ABOUT THE CAMPSITE

The American style campsite is 1652 tsubo (1.3 acre) and is beautifully landscaped with large grassy area in the middle of the camp and has plenty of trees, flowers and roses. It has 22 camp spots that have a brick patio with a picnic table, and has water, electric and waste hookup. There are 3 camping trailers and 1 camper, 6 designated tent spots and one deck with tent looking over the small creek. There is a log cabin that has a clubhouse, bathroom, laundry service, a bar/snack area, living quarters on 2nd floor, sauna and two Japanese style baths with relaxing jets. Next to the clubhouse there is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Behind the cabin is a workshop with professional wood working tools to create and remodel. There is also a double trailer that is used as the office and house. There is a small creek in a wooded area below the swimming pool that has fireflies in the spring. Fireflies are rare in the area.

Camp Captel is located in Nasu in Tochigi Prefecture. It is 3 hours by toll from Camp Zama/Atsugi, 2.5 hours from Yokota/Tokyo and 3.5 hours from Yokosuka. Tolls are about ¥5000 for cars equiped with ETC and about ¥6000 for regular tolls. Free road takes about 5 hours from Camp Zama. To save money and time, you can take toll road to Goka interchange (Google Map) and then route 4 all the way to Nasu. Route 4 is a 2-3 lane highway with few lights. Cost drops considerly. 

There are tons of things to see and do in Nasu. Amusement parks, zoo, safari park, monkey park, museums, and so much more.

OUR PLAN

Traditional Japanese campsites charge for the campsite along with per tent, per vehicle and per person. We would continue this for local Japanese but will also offer a Military discounts. We would charge a flat rate for Military (US and Japanese) for up to 4 people with additional cost per person for a weekend campout. Check-in would be Friday night after 2000 and check-out would be 1800 on Sunday or Monday if it’s a holiday for a weekend campout.

The pool presently opens late July thru end of August. We would open it on Memorial Day weekend and close on Labor Day weekend. There will be music, balls, volleyball, basketball and many other fun things to do.

We plan to have a Snack Shack by the pool which would be open daily 0800-1700 sell various items such as snacks, sodas, beer, sun lotion.

Saturday and Sunday mornings we will offer breakfast in the kitchen. We will make various menus such as Country breakfast in a Dutch oven.

Sundays will offer BBQ lunches in the kitchen. Every Sunday will have a different theme such as Ribs, chicken, Dutch oven, etc.

Each campsite is presently named after a US State. We will put the state license plate at the entrance along with the state flag and an information sheet on state bird, trees, stats, etc. Along with that, each trailer, cabin and tree house will have a theme of that state. For example, Alaska would have a rugged outdoor theme while Hawaii has a “Aloha” beach feeling.

“Kids Camp Week” During certain times of year, campsite is only available for families. We will provide special events for the kids.

We know many people don’t have camping equipment. So we will rent out package deal. Set of tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bags, cooking supplies and all other supplies needed for camping.

We will pick up customers at the train station instead of having them take a taxi. Customers would have to reserve first and let us know when they are coming in.

Enjoying Camp Moose without a car?

Just curious if there is any way to spend time at Camp Moose (and the surrounding attractions) if one doesn't have a car.  Can we get there by public transportation?  And, I imagine that once there, we'd need to go to the local supermarket to buy food to cook.  Just wondering if there is any way around that.

Hello Tara

Where are you coming from? If you take the train, we can pick you up at the local train station. Depending on how busy the day is, we can take you to the store. Or you can take a taxi. Please send me an e-mail and we can talk more. moosecr@enjoyingjapan.com
