Lean-to Shelters and Campfire Sites

There are several lean-to shelters in the national park and in the surrounding areas. They provide shelter against rain, and you can eat meals and stay overnight at these lean-to shelters. There are campfire sites and chopped firewood next to each lean-to shelter. You are not allowed to pitch a tent by the Huosilampi lean-to shelter or by the Iikoski rest spot.
