Needless to say that there are very few camping sites near Pune which are really SAFE & Hygienic. Most of them are not compounded, safe with generator backup, no toilets or unclean toilets. Whereas there is fantastic new destination for overnight Tent Camping near Hinjewadi Pune. You can enjoy Campfire & Music, do fishing using fish hook – the old primitive way. The campsite is touching to backwaters of Kasarsai Dam. Total space is 5 acres fully compounded with generator backup, clean 16 toilets, huge dining hall, fog dance facility and a mini movie theater.
You can reach here is just half an hour drive from Hinjewadi or an hour drive from Pune city. I suggest you to experience camping here once …. for those who are not that used to it also will feel comfortable. You can do barbecue here on your own. Both veg and non-veg food will be available at pre-intimation.
On the other side of dam you can see Sahyadri mountain ranges hidden in Fog .. if you wish you can drive down to the mountains and come back to the campsite … its really untouched site so far .. no crowd at all .. so before it becomes too much commercial I suggest to visit it.
Boating and sports facility also available at additional cost, but it is worth of it, I will say.
Below photo shows camping done on one of the weekend when they hosted around 200 people for overnight camping and fun. So if you are planning a company get-together this will be a fantastic site for you.
Many times family get together and parties do happen here.
Look at the mountain ranges behind, where you can drive down in a car in 15 minutes drive … its totally village area and not developed so far .. so this is early stage where you can feel the nature at its best … later when this site may be famous like Lonavala! so better that you be the first one to visit it …
