Public campsites in Malaysia

Campsites listed here are mostly under our national state parks (hutan lipur) or on a peace of public land where we wild camped during our hiking or bicycle touring trips. Some of the campsites are free or charge and some collects a minimal fee, normally not more than RM10 per person. Always check with the local authorities if you’re unsure that it is safe to camp.
