Caravan camping

Leirintäalue sijaitsee Valkeakosken Sääksmäellä, Ritvalan kylässä. Hakalanrannassa on sähköistettyjä vaunupaikkoja noin 50 kpl. Isäntäpäivystys palvelee kesäkaudella (14.5.–10.9.2023) kaikkina päivinä ja talvikaudella (11.9.2023–12.5.2024) vain viikonloppuisin.

Alueen ranta on erittäin lapsiystävällistä matalaa hiekkarantaa ja alueen vieressä on myös kunnan yleinen uimaranta. Matkailijoiden käyttöön on tarjolla SUP-lautoja ja soutuveneitä. Veneilemään lähtevät saavat isännältä lainaksi pelastusliivejä.

During winter season around 10 caravaners will visit, hiking, fishing, skiing or otherwise spend their time.

SF caravan member price is 23€/night during the summer and 25€/night during the winter.

Vuorokausimaksu ei SFC-jäsenille on kesällä 30 € ja talvella 40 €.
