Camping may not be for everyone, but it’s a great way to escape the crowds and be closer to nature, even if for just a day! Imagine trading stories over the campfire and sleeping under the starry night sky. Scroll down our list of amazing campsites in Cameron Highlands!
1. Kem Sg Pauh
The most popular campsite in Cameron Highlands by a mile, Kem Sungai Pauh is usually the first choice that comes to mind when one plans a camping trip to Cameron Highlands. Situated in Kampung Taman Sedia, halfway between Tanah Rata and Brinchang, this scenic campsite is surrounded by tall pine trees and a gentle stream that’s great for a quick dip.
There are ample facilities like clean toilets, bathrooms, prayer rooms, barbecue pits and more to suit the needs of every camper. One gripe we had was that the parking area is rather far away from the campsite. Furthermore, you have to book in advance, sometimes weeks to months ahead, as the campsite is often full, especially during weekends and public holidays.
2. Pine Valley Villa & Camper Site
Located on the fringes of Tanah Rata, the Pine Valley Villa campsite is perfect for beginners, for those who want the camping experience but without leaving modern comforts like working electricity and internet connection behind. There are a few convenience stores nearby should you feel the need to grab a quick snack, as well as ample toilets, bathrooms and barbecue area. The campsite is also spacious enough to accommodate several camper vans in its compound
