Veski campfire site

Võru County, Karula National Park
Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. The need for firewood in our campsites is very high during the summer, therefore firewood may be out. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
The campfire site is situated on the shore of Lake Ähijärv. The campfire site marks the start of the 4 km long Lake Ähijärv (study) trail and the 36 km long Karula hiking trail.
