Ruhijärve campfire site

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
NB! The 1,6 km-long road leading to the campfire site is under reconstruction and the access to the campfire site by car is complicated.
In summer Lake Ruhijärv is a paradise of water-lilies. The sandy beaches attract people to bathe and enjoy. Our campfire sites are in a place popularly called Tammenina (oak nose), where oak-trees grow in groups like huge bushes, and several stand “nose-to-nose”. The place is perfect for fishermen who go out on the lake in a boat, or for hikers who plan to stay overnight by the lake. However, be patient: there are a lot of insects in this scenic place.
