The American style campsite is 1652 tsubo (1.3 acre) and is beautifully landscaped with large grassy area in the middle of the camp and has plenty of trees, flowers and roses. It has 22 camp spots that have a brick patio with a picnic table, and has water, electric and waste hookup. There are 3 camping trailers, 6 sites that are designated for personal RV camping, 7 designated tent spots and a newly built tiny-cabin looking over the small stream. There is a large cabin that has a clubhouse, bathroom, laundry service, a bar/snack area, living quarters on 2nd floor, two Japanese style baths with relaxing jets. There is a small stream in the wooded area below the swimming pool that has fireflies in the spring. Fireflies are rare in the area.
There are plenty of things for children to do. We have a variety of bikes for them to ride around a designated race track. There is a playground with swings and slides. In the arts and crafts room, children can make various projects, play ping pong, and play other games.
There is a small swimming pool that is perfect way to cool off in the summer. It is open Memorial Day Weekend (last weekend in May) thru Labor Day Weekend ( First Monday of Sept)The pool will then become a fishing pond with trout in it from October thru Match.
Each campsite is named after a state in USA. Each campsite will be unique in it’s own way.
Future project includes adding sky tents, tree houses, tiny-cabins, tee-pees and much more.
