<Anchor> Even when the

days are cold, camping is still popular, and every camping spot on the east coast is frowned upon.

The free public parking lot on the beach is occupied by campers and overflowing with garbage, UBC reporter Shin Hye-ji covered it.


Dozens of vehicles are parked along the coastline where you can see the night sea and the night view at a glance.

They sit in front of the car, grill meat, have a drink, and enjoy fishing.

[Camper: We fight a lot to get a seat in front of the car.

Because I can sit in the back of the car with the trunk open...

.] The

reason many citizens come to this place is that it is free to use and there is a public restroom nearby, so there is no better place to camp than this.

However, this is a public parking lot where camping is not allowed.

As this place is known as a so-called 'chabak spot', it is hard for the locals to find it.

Garbage is plentiful everywhere, and the parking problem is indescribable.

[Seungpil Kim/Neighbors: Leave the trailer and park it in the parking lot for 3 days every 2 days.

Because the entrance is narrow, there is always a traffic jam at the entrance.]

There is also a public parking lot that has become an auto campground with a mixture of campers and trailers.

They spread the tent out as if they don't care about the sign prohibiting camping, but rather complain that there is no space.

[Camper: I park all the cars and don't take them.

I don't even have a place to pitch a tent.

.] Even if the

local government puts up a banner and goes to the guidance, it doesn't work at all.

In other areas suffering from a similar problem, public parking lots are paid for or even have super-precipitation that locks public toilet doors.

It is becoming more important to establish a mature camping culture suitable for the rapidly growing camping population.
