Samnak Ecological Park Camping Ground
As the first campsite for vehicle camping in Busan, the Samnak Ecological Park Camping Ground located on the banks of the Nakdonggang River boasts some 60 RV pitches, 50 tent pitches, restrooms, shower facilities and communal kitchens.
Campers can fully immerse themselves in nature, and enjoy all the park has to offer, including a marsh, bird feeding site, wildflower field and biking path. The park is particularly popular among bird-watchers in winter, when migratory birds settle here to pass the cooler months.
Noeul Park Campground
Escape the hustle and bustle of Seoul without escaping at all at Noeul Park Campground near World Cup Stadium. The park’s pasture is covered with eulalias and wild flowers that abound with butterflies, crickets and other wildlife. The former landfill site boasts more than 20 lookouts that offer breathtaking views of Seoul, including the N Seoul Tower, Bukhansan Mountain, and the Han River.
The park is also home to more than 100 all-inclusive camp sites, each equipped with its own grill and table. Bring your own food and drinks, but enjoy a memorable time with your friends, right in the center of Korea’s capital city.
The small island of Muuido just off the coast of Incheon is just as enjoyable as the country’s better-known coastal destinations and is the perfect place to waste away a lazy spring or summer weekend. Boasting two beaches, a number of great seafood restaurants, trekking trails and even a zip line, Muuido is a great spot for the active camper. Hanaggae Beach offers tent camping with basic facilities for 10,000 won per tent (about $9 USD). Or, visitors can opt to stay in one of the bare-bones beach huts for around 35,000 won (about $26 USD).
Families looking to get their glamping on should head to Florance Glamping in Gapyeong. Although slightly off the beaten path, 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 will last through the night is well worth it. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
Seoul Grand Park Campground
Situated among the crystal clear streams and verdant forest of Cheonggyesan Mountain, Seoul Grand Park Campground is home to some 150 camping pitches.

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.
