Camping in the middle of the magnificent lakeland nature
The largest five-star camping site in the Kuopio region is located in Rauhalahti, south of the city, and it is easy to reach the by-passing motorway. Tourist center Rauhalahti has not only two hundred caravan places, but also a large range of cabins, a tent area, restaurant services, nice beach and a lot of things to do for the whole family. In the summer of 2018, a new animal park will open in the area, which will certainly delight visitors of all ages. Within walking distance, the Spa Hotel Rauhalahti offers additional services – and there is also both bus and water-way connection to the city center in the summer.
Equally, in the beautiful lakeside scenery, Metsäkartano camping site, in Rautavaara north of Kuopio, is a perfect place for a summer break. There are dozens of caravan and tent places in the area. Metsäkartano offers a great deal of activities in the middle of nature. It is one of the most popular nature tourism centers in the lakeland area.
Other nearby camping sites are located in Iisalmi Koljonvirta, Sonkajärvi and Leppävirta Mansikkaharju, within a walking distance in the services and activities of Vesileppis. The nearest camping site from Tahko is located about 14 kilometres away to Varpaisjärvi direction.
