This mountainous area also just outside of Jbeil sits at a higher elevation and offers stellar views. It’s not as green as the forest surrounding Nahr Ibrahim, but you can definitely stargaze at night and enjoy the feeling of waking up to a stunning 360-degree view of Lebanon.
This artificial lake, which is actually a reservoir for the Bekaa Valley, is massive. You can take a kayak with you and paddle out on the lake in between lounging around the campsite and sitting by the fire. You can even go fishing for dinner!
Just outside of the biggest village in Metn, you can find an array of camping spots on top of the mountain. It’s a well-known spot for scouts and nature enthusiasts alike, as the views are stunning and there are many cool hiking trails to check out.
If you prefer more “civilized” amenities with your camping trip, Rmeileh has several beach clubs that allow you to camp on their beaches.
You can even order drinks and food from their restaurants, and they have running water!
#6 Ras el Metn
This pine-laden area of the mountains is located just south of Bzebdine in Baabda District, Mount Lebanon.
It has several privately-owned designated campsites that offer picnic areas, bathrooms, and more.
You can enjoy the views from high atop the mountains, or have a “kumbaya” moment around the fire with your friends and the other guests staying at the facilities.
