Small lake that is fed from springs - thus relatively clear water. Dead trees have fallen in to the lake and there are usually small groups of fish (mainly perch) under these trees. Were nice ambiance on a sunny day. Altough access is not difficult to find, the route there may be, so it might be wise to ask a local diver to guide you there. Ruutanalampi. Dirt road goes about 20 m from the shore, good place to park after a fairly steep hill down.

At first the water looks veru clear, but when you start going deeper you'll notice milky haze at about 2.5 meters. This haze becomes gradually thicker until you have zero visibility at about 6 meters. At about 8 meters the stuff is so viscous that it becomes difficult to move. This was interesting experience, but I don't really consider this place worth diving at all.
