Scout Guesthouse and Campground, Cibubur

With a distance of only 14 km from Cawang UKI, and accessible via Jagorawi Toll Road, Bumi Perkemahan and Graha Wisata Pramuka Cibubur (Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground) gives a very good alternative for the citizens of the Greater Jakarta who want to enjoy the outdoors by sleeping in the tents and feel the warmth of a campfire in cold nights.

After leaving Cibubur exit toll gate for about 500 meters away, the vehicle that we rode in turned to the left. A moment later we already saw ticket counter to enter the Bumi Perkemahan and Graha Wisata Pramuka Cibubur, better known by locals with an acronym of Buperta Cibubur. A few meters after passing through the Buperta gate, we passed marketing office of the facility on the right side of the road. It's the place where visitors can meet Buperta officials if they want to reserve a place to camp, both for individuals or large groups. Visitors can also ask anything related to facilities available to visitors.

The area of Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground is really vast, that it could take half a day to see at a glance all of the existing facilities, and certainly much longer if you want to enjoy them one by one. It’s understandable as, for the area which previously was a rubber plantation and turned into variety of shady trees, it reaches 210 ha.

Football field at the Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground that located across the marketing office with the length of more than 200 meters. The open and spacious field can also be used for other purposes as long as not being used by others, and in accordance with rules set by the manager. At least jogging can be done here.

In addition to the very spacious camping spots and the relatively large pool, there are also a mosque, temple, and church, which located all adjacently close in one area, about 750 meters away to the north from the end of the football field. There are also chapel and monastery building in the vicinity. To the northwest within the Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground complex there is Saka Bhayangkara Traffic Park which covers an area of 4800 m2, where I saw a group of kindergarten children accompanied by their teachers were learning traffic signs and road markings in actual sizes.

Area of the campground is quite large, it could take half a day to see at at glance all the locations, and certainly much longer if you want to enjoy them all. Understandably that the area was previously a rubber plantation and as of now there are lots of variety of trees that shaded the 210 ha vast area.

Rows of simple food stalls that form a horseshoe shape is located near the church, or in the north side of the mosque. Many peeled grass that created red soil, rows of stalls without style, made me reluctant to stop by. If only the designs were more interesting, with the same costs, it could give much different results.

However, Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground provides almost everything that people needs to get close to nature, friends and family. In this place there are also soutbound, paintball, and mountaineering. Area of Kampung Maen is located at the northern end of the compound, and on the East side there are Arboretum Forest, fishing site, and Lake Situ Baru.

In addition to the camp site with a wide selection of sizes, Cibubur Scout Guesthouse and Campground also provides standard accommodation in the form of AC and Non AC rooms, with a capacity of 230 beds. Rather plenty. There was also a guest house located within the area of the camp, which provides rooms with or without AC.
