Dapu Lakeside Park  (中文版:湖濱公園) in Chiayi County, Dapu Township, is the largest lake in Taiwan. It's awesome beauty makes it number one on my list of best places to Camp in Taiwan. There are dozens of places to camp around the lake, both by the water and in the hills over looking the lake. The water level changes from day to day, and season to season, so the parks around the lake change size as well. It's different every time I go.

In the spring and summer, the water level is rising, which means it's very pleasant to be anywhere around the lake, and the ground is firmer, not muddy.  In the fall and winter though, the water levels are falling.  The recently uncovered ground will be muddy, and has a very earthy smell as the plants decompose.  During this season it's better to camp on the wooden platforms at the entrance to the park.  This area also has public bathrooms and showers.

This area is rich in wildlife, and it's not uncommon to see many eagles in the sky at once.  North of the village, there are many waterfalls and hiking trails. 

Camping by the lakeside is convenient and easy.
