great campsite

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 10, 2006

a great place to stay. although 10km from the city centre it's easily reached by metro. it's at the lakeside, so why not take a bath after a wonderful day in the city?

Unique Quality: facilites include lakeside sauna, restaurant, good sanitary buildings and open-air kitchen places (with roof).

Directions: take the metro until rastila stop. go up to the bridge and turn right and then left again. only a few meters from the station.
there's also a spar for food etc just round the corner.

City Campsite

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 5, 2005

Rastila Campsite is a great and affordable place to spend your (overnight) time in Helsinki while enjoying some real Scandinavian nature nearby. Allthough in recent year the area around the campsite has been developed and is now full of 4-5 story appartment blocks, there is still enough forest and sea nearby to enjoy.

Plus of course, Helsinki centre is not too far away thanks to Rastila Metro station which is situated right in front of the campsite. The metro will take you in approximately 17-20 minutes to the city centre. The metro leaves about every 10 minutes (more frequently during rush hours). Just beware when you go back from the city centre to the campsite to take the metro to Vuosaari (and not to Mellunmäki).

Unique Quality: The campsite itself has a large space for mobile homes and caravans. Furthermore an area for tents and of course as most Scandinavian campsite have, also cottages. There is a very authentic restaurant on the campsite, which serves quite ok food for a reasonable price.

At the other side of the 'highway' is a large Spar supermarket where you can buy lots of stuff. There are some restaurants (kebab and pizza style), ATM, and a karaoke pub.

Also if you cross the highway and you stick to the water side, you will disover a large forest with lots of trails that lead you to some scenic views. From there it is also easy to get to the Vuosaari 'beach' area.
