Camp Site Wakoto Campground

Wakoto Campground
A campground nestled in forest on the shores of the majestic Lake Kussharo.

Wakoto Campground is located near the neck of the Wakoto Peninsula, which projects out into Lake Kussharo. It is a peaceful camping site surrounded by forest.

Improved and re-opened in 2014, it offers tent sites that fit the various needs of different campers, including a day-use camp area, open tent pitching sites, and permanent tent sites. There are also convenient facilities such as multi-purpose toilets, coin-operated showers, and a coin-operated laundry facility that make Wakoto Campground popular among beginner and extended-stay campers. Some of its most appealing attractions are the free outdoor bath nearby and the walking trail around the Wakoto Peninsula. At the Wakoto Field House which serves as the campground registration desk, you will find panels that introduce Wakoto Peninsula's top wandering spots, plants and animals, and other nature-related information, so it is a great place to stop by before heading out on a walk around the peninsula.

Experience the diversity of Mother Nature around Lake Kussharo and enjoy your camping trip!

Message from the Facility
One place we would like to recommend to campers is the Wakoto Peninsula nature trail just a short walk from the campground. The trail loop is around 2.5 kilometers long and is perfect for enjoying wildflowers and birdwatching. Please get more information at the field house before you set out.
