Ruhijärve campfire sites

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
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!
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.
