Pinglin is also nice.
Can you provide some simple directions, from Taipei?
As for other camping spots, I've only experienced two, but they were both nice. "In season," one or both might be busy.
The first is in the little port town of Fugang, about 10km north of Taidong on the east coast. The campground is right on the small, main road, on the beach side, adjacent to the harbor and fish market. Nice access to the ocean. Good showers, fire pits, sites. I believe it is called "Shauleliou" or something similar.
The second is on Green Island. It is on the south end of the island and is the only campground there. Sits on a hillside overlooking the ocean, shaded by a bunch of old trees. Simple, but nice facilities and showers.
I'd be interested in any other spots as well. Considering the approaching summer season, maybe someone can suggest cooler campsites in the terrific mountains of Taiwan.
