In Korea, interest in camping has been growing every year. In fact, the number of people that go camping in Korea has surpassed 7 million! 😲 Campers are finding new places and new ways to enjoy their time outdoors. Also, the types of camping and ways to enjoy it have been diversifying.
So today, Incheon Airport has prepared a list of recommended camping sites in Korea that offer a special experience. 🏕 We even included places where you can enjoy a comfortable and sentimental camping experience even in cold weather. Get geared up because we’re jumping in right now. 👉🏻
Uncle Kim’s Camping site : Open skies with a panoramic view
The first camping site that offers a sentimental experience is Uncle Kim’s Camping Site located in Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do. It opened in June last year and has become quite popular. The site is divided into the Valley Zone, Sky Zone, and Forest Zone depending on your location. This campsite’s charm is that each zone offers a different vibe.
Out of the three, we recommend the Sky Zone where you can enjoy a view of the sky and mountains. The open view is enough to leave you feeling refreshed. One major perk of this place is that there are fewer bugs near Sanjeongsan Mountain. Also, it is a newly established site meaning there are clean facilities (i.e., restrooms and showers) available.
You can make a reservation for Uncle Kim’s Camping Site through Naver Reservation. For groups, there is also the Premium Sky Zone, large enough for two families to use together. You can even bring your dog with you! For those who want to enjoy clean facilities and panoramic views, look up Uncle Kim’s Camping Site right now!
Anmyeondo School Bus Camping Site : Enjoy a Unique Night Camping in a Spacious School Bus
There is a unique camping site that was picked as the top choice on a Korean camping site recommendation TV broadcast. It’s a place where you can spend a special night with your children. We’re talking about Anmyeondo School Bus Camping Site located on Anmyeondo Island! You’ll immediately spot the special accommodations 🚍 parked on the green grass.
Your camping accommodation is a school bus, the yellow type that you only see in American movies. This is a different camping site where 14 American-style school buses have been converted into camping facilities. The buses also have the power to make you feel like you’ve been transported to America. 😆 The buses are named after US geographical locations, such as Virginia and Georgia, only adding to the experience.
School buses are more spacious than your typical camping car, while still maintaining that feeling of coziness. Large and convenient facilities such as kitchens and restrooms are available. Depending on the number of people in your group, there are beds that can be converted into bunk beds, perfect for families. On top of that, the floors are heated using Korea’s traditional method called “ondol”. 👍🏻
There are other spots to spend quality time beyond just the school bus. There’s a school bus that was transformed into a canteen and cafe where you can read a good book. You can also take a walk through the natural recreational forest nearby. There’s a grass field at the entrance to the camping site where you can play ball. The kids are sure to have a good time. If you want to go on a cozy camping trip with your family, check out Anmyeondo School Bus Camping Site! 👉🏻
Glam Joy Pool-amping : Enjoy an Ocean-View Luxurious Camping Experience
Glamping has been very popular as a relatively new way to enjoy camping, reducing the inconveniences while maintaining the cozy feeling. Recently, glamping has been taken one step further to an even more luxurious style of glamping with personal swimming pools. It’s called “pool-amping”! Out of the various pool-amping places, we recommend Glam Joy Pool-amping, where you can enjoy a pool party with an ocean view!
Glam Joy Pool-amping, located on Ganghwado Island, offers a private camping experience with seven separate houses. Each house is divided into three sections. First, there is a main dome with high-ceilings and a white tone that is reminiscent of a hotel. Next, there is the sub-dome where you can relax while gazing out at the sunset and stars. You’re sure to have a romantic night here.
Lastly, there is the main space made up of glass windows overlooking the sea. There is an indoor heated swimming pool with a bar table for meals. Go for a swim and then enjoy a cocktail while looking out at the sea. Doesn’t that just ooze luxury?! If you want the ultimate luxurious camping experience, visit Glam Joy Camping Site. 😎
