this could be an ok crash spot for a couple nights, but I don't recommend staying longer or hanging out much on site while you're in town. I personally will not be returning.
Please make sure to read all of our reviews - this one is not the norm. That being said, we were having issues with neighbors because some guests did not adhere to the clearly outlined quiet hours. The legality of our running a campground on our property was never in question. We communicate very clearly that we are in a local neighborhood. Kapaa Town is a funky old town and has that vibe. If you are looking for a resort experience, I would stick to the north or south shores of Kauai.
Bruce and Sandi were great we always felt like we were at home.
The accommodations were laid out nicely and always clean ,and the yard was like a park with coconut trees a kayak stream to the ocean and great mountain views.
My son and I stayed a few nights at the state and county camp sites
and came back to Bruce's park for our last night ,much cleaner , private and quite if you like to sleep before 2 am and later that 5 am!!
Thanks again !!

Amazing place to stay right in Kapaa but far enough away so that you get a quiet night's sleep. I'm a light sleeper so appreicated that this neighborhood has no traffic and everyone seems to go to bed early as there is no noise. Facilities are great! Cooking, hot showers and wifi what else could you possibly want? You can walk downtown if you need essentials, bikes can be borrowed from the owners and lovely place to camp as there are gorgeous palm trees that lull you to sleep at night under the star filled sky. Five stars!
Sandi's husband greeted me when I arrived and showed me around the premises. The camp site is in their large yard and next to a salt water stream. There was a nice view of the mountains in the distance. It was also in a residential neighborhood, which felt a little uncomfortable at times, when you could heard the neighbors talking on their lanai.
Overall, it was a fine experience, especially if you enjoy camping/glamping. The campground had everything needed...a shower, sink, kitchen area, and toilet. It was close to a starbucks and grocery store. Beaches and historic Kapa'a was in walking/biking distance.
Kapa'a has lots of free roaming chickens and roosters. Be prepared to be on their sleeping schedule, if you are a light sleeper.
Please, please, please, review the pictures of our accommodations and our profile. We do note that we are in a residential neighborhood and that we are early to bed and early to rise. Both of these conditions add to the benefits of our campground, i.e. up early for daytime excursions and in town to be close to shopping and dining. We, most definitely, are not a resort. This is our home and our neighborhood. All of Hawaii is "open air" and Kauai certainly is, we are all one big happy Ohana (family).
We LOVED this Island and our stay with Sandy. The place is exactly as described, but they forgot to mention how lovely and kind they are themselves...
The campground offers everything you need to spend the night and explore the Island. In the neighbourhood there are a lot of friendly locals and about 5/10 min walking, youre at a small village with shops and rentals for bikes etc. We also hired a bike, which is handy and there is a nice road next to the ocean.
Sandy and her husband are very relaxed, active and kind. They even took us for a kano-ride on the river next to the campingside.
No worries about muskito's, and staying on a campground is very fun, really in the nature and sleeping under the stars.
we would recommend this place for sure, BUT... Also recommend to make sure you'll have enough days to check this beautifull Island.
