Camp Puor Bolinao – a family getaway

We frequently go on family trips, but not camping. But this time, we finally had a chance to do family camping at Camp Puor Bolinao. We stayed overnight on December 11-12, 2021. Camp Puor is located in Bolinao, Pangasinan. Surrounded by coconut trees, the campground has become more famous as the day passes by. Here’s my full review and experience at CampPuor Bolinao, Pangasinan.

If you’re also planning to visit Camp Puor in Bolinao, Pangasinan here’s a quick guide. You’re welcome.

Camp Puor Bolinao – a family getaway

During the holiday break in December, I was looking for a family-friendly place. My family and I usually don’t try sleeping over via a camping style, let alone sleeping in a Kubo hut on a short holiday. My sister Gem once mentioned Camp Puor Bolinao to me while chatting. 

Since we all loved Bolinao and its white beach, which was a kinda of neighbor of Camp Puor, we thought it could be an option.

Hence, I looked it up online. I found their Facebook account and browsed the photos. 

The photos looked inviting to me. Plenty of guests had their pictures taken with the background of the green river. And some were doing a photo shoot. Others were just happy and contented with a day trip. 

But for me, most importantly, it is friendly. Just the sight of loads of tall coconut trees surrounding the campground seduced the idea in our heads. 

And I thought my mother especially would love it. Moreover, I love anything close to nature. 

Moreover, my sister said she knew several acquaintances who had been there, and they liked it. 

And by reading her message telling me about the place, I could feel her excitement already. I got excited, too. I got more thrilled for them. 

As a result, we decided to let all the family members for this planned family camping at Camp Puor know.

Travel requirements and restrictions in Bolinao

Bolinao is part of Pangasinan.
During this travel time, gathering each member was challenging. This was still Corona time, and rules and regulations regarding camping or traveling were an extra hassle. Moreso, constantly changing.
Also, most establishments would require a negative PCR rapid test or a vaccine card. I know. These things didn’t exist before!

How to make a reservation at Camp Puor Bolinao

I contacted them on messenger. 

It took a little while before they replied to my inquiry. I liked that! Instant reply, aye! I told them I would like to make a reservation for twelve (12) people. Yes, it’s a Filipino family. A large number of family members. Besides, it’s a mini-reunion this time. 

Remember, it’s December. It’s the time of the year when all the members of the Filipino family get together! 

The staff replied that she would reserve these two (2) Kubo huts.

As I’ve already read their guidelines regarding the guests’ reservation, I was aware before sending the inquiry. 

Even so, the staff told me that in each Kubo hut, a maximum of six (6) people could sleep in. Two (2) children are allowed. My two (2) nieces who were left to spend the overnight camping at Camp Puor were thirteen (13) and ten (10). They were still considered kids. 

My mother, Sister Gem, her son, my sister Amber, and two (2) nieces I’ve mentioned above stayed in one Kubot hut. My brother, his wife, and two (2) year old daughter, and our driver remained in the other accommodation. 

We expected that one of my other nephews and cousin Lani, who looks after him, would also stay. But not.

Family camping at Camp Puor in conclusion

In conclusion, I can say that our family camping at Camp Puor Bolinao was fun, unique, and successful. And most of all, unforgettable. Camp Puor was a perfect place for family getaways and camping and to spend time in nature. 

We loved the experience at the campground. The surroundings were very calm and peaceful. It’s far from the chaos of the city. The Kubo hut was very traditional that made us feel nostalgic. It made us remember the times when our house was Kubot hut style. Those days were precious. 

Moreover, we got more than what we paid for. You know what we mean? The camping price was reasonable. For ten (10) people, we have only spent less than at least PHP 3,000.00. Super reasonable price, don’t you agree?

Besides the preparing and sharing of food, the grilling and bonfire at night were the best parts. (Well, because we dearly love anything cooked with charcoal).

Above everything else, our family could experience camping, something we haven’t had done for a long time. This escape also made our family become closer together. And we have had the rare opportunity to catch up. We’ll be back next time!

Have fun!
