Kasagi Campground is located in southern Kyoto prefecture along the Kizu River. The campground has over 30,000 sq. meters of camping space and is easily accessible from Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara. Same day reservations are allowed and the affordable price make it an excellent spot to get way from the city and relax.
The campground offers: Kitchen facilities, western style toilets (please bring your own toilet paper) and garbage sites. Showers can be found at several nearby locations including Kasagi BBQ Company M5 (300 yen per 15 mins) near the campground entrance and Shimagahara Onsen “Yabuccha” around a 20 minute (15.7km) drive from the campsite.
The campground has lots to do besides camping. You can swim in the river, go canoeing, rocking climbing, or fishing. The most popular activity, however, is having a barbeque next to the river. Barbeque sets can be rented but open fires are also allowed. In spring, the campground’s Sakura trees bloom and you can camp under the Sakura blossoms. In summer, the clear night sky is perfect for star gazing.
Kasagiyama National Park is also located nearby. The park includes hiking trails, interesting rock formations, and historic sites and temples of national importance. It is the perfect place to spend the day before camping overnight.
