Iron’s Camping Ground

Iron's Camping Ground

Iron’s Camping Ground, or “Cheol-ine Camping-jang” as it is known in Korean, is a hidden gem located right at the entrance of the famous Youmyongsan Natural Recreation Forest in Gapyeong County, Gyeonggi Province. This camping site is nestled right next to the Youmyongsan stream, providing a tranquil setting for campers to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature.

Facilities and Location

The camping site comprises a total of nine sites, including deck and crushed stone sites, all equipped with basic amenities such as electricity, hot water, toilets, showers, cooking facilities, and convenience stores.
