Campsites in Taiwan

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Sorry, don't have a number for Heilongtan and Cloud 9 must have a different contact number now as asiababy has found. Both are easy to find however off County Road 42 in Pinglin. Cloud 9 is first, and well marked, and Heilongtan is another 20 minutes down the road, and also well marked. You'll see signs for it the whole way.

Anyone have any advice for getting out to Jiaming Lake and/or Xiangyangshan peak? I am looking to do some camping and climbing, but the sheer amount of red tape around YuShan makes me think it probably won't happen there. I am an experience camper/hiker/etc. and would rather avoid a parking lot with trees and karaoke. Any logistical advice is much appreciated.

Drive direct to the camping site in Xiangyang National Forest, reached by taking highway 20 from Chishang in Taidong County. Shower & toilet blocks, basic facilities. Police station for permits is next door. It's a hikers campsite, rather than families, but karaoke cannot be completely ruled out :D.
(There's no access to that campsite from the west coast, the #20 is badly damaged).

From there you can hike to Jiaming Lake etc. Accom on route (if needed) is in Xiangyang Cabin, Jiaming Lake Shelter, both of which can be pre-booked.

I've got some pics that might help logistically, PM me.

Is it possible to camp anywhere around Manyueyuan? I'm sure it's probably not a good idea to camp in the park itself, but is there anywhere close by where you can camp without anyone really caring?

You can camp within the park. There is an excellent wild campground right at the base of Beichatianshan which is popular and a couple clearings not far into the park which people also use.

Does anyone know if the campground at JICI BEACH south of Hualian is still in operation?

Jici opens for the summer and closes for the winter. The cut-off date is sometime in Oct I think, but best to call & check.

Thanks Nuit. We drove by Jici Beach in a huge tour bus in June, but were unable to stop and ask around. It looked like a fun place to camp with a mellow long boarding spot to surf. I'll check out that number tomorrow.
