Camping and Cabins at Lake Saiko

campground saiko meg martinAcross 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.  For more information, to make a reservation or print a coupon, check their webpage: koyodai.info/index_en.html.  GPS: 35.492088, 138.68533.  Located on the south side of Saiko Lake, on Route 710.  Address: Saiko 2202 Fujikawaguchiko Yamanashi Japan 401-0334.  – Megan Martin, July 2013 – see more of Megan’s photos below.

  1. We stayed in a cabin at Camp Koyodai last night. It was good, clean and nice location, however we were unprepared for how basic it would be. Literally nothing in the cabin! You can rent futons & sheets/blankets, but they were super thin and uncomfortable, so I’d definitely recommend taking your own.
    There are no inside cooking facilities, or fridge. There is a camp ‘kitchen’ outside with water & space to charcoal grill.
    We used the coupon from their website for cheaper boat rental and free firewood.
    There are no toilets in the cabins, there is a shared camp bathroom. Food options in the immediate area are sparce/expensive but a 10-15 min drive will give you more options.
    We would go there again, but we’d be more prepared next time! I hope this will help someone else be prepared the first time.
