Camp Site Akan Lakeside Campground

Akan Lakeside Campground
Refresh yourself in the natural hot spring footbath!

This campsite is located on the edge of Akanko Onsen Town and is popular among mountain climbers because of its close proximity to Mt. Me-akan and Mt. O-akan, two of the One Hundred Mountains of Japan. The campgrounds are barrier-free and have convenient facilities such as flushing toilets and kitchens. There is also a hot spring footbath on site where you can refresh yourself after a full day of activity. Surrounded by trees, Akan Lakeside Campsite makes a great place to pitch your tent and enjoy a relaxing day!

The camp house next to the campsite offers coin-operated showers and coin-operated laundry services, and sells charcoal and other supplies.

Message from the Facility
Akan Lakeside Campground is right next to Akanko Onsen and is great location for sightseeing and taking rides on the lake’s sightseeing cruise boats. For those interested in Ainu culture, we are also not far from the Lake Akan Ainu Theater Ikor. Our campsite is perfect for relaxing on Lake Akan and enjoying its nature. We look forward to having you stay with use!
