Tolosen talo, roughly translated as ”The House of Tolonen”, lies near the Saarijärvi parking area entrance to the Repovesi national park, about 100 meters from the entrance gate. The premises were originally constructed in 2005 as an accommodation for maintenance personnel working in the forest. Nowadays the second floor of the building has been converted to a rental apartment. A well-equipped tenement with full electricity, Tolosen talo offers pleasant accommodation for photographers, researchers and in general for everyone in need to charge their batteries during their stay in the national park.

The Repovesi national park adheres to the principles of leaving no waste behind. This means, all non-burnable waste that you bring with you must be brought out of the national park. Under any circumstances do not leave food stuff behind, as they attract animals. Do not discard compostable waste in the outhouse, as the outhouse does not have a compost system.
