Csokonyavisonta (pictures will follow)

* Fishing Lake

Haromfa

* Fishing lake (hard to find someone to pay the ticket)

Kaposvar

Labod (actually between Labod and Kaposvar)

* Vidrapark (Otterpark)
The only one in Hungary (at least as far as my information goes)
You have to have a sturdy car or you are in for either getting stuck, break a part or have a long walk until you get to the entrance pf the park.
The road is bumpy and sandy, partly muddy. It is manageable on dry days though.
They open around 10 a.m. and close at. 6 p.m., but I have been there at other times and could still walk around.
There's a small entrance fee (around 600Ft I think), but it's well worth it.
