Across from Lake Saiko there is a great little campground. The campsites are small but surrounded by trees and very quiet. Lake Saiko is right across the road, making it easily accessible. Additionally, there is camping right on the beach, but when I went this area was crowded. The campground was very clean, with clean bathrooms, and a picnic area with charcoal grills, running water and soap/brushes available for cleaning up. The campground owner was very nice and great with kids. We were able to get firewood free with purchase of the campsite, though this may have been a special promotion. We also rented a boat to take out on the lake for just ¥500/day. There was lots of great fishing. Camping price: ¥3,450/night. There are also cabins available.
