The campground on the grounds of Michinoku Coastal Trail Natori Trail Center is finished and ready for campers.

Hikers on the Michinoku Coastal Trail as well as anyone who wants to come and enjoy camping can use this campground. It has a tent camping area as well as an auto campsite area where you can park your vehicle and camp.

This campground is in a great, convenient location near shopping and recreation options including Yuriage Morning Market, Kawamachi Terrace Yuriage and Natori City Cycle Sports Center. The campground is planned to be fully open in April 2022. Until the end of March 2022, guests can enjoy a special pre-open price as we get input from guests and work to provide the best experience we can.

Reservations can be made for up to three months in advance.
(For example, if today is October 22nd, you will be able to make reservations for dates up to January 21st. If today is November 22nd, reservations can be made for dates up to February 21st.) Because we need to prepare for campers, reservations need to be at least two days in advance. (We cannot take reservations on the day right before or day of your planned stay.)

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our campground!

You can make your reservation on the following website.
