Tagaytay is one of the coolest cities in the Philippines, second only to Baguio City. With its cool air and the perfect view of the Taal Lake, it’s no wonder a lot of tourists come to visit the place. Throughout the years, a lot of high rise buildings and grand hotels have been built. With the influx of travelers, the city’s accommodation prices have increased. Being a camping enthusiast, I scoured the internet for a list of places that allow camping. To camp is not only a fun activity but it is also cheaper than most accommodations.
So without further ado, here is a list of Tagaytay campsites that’s worth checking out.

Located just beside Picnic Grove, Nature Discovery Camp is a downhill slope area with fences. With a view of the mountains on the left and the Taal Lake on the right, the place is perfect for an overnight camping trip. They also have an available car park in the area.
