Ready to grab your gear and head out on your camping trip? Steady there, partner. You’ve got to choose a destination first! Here are some ideas to get you started.

Korea’s National Parks
Stop by the Korean national parks website for English info on getting around the great outdoors.

Nanji Campground
For those curious about an urban camping experience, there’s Nanji Campground, located in Nanji Park on the banks of the Han River in western Seoul. The mosquitoes are a bit of a problem, but it’s easy to reach and has awesome facilities. If you forget to bring something, you can always rent or buy it here. Driving is the best way to get there, but if you’re set on public transit you should take the subway to World Cup Stadium St. (line 6) and then take bus 8776 from the Homeplus parking lot to the camping ground. W3,750 each. (Korean) 02-304-0061
