Koorküla Valgjärve campfire sites

Valga County, Sakala Recreation Area
The lakeshore with the most beautiful sandy beaches in this area is an ideal place for family holiday. The first campfire site is large enough for several groups of people and the sandy beach also provides an opportunity for swimming. However, watch out when swimming, because the location of the onetime manor is on the bottom of the lake, and according to the local lore, also water-dwellers live there. The second campfire site is suitable for a modest lonely wanderer.
