Facility landscape

Campground full of nature surrounded by pristine forests of Japanese beach and Oak trees

Located at the end of Matsukawa Onsen Village, the Matsukawa Camp Ground is surrounded by pristine forests of Japanese beach and Oak trees. There are about 70 tent sites in addition to those simple but helpful facilities such as flush toilets and kitchens. It is an advantage that Matsukawa Onsen Village is within the walking distance from there. Enjoy camping comfortably by washing away the sweat in the hot spring after you enjoyed climbing and other outdoor activities.

Thanks to its high altitude, the air is cool and the starry sky also is beautiful in summer. The fact of being at deep in forests is surely an attraction of this camping ground. The reception desk is at Kyoun-so in Matsukawa Village.
