Camping at Area D is more accessible from Marine Parade. The location is strategically centred near to food eateries, cycling park, 24 hour convenience store, bicycle rental shop and there are 3 toilets in this area alone- with outdoor showers are available. For those who prefer a more quiet and isolated area away from the crowd, Area G will be more suitable for you- best if you have your own transport.

What others are saying about West Coast park- reviews.
Yes! A camping park for the West side of Singapore. East Coast Park and Pasir Ris Park are located in the East of Singapore and may seemed too far for some. Although you may not get the breezy waves of nature and the sandy beaches, but come on down and get wild with the 7 massive play areas, from a Ninja Obstacles Course, Flying Fox, Spiderweb maze and many more. There is something for everyone.
Campings are allowed in Area 1 and 3. For those who wants easy access to the main attractions, Area 3 is a good place to pitch your tent. There is a convenience store nearby and if you are hungry at night, Mcdonald's would be available 24 hours in the park itself. If you have a transport, check out other food options along West Coast. Book your camping permit here.
4. Pulau Ubin

Just a 10 minute bumpy bumboat ride away from Changi Point Ferry Terminal to Ubin Jetty ($2 per trip), camping at Pulau Ubin is a quick getaway from the bustling Singapore. It is perfect for anyone who just wants to unwire themselves and immersed in a rustic kampung lifestyle.
