Gwanggyo Lake Park Family Campground in Suwon welcomes camping beginners

It's a campground. There are caravans, tents, and picnic tables.  A family is dining at the caravan.
  

Family camping in nature might be every father’s dream. If the father, who usually stays in and spends time on the sofa during holidays, sets up a tent and cooks some food, his family will surely be impressed. However, when it comes to camping, we usually get stressed about so many things to prepare such as a tent and camping equipment, and longtime driving, so we give up in the end. But the Gwanggyo Lake Park Family Campground is different. 

Two men are dining at the table in front of their tent.

It’s a family-oriented campsite in the middle of the city, and there are Caravans and the picnic tables at each campsite in Auto Campground- so you can just come casually and enjoy a barbecue party. It offers a rental discount to Suwon citizens and families with many children as well.
