JECHEON, Jun. 7 (Korea Bizwire)With warmer temperatures hitting the nation earlier than normal, camping trips in the wild are gaining popularity with those trying to beat the heat.

One prime example of such a site is the campground at Bakdaljae Natural Forest situated in Jecheon, North Chungcheong Province, where beautiful pine trees blend in nicely with unique rocks shaped by mother nature.

Pine trees rooted in a cliff near the campground are reminiscent of landscape portraits by many of Korea’s master artists of hundreds of years past.

Visitors to the camping area say fresh air filtered by the thick forest is enough to heal the minds and bodies of everyone who visits the area.

The campground is also home to 10 lodging facilities, 37 camp sites, and 200 parking spaces for vehicles.

The fully equipped camping zone at Jecheon’s Hansu-myeon is another hot spot for campers.

With tents, cooking utensils and bedding readily available on site, the venue has become one of the top choices for campers who prefer to travel without having to take everything with them.

In addition, easy access to the creeks nearby make Jecheon a perfect place for family gatherings.

Other places in Jecheon like Songgye, Deokju and Cheongpungho Lake are also camping favorites for those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Visits to the waterfall at Darian Valley add to the ambience for any visitor. Jecheon’s camping area also boasts a foot volleyball court, concert venue, and a commissary for convenience.
