Experience the Rustic Charm of Damyang Nurungji Camping Site

Scorched Rice Camping Ground

Scorched Rice Camping Ground

Just like the earthy appeal of scorched rice, or ‘Nurungji’ as it’s known in Korean, the Nurungji Camping Ground located in the town of Damyang, offers a homely and welcoming atmosphere for all campers. Nestled in the Chuwolsan Road of Yongmyeon, this site brings out your nostalgic memories of playing in your hometown.

Camping Experience

During winters, the camping ground sees many overnight campers, while in summer, it turns into a lively place with a seasonal restaurant serving delicious chicken soup. The campers love to take a dip in the stream just in front of the camping ground. If you drive about 5 minutes past the entrance of Chuwolsan, you will see a signboard for the camping ground, making it a great spot to also tour Chuwolsan.

Despite its rustic name, the Nurungji Camping Ground features very neat facilities. The bathroom and shower facilities are located together, built with cypress walls, providing a clean and eco-friendly atmosphere. The hot water supply is also excellent.
