We camped here for 2 nights. Beautiful and tranquil surroundings. There are sports facilities around the lake which are used by the locals. Great coffee shops and restaurants. Not far from the city.

Around the lake there is an excellend quality road, the length is about 5-6 kms. You can practice water sports like kayaking, canoeing, also waterskiing. I saw people practicing baseball, too. Anyway, nice place for recreation.

On the day we visited the weather was fantastic yet there were not many people to be seen. We hung out on the pebble beach but had been told that we should not swim in the water by one of the locals even though we were originally wanting to go there because of reviews online saying it was great for...

Jarun is a wonderful place for biking, rollerblading and walking, it is a great pity that poorly maintained, and what is allowed cars to operate on him. Every weekend I was at the park

Beautiful park with plenty of water sports. We had the best Pizza in Croatia at a cafe on the lake. Locals are very friendly and will chat with you for hours. Facilities are good, handy tip, bring some toilet paper.
