Corona, Cha Park, who enjoys camping in a car, is gaining popularity.

However, nature is suffering because of some unscrupulous people who recklessly dump their garbage.

Reporter Jo Jae-geun covered the scene.


Cars and tents are lined up along the riverbank.

A section of over 400 meters is packed with hundreds of vehicles.

Usually, summer vacationers come to this place, but from last year, it is crowded with people who want to enjoy tea and tea, not only on weekends, but also on weekdays.

As a lot of people gather at once, the roadside is full of discarded garbage.

This village alone generates close to 5 tons of garbage in a week.

Many people put it in a regular bag and throw it away secretly.

[Hong Seong-ran/Environmental Watcher: Even now, I pretended to go shopping and just threw it away.

(You say you're going to buy a pay-as-you-go bag?) Yes.

Throw it away and go, like this.]

Some tourists even put excrement in the bathroom of camping vehicles in plastic bags.

[Nam Goong-ju/Environmental Guard: (garbage collection) When a compression truck comes, it explodes when you load it, due to compression… . (Dung?) Yes. The excrement is exploding, and the people who work use it.] It's a

good thing if you throw your garbage in an easy-to-collect place.

Abandoned near riverside bushes, in the middle of gravel fields, and under bridge piers.

There were wine and soda bottles, fire plates and grills, traps for catching fish, used tents and broken chairs, and left behind.

When it rains, it is certain that the river will be polluted.

[Han Soon-hee / Villager: They say that there are no businesses along the river. They buy everything and eat it, so they just throw away the trash, and while they play.] It is

popular because it allows you to leave without contact with other people, but some unscrupulous travelers are making the resort difficult.
