When canoeing down the Tokachi River, there is a plethora of wild river-bed camping options along the way. This particular location is where we camped on our two-day overnight Tokachi River canoeing trip, and it was nice – lots of driftwood for a campfire, and some decent sandy spots to pitch a tent. For a good river campsite, look for a nice sandy surface, some trees or brush for shade, a nice big log to sit on, and good access to the water. Check the weather forecast before camping, including areas upstream – the catchment area is large, and the river will rise quickly after sustained rain. The Tokachi River can also rise and fall about 20cm overnight due to dam outflow adjustments, regardless of rainfall.
