Ideal for tent campers and handy for Scafell Pike, Wastwater & Eskdale cycle trail.
Our Eskdale Club campsite is nestled in the beautiful Eskdale Valley in the Lake District.
The area is a paradise for walkers and so Eskdale campsite is well equipped for tent campers, backpackers and cycle campers. Motorhomes are also welcome.
Modern heated facilities include a drying room, showers, washing machine and a well-stocked shop. The campsite also has ten camping pods and a camping barn sleeping up to eight if you fancy glamping or want to camp as a group.
Boot is within walking distance of the campsite with dog-friendly pubs and a station for the seven-mile Ravenglass and Eskdale railway, which passes through the Eskdale Valley. Scafell Pike is easily accessed from the campsite, but if that is a little too ambitious more gentle walks take in Stanley Ghyll Falls and Burnmoor Tarn.
For days out go to Muncaster Castle and the World Owl Centre or enjoy the amazing mountain scenery of the Hardknott and Wrynose Pass.
Fully equipped Camping Barn - £135 per night
Camping Pods - £43.75 per night

Tents and motorhomes only. Access a little narrow for bigger motorhomes but fine for our 6 m long Dethleffs. Don't come over the Hardknott pass for obvious reasons. The site is beautifully located and extremely well run. Good site shop but worth bringing some supplies with you. Great walking from the site - from major hikes to shorter, local river walks. Enjoyed it more in the week when it was quieter - very popular at weekends, but not really a problem. Hope to go back when we next make it to the Lakes.

Just had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Eskdale site. Nice, friendly, relaxed atmosphere in the most beautiful of settings. The owners were extremely helpful, allowing us to pick our pitch and explaining the facilities.
The family shower room was genius and all the showers/toilets, etc where immaculate. I have no hesitation in recommending this site and we will be using again in the future.

“We have just stayed in the camping barn at Eskdale with two daughters and four grandchildren. It is a superb facility with virtually all the equipment you could want and plenty of electric points. The camp beds are good too. The site is lovely , and was quiet even though packed and full of families with children. The views are wonderful and the station for the steam train to the coast at Ravenglass is a ten minute walk away. The wardens at the site were extremely helpful and friendly, and the shop is very well stocked. The loo facilities seem new and are very clean. ”
