Raigastvere observation tower

It is prohibited to go from the tower to the lake (private land).
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.
From the observation tower on the Raigastvere drumlin a spectacular view opens on the Vooremaa area with its diverse landscape.
