Ruokolahti has around 6200 inhabitants, but the population is doubled in summer as holidaymakers occupy the 3000 summer cottages in the region.
Ruokolahti is especially known for its natural beauty. In the west there is the shimmering Lake Saimaa and in the east there are hundreds of smaller lakes. The big Salpausselkä ridges run through the area.
