Campsite Guide – Kiyotsukawa Fresh Park(Imokawa Otsu, Tokamachi City)-



Focusing on camps that have become increasingly popular in recent years, we are doing our best to publicize the campgrounds that are open in the Joetsu area (Joetsu City, Myoko City, Itoigawa City).  Not only detailed information on each campground, but also spots recommended by the editorial department will be posted.  It’s good to have fun with your family, or to enjoy your time as a solo camper.  Why don’t you go out to play in the great outdoors?

【Open April 27-November 24】The attractive feature of this facility is its full range of facilities, including river play, disc golf, and a footbath with natural hot spring water!

From the Shiozawa-Ishiuchi IC on the Kanetsu Expressway, a 30-minute drive on Route 353 toward Tokamachi will take you to Kiyotsukawa Fresh Park, located on the banks of the Kiyotsu River, a first-class river.

On holidays, the park is crowded with people enjoying camping and playing in the river. With a grassy area at the camp site, a river play zone, and a disc golf course, you and your family or friends will have a full day of fun.

Advance reservations are required to use camp sites; BBQ-ready areas are available free of charge and do not require reservations.

“Kawapperi no Ashiyu” using hot spring water from “Yukura Tsumari” adjacent to the park.

After enjoying camping and BBQ, we recommend that you take a refreshing dip in the adjacent hot spring facilities to work up a sweat.  Campers will receive a discount coupon for half-price bathing at the adjacent hot spring facility “Yukura Tsumari” and the hot spring facility “Mion Nakasato” located about 5 minutes by car from the campground.

There is also a footbath with a roof inside the campground that uses hot spring water from the Yurakatsumari hot spring. It is nice to take a relaxing dip in the footbath while listening to the murmuring of the river.

And at night ……

Trees in the park will be lit up except during snow removal season. You can enjoy a fantastic atmosphere at the end of the day.
