One of the favored venues for camping and other outdoor activities in Marilao is Camp Nathaniel in Barangay Sta. Rosa II. A private property owned by Mayor Epifanio V. Guillermo covering four hectares, Camp Nathaniel was named after his late son, Nathaniel R. Guillermo. Mayor Peping started to develop the place into a camping site back in 2005 and was used as the site of the first Marilao District Camporette in February of 2006. It has since then become a favorite destination for camping, scouting, picnics and other outdoor activities. Planted with more than a thousand fruit-bearing trees and a wide variety of vegetable plants, the place appeals to the adventurous spirits and nature lovers as it offers many pleasurable explorations.
