Camping: A Gateway from the Busy Lifestyle of Seoul

Seoul is known to have many activities and places to visit. However sometimes you feel like you just want to run way from the busy city lifestyle and enjoy your time in nature with your friends or family. Today, I am here to introduce to you some of the best camping sites around Seoul.

Nanji Hangang Park

You do not own a car and you don’t want to travel outside of Seoul for camping? Then you have to visit Nanji Hangang Park. Seoul has many camping facilities right in the middle of the metropolis. Among them, the Nanji Hangang Park on the Han River is the largest, with the capacity to accommodate up to 2,000 people in a total of 165 camping pitches. You can either bring your own tent, or rent one of the campground’s for a small fee. Convenience stores around provide grills, tables, charcoal, meat and other sundries.

Seoul Grand Park Campground

Seoul Grand Park Campground is home to some 150 camping pitches. Camping equipment is available for rental for the convenience of visitors. The pitches are also available for day rental only, perfect for those wanting to barbecue and enjoy the great outdoors without having to spend the night in a tent. There are also plenty of nearby attractions people of all ages can enjoy, including the Seoul Grand zoo, Seoul Land Theme Park and the National Museum of Contemporary Art.

Florance Glamping (Gapyeong)

If you and family or friends are looking for glamping then you check out Florance Glamping a little bit far from Seoul. The site provides spacious tents equipped with all the necessities such as dining utensils, an electric cooking range and, in the colder months, underfloor heating. Each tent has its own private deck and campfire area. Firewood costs extra, but the magical campfire feeling that’ll last through the night is well worth it.
