Järvamaa Campsites

A list of campsites in Järva county in Estonia. Each site is designated as either a tent site (telkimisala) or a campfire site (lõkkekoht), however in practice there is usually little difference and both are generally suitable for camping with tents.

Kirikumäe
   

We passed over this site along with the nearby Purskava allika and Oostriku joe campfire sites on 15 August 2015. None of these we found suitable for an overnight stay, and we settled at Tamme instead.

This was the best of the three we passed up. It was more secluded than Purskava and Ostriku. The site was similar in size (room for one tent), one picnic table (not covered) and a firepit with cooking grid and benches. However, we visited in recent wet weather, and the road to the campsite was very muddy. It wsa questionable whether our Elmo rental car would make it in and out.

Noku
   

This site is tucked in the woods with some nice nature trails near, including a very famous bog trail on wooden walkways.

Noku has two firepit areas separated by a fair amount of trees, so it is easy to have privacy. One of the sites has a covered shelter as well, suitably for stowing gear, sitting, or sleeping. It's not tall enough for an adult to stand in. This shelter was very nicely made and came in handy when we camped here during heavy rain. This site had an open fire pit but no table when we visited.

The other campsite has a covered fire pit and a picnic table.

Visited Summer 2014.

Oostriku jõe
   

We stopped by this campsite 15 Aug 2015, along with Purskava allika and Kirikumäe campfire sites, which are all located near each other. We didn't end up at any of these sites for an overnight stay, and tented in Tamme instead.

This campsite is small (the official RMK photo includes the full extent of the site) but has a firepit with benches and cooking grids. The covered picnic table is nice. There is room for a tent, however the major shortcoming of this site is that it is right on a road. It's not a busy road, but it seemed large enough that an occasional car would pass.

It was a nice day and we saw a lot of bikers and hikers on the road. We'd recommend this campsite as a nice place for daytime rest, but probably avoided if possible for overnight stays.

Purskava allika
   

We stopped by this campsite 15 Aug 2015. This site is located quite close to Oostriku jõe and Kirikumäe campfire sites. However, we didn't find any of these sites suitable for us, and ended up in Tamme.

This campsite had some unique features. The official RMK photos highlight the nifty natural spring, the firepit with benches and cooking grid, and the covered picnic table. Also there are two small creeks on either side of the campsite.

Unfortunately there was no place for a tent. The official RMK photos includes the extent of the site, and the surrounding areas are two heavily vegetated for a tent. Also, the campsite is situated right off a small road.

Tamme
   

This was a unique little campsite which we enjoyed quite a bit. We ended up here 15 Aug 2015 after having planned on but ultimately deciding against staying at any of Purskava allika, Oostriku jõe and Kirikumäe campfire sites.

This site is very easy to miss. In fact, despite having the location accurately marked on our GPS, we still drove by it three times before finally realizing where to turn. If you're trying to get there, here's how. Take the highway southeast from the town of Järve-Jaani. Go about 3.5 km, and you'll pass the bus stop to your left (north). Just past the bus stop, turn left (north) onto a very small road. In August the grass was so high that it looked more like a a footpath. Follow the road through a left bend and right bend and you'll see the campsite on the right.

Tamme is a very small site with room for a tent (maybe two if you're cozy). There is a covered table, covered woodpile, firepit with cooking grid, and probably the nicest outhouse we've seen at an RMK. Everything was in good repair and the woodshed was completely full. We got the impression very few people manage to find this site, which is good because it was getting late on a Saturday night when we arrived, and the site is too small to share.

There's a pretty field with wildflowers nearby.
