Unexpectedly, I drew a halfday free time to go somewhere. Yes, and not with me alone, but also with my friend, with whom we have not gone anywhere together for several years. We still remember ours with him tour of Russiaas one of the best trips in life. So, if you get out, then definitely with a tent, since this type of recreation and travel is always in the first place. It was decided to go to the Eye on the Simferopol highway.

Rest on the Oka
Post rather information (similar to the article about rest on the black sea with a tent) because we rode all day and watched,where you can get up with a tent, but I can not help but write about rest on the Oka. Guys, this is trash! After Thailand, Krasnodar Territory, Seliger, everything is so sad that I was even upset. Probably, nature lovers need to go not for 100 km from Moscow, but already for 200-300, otherwise you will also be upset, like me. Well, or go to such popular places as the Oka, or even not at all to the reservoir. Alternatively, look for places where you don’t have to drive up by car, but it’s already then that you’ll have to go to the Oka, if not by car. And so the sunset is, of course, beautiful, yes, regardless of anything ...
The first is garbage. I will never understand this, why shit where you relax yourself. In reality, there is enough garbage, and it is in the parking lots. Bottles, bags, bulls and more. There are places dirtier, there are cleaner, so you have to go and look. Alternatively, remove the garbage and burn it (and we did), but if it is a bit. Otherwise, the rest will turn into a garbage disposal / incineration event. Also in some places there is waste. I do not understand that it is difficult to go away, where no one walks? Or, if it’s scary to go far, then you can’t take a shovel and dig it in?
The second is a dirty river. After the seas and oceans, I do not know how to swim in it. The water is turbid, a strong smell of mud, algae, the bottom partly with sand, stones, silt and tires. The people, of course, are swimming, many people come with children all summer and do not see anything negative in this, but I couldn’t force myself to swim there. Perhaps the reason for the smell and dirt is that it has been hot for several weeks and the Oka River has become shallow.
It would be interesting to hear comments from thoseWho is there often, where does such a strong smell come from? And how was it 10 years ago, better or also? It seems to me that, in general, the Oka is not the best choice for bathing, because the Federal Service for Consumer Protection and Health of Ukraine regularly prohibits bathing in it, then in the Serpukhov region, then in Kaluga, due to any infections.
Tent sites on the Oka
Okay, go through the tent sites, but inIdeally, it is better to put time on the search, at least on the first trip, to travel along the banks and search for more. I remind you that from the nearest sights (well, if you get tired of sitting in a tent), there is Pushchino manorand Prioksko-terrasny reserve.
Naturally, tent sites are much morepost only what we traveled in a day. Alternatively, you can go somewhere to the Oka and continue to go all the time just along it, because in many places along the river there is a good primer. But every time we went back to the track. Do not forget about the satellite map, it is much easier to navigate through it than on a regular one.
In my opinion the left bank is more dirty and morecrowded. We drove to several places and did not want to stay anywhere. And the beach is bad, moreover, there is more silt than sand, and sometimes there is no sand at all.
Near Karpovaya Polyana. There is no access to the river here, but the glade is located deep in the forest, on the bank of the stinky pond (you cannot swim!), Quietly and calmly. On an ordinary car to reach difficult, sand and holes. We did not get there, got closer to the asphalt, it was too late, it was necessary to spend the night somewhere. Turning to the primer right after Karpova Polyana, there is still a gate to nowhere next to the turn.
Pryluky village. End of the road, although it continues on the map. In the village you need to turn right near the trash can, after 50 meters inside the village once again to the right, and after another 50 meters to the left to the river, through the gate. Between the village and the river you will see various dirt roads, you can drive along the coast and look for a place. Basically, people are all right in front of Priluk stop. Dirty and crowded.
About Nikiforovo. We turn in a direction to the village and drive straight ahead without turning right up to the river, even when the asphalt road turns to Zibrovo, that is, at this point we move onto a dirt road. Once near the river, we go right or left on the dirt road and look for a place. I did not take pictures, because we only saw one parking lot, and it is without a normal shore, sheer grass.
Near the spring. This is another road leading to Luzhki and the Republic. Turning to the source is indicated on the road by a pointer. But you do not have to go straight to it (there are 50 meters from the road), but turn right almost immediately to the road with plates. Closer to the river you will see concrete fences, you need to go further and look for a place. There is so-so, dirty and bad shore, although they come here for fishing. We only collected water in the spring.
Between Luzhki and the Republic. We drive through the Meadows, where people also bathe a lot, despite the steep congresses. And after Luzhkov there are a number of primers that lead to the river. We reach the Oka River and there is a primer along the coast, we are driving along it, looking for a place. That parking we saw with a decent amount of trash. Perhaps neighboring better.
The right bank looks more attractive (although maybe we just had no luck with the left). We immediately looked across from Priluk across the river to several tents, and so we immediately went to this place.
Pushchino. As an option to swim right in the city, where it is located Pushchino manor and ecological path. There is also a font with water from a spring, where you can then wash off all the dirt from Oka. Also here you can stumble with a tent, but we must understand that it is very close to the city.
Near Krasino-Uberezhnoye. It is better to go with the M4, much closer and the road is better, we went from the side of Pushchino and spent a couple of hours on it, I do not advise. It is a lot of turns, therefore it is simpler on azimuth / navigator. First, from M4, turn onto Taraskovo, get to Grigorievsky, turn to greenhouses (huge greenhouses stand all the field occupied), past them and to the bank of the Oka. Along the Oka, there is a good primer, and from it curls to the parking areas. In my opinion, here are the best places, and relatively clean, and quiet, and nothing on the shore.
Points on the map are noted according to the list above. All photos were taken just at these very points.
Camping on the Oka

Beach in Pushchino:
P.S. My task was to be in the fresh air and spend the night in a tent (that is, initially without bathing), for these purposes, the Eye is basically suitable.
