Hiking and camping influence the environment, but everyone can enjoy the nature around them without disturbing its balance. Littering has a longstanding effect on the environment, for example soda cans and different types of plastics may take over a thousand years to dissolve. Nature and other campers thank you, when you bring your own garbage away from the nature or when you use the garbage can near the lean-to. This way you help keep nature beautiful for the future campers!

In the outdoor recreation area one may pursue walking, mountain biking, geocaching and snowshoeing. Also at the lean-to one may light a camp fire and roast sausages. One may look from the observation tower at the changing landscape of Kemi.
