Jõuga lakes campfire site

During the time of a risk of a forest fire in Estonia: • You can make fire only in designated places. • You can make fire only with a wind up to 5 m/s. • Watch out your fire!
The campfire sites are on the bank of Lake Pesujärv. It is a popular swimming place. There is a boardwalk leading to the lakeside and a convenient pier for taking a dip. The Jõuga lake system comprises four lakes that emerged as a result of the melting of loose ice: Lake Jõuga Pesujärv, Lake Jõuga Linajärv, Lake Jõuga Liivjärv and Lake Armise. Several rare plant and animal species can be found in the lakes, e.g. the common water frog.
