It’s no wonder that Camp Avenue has become a favorite destination among travelers. Besides its Instagram-worthy attributes, there’s another reason why millennial travelers can’t seem to get enough of this Camping site: its affordability and the theme of Bohemian Dreams!

How to Get There

Camp Avenue is located in Taboc, San Juan, La Union, about a 5 to 6 hour trip by land from Manila. You have two options on how to get there: by car or bus.

By Car:

Getting there is pretty easy with the help of waze. Take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) and then the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEx). From there, take the Pozorrubio Exit to the McArthur Highway. Continue to the bypass road of San Fernando, La Union until you reach San Juan.

By Bus:

If driving isn’t an option for you, there are bus companies that would take you from Manila to La Union in just 5 hours like Dominion, Partas. Viron, Bataan Transit, and there are also buses going to Ilocos that may drop you off at San Juan, La Union. From there, you can take a jeepney or a tricycle to Camp Avenue.
