Hi! My family and I want to go on a camping trip somewhere safe during the summer. I heard there are some sites in Laguna. Could you give me some advice where to go? Number 1 criteria is safety.
I am not sure if the Jamboree site in Mt. Makiling is still open. You may want to consider it.
thanks. Would there be any establishment I can call? or is this with the Boys Scouts of the Philippines?
try lake caliraya in cavinti/lumban laguna. there's the Surf Kamp, a little bit upscale campsite (of course for windsurfers). just about a few meters away is a reasonably-priced (i am sorry, i forgot the name)campsite that has complete facilities. T&B, kayaks for rent, tents for rent. The place is a guarded, being a commercial one. It is covered by thick eucalyptus trees and is by the lake. A lot of overnight campers on weekends. This is very near the Japanese Garden and just before Surf Kamp (if you have been to Caliraya). I guess they charge P60 per head. Actually, my family have been planning to camp out there sometime this summer. will post some pictures on my page this week.
thanks a lot. I've been wanting to have information on Caliraya's attractions. I've been there a couple of times but to a hotel only for our conference. I'll check it out. do you think they have a website? Would you know of campsites in antipolo or tanay maybe?
have heard of a Paenan Camping Grounds in antipolo but never been to the place.
worth considering also near Manila is Tagaytay Picnic Grove (not much privacy here though) and Taal Lake Yatch Club grounds in Talisay at the lake's coast.
Isn't picnic grove just a site for picnics?
