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. nanjicamping.co.kr (Korean) 02-304-0061
There are plenty of other camping spots out there, most of which welcome traditional campers as well as RVs. Get a Korean to help you with details on pricing and location.
