Huzhou's Anji county recently announced that three campsites in the county will open to the public free of charge.

One of them is situated within Fenghuangshan Park, which is adjacent to several cultural facilities, including the Wu Changshuo Memorial Hall and Anji Library. This campsite is open from 9: 00 am to 6:00 pm every weekend.

Another campsite is situated in Lingxi Park. This campsite is composed of four lawns that span over 60,000 square meters. Admission to the campsite is free, though visitors will still need to pay for food and beverage.

The third location is the Shibi Mountain Huorankailang Campsite, which boasts a 30,000-square-meter lawn - the largest of its kind in Anji. The site can also be used as a venue for outdoor music festivals, salons and weddings. Recreational facilities for go-kart, kayaking and campfire parties are available for campers at the site.

The opening of free campsites is in line with the guideline recently released by the central government to drive the development of camping tourism, which highlighted the construction of public campsites and enhance service quality.

The guideline, jointly issued by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and other 13 departments, also underscores the development of profit-oriented campsites, and encourages tourist sites, resorts, rural tourist destinations and other eligible parks to designate camping spots and provide services.
