雨に当たったが、水はけも良く、設営スペースも広く、使いやすかった。駐車場から設営スペースまでが遠いため、リヤカーの貸出があるが、利用者数に比して台数が少なく、待ち時間があったため☆4とさせていただきます。

開放感満点 十勝を感じる良いキャンプ場 トイレは広大なサイトの東側に1ヶ所だけなのでまごまごしていると漏らしちゃいます

初夏から秋口まで、静かな広々とした環境のキャンプ場です。8月の初旬に開催される熱気球のバルーンフェスティバルは、キャンプ場の直ぐ隣で行われます。全国からバルーンチームが集まり、間近で熱気球の迫力を見ることができます。

2005年に訪れた時は無料でしたが、2008年に訪れたら有料(500円)になっていました。
以前は奥の方に循環式のトイレがあり、あまりきれいではありませんでしたが、2016年に訪れたところ、撤去されていました。

テント何百張り張れるんだろう、というくらい広大なキャンプ場なので、ハイシーズンでも混雑しません(手前の駐車場側はそれなりに混みますが)。街に近く、町営の風呂やコンビニ等アクセスしやすいです。

例外ですが、2011年に訪れた時、どこかの会社の慰安旅行なのか、観光バス3台で乗り付けた団体が、朝までどんちゃん騒ぎをしたため、一睡もできなかったことがあります。
