Tou Cheng (頭城) is a seaside town, along the railway line running down the East Coast of Taiwan. It's about one hour away from Taipei if there is no traffic.
We stayed at this campsite: 頭城海水浴場 . It is right by the ocean with some sandy area, but not suitable for swimming. The campsite has a shower block (hot water 6-9pm), tennis court, tent sites with power points, and a bar that opens over the summer. It is very clean and well-kept, with gates that are locked overnight. Cost was $400 per campsite, plus a $30 cleaning fee per person.

|Climbing up and down this tower kept the kids occupied|
|We camped a bit away from the main site, which meant no power but less people|
If you want to venture out, there is LanYang Museum and Wai-Ou Beach to check out.
