Lake Umbjärv 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 lakeside campfire site, located in a beautiful pine forest south of Elva, is suitable for a shorter stop and a swim, as well as a longer stop - camping. Numerous forest roads and trails are also suitable for just fun walks
