A well-planned holiday with a detailed itinerary will always be fun, but for those who don’t have the luxury of time and budget, short weekend trips are the way to go. There are plenty of beautiful stays with the best views, beach resorts, and condos, but if you’re looking for a little adventure, camping is a healing activity to try. From mountains to beaches, here are some campsites near the metro for your weekend plans this 2023:


Lake Mapanuepe

Location: San Marcelino, Zambales

Dubbed the “New Zealand of the Philippines”, Lake Mapanuepe is a tranquil setting that’s perfect for going off-grid for a night or two. There are no resorts or stays by the lake, so you either drive or go on a boat ride and pitch a tent. Make sure to bring camping gear, especially lights, because there’s no electricity here too. The lake is also ideal for car camping.


Camp Morri

Location: Veterans Kaysakat Road, Antipolo, Rizal

Want to go riverside camping? Head to Camp Morri for a day trip or an overnight camping experience. Their day tour starts at P200 per head for adults with an additional P100 for tent pitching. If you plan on going car camping, you only need to pay an extra P200 per car. Camping gear may be rented as well, such as folding chairs, tables, and sunshade tents. When you don’t feel like sharing the campsite with others or plan on holding a group outing, you can rent it exclusively for P15,000 a night.
