Jõuga lakes campfire site

Ida-Viru County, Alutaguse National Park
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.
