Kampo Enrico: A place near the metro to relax, unwind, and disconnect – Plus Travels

For people who are looking for a break from life in the city, the mountains of Tanay, Rizal offer not only stunning views, but also a chance for visitors to relax and reconnect with nature. The camping grounds of Kampo Enrico, which is also located in the area, offers families, friends, and colleagues the perfect place to get away from the noise of the city and enjoy moments of peace to unwind and reconnect with their loved ones. 

Located just a couple of hours away from Metro Manila, Kampo Enrico is owned by pro volleyball players Kai and Ken Baloaloa and is named after their son, Enrico Zohan. In an episode of Plus Travels on Plus Media, the family shared how they first came up with the idea of owning the camping grounds and how they want people to feel whenever they visit Kampo Enrico.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, while Kai was undergoing intense training with her pro volleyball team, Ken used to ride his motorcycle in Tanay when he first saw the area that would become known as Kampo Enrico. When developing the camping grounds, they first started with a small hut for themselves. Eventually, they decided to share the grounds with other people and make them feel the relaxation and peace that they felt as a family whenever they stayed there. 

Now, Kampo Enrico has also given other people a chance to rest, relax, and unwind at the camping grounds. Visitors will have a chance to enjoy different activities, such as riding ATVs and hiking, as they encourage people to walk around the Tanay area to discover trails, hidden waterfalls, and other beautiful sights. Kai and Ken revealed that there are plans to maximize and expand the camping grounds in the future to give more people a chance to stay.

For those looking for Filipino food while staying at the camping grounds, Kampo Enrico has their very own chef, Daddy Bax, who cooks delicious dishes like Laing, adobong puti, and cheesy bangus. So far, the camping grounds includes a gazebo for gatherings, a hut for families and large groups of people to stay in, and a large tent area where others can set up camp, with tents also available for rent at P300 each. 

At the end of their visit to Kampo Enrico, the Baloaloas want people to say that they felt relaxed at the camping grounds and got away from the bustle of the city to have a couple of days of peace in the same area where they also had a lot of memorable moments and strengthened their connections as a family. 

Kampo Enrico is located at Barangay Tinucan, Tanay, 1980 Rizal. For more information, you can visit them on Facebook or Instagram.
