Valgesoo bog campfire site

The old campfire site has been liquidated, the new one is under construction. Valgesoo study trail is closed for reconstruction until November 2022.
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.
A nice rest stop for hikers at the edge of Valgesoo bog. The campfire site is on the RMK Peraküla-Aegviidu-Ähijärve hiking route.
