Puhjonranta is a place to just be or be active in all sorts of ways.

The large, leafy grounds have a playground, tennis court, volleyball court and football pitch. Don't forget to pack your running shoes: the centre’s own jogging path winds through the terrain.  You can relax around the camp fire or in a cabin in the woods and there’s so much to explore in the surrounding nature. Let off steam in the lakeside sauna and hop off the jetty to swim in lake Rapojärvi. Puhjonranta has everything you need for a fantastic camp experience.
