Vähkjärve campfire site

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 on the shores of Lake Vähkjärv (formerly also known as Lake Hansemoisa) is suitable for a pleasant forest holiday by the lake. Here you can catch fish, make a campfire and camp. You can walk on the cycling trail passing the car park and on the roads and paths in the forest.
