Keswick is a two-minute walk from this site with water-based activities on Derwentwater.

Our lovely little Derwentwater Club campsite is nestled between Skiddaw and Derwentwater in the north of the Lake District and is enticingly close to the pretty market town of Keswick. In fact, pull on your walking boots and you’ll be in the centre in just minutes. It’s easy to see why Keswick is the major centre for tourism in the region with its many varied shops, restaurants and museums, not to mention the lure of water and the hills.

Our Derwentwater campsite has two distinct areas of touring pitches – The Oval and Walker Park. Both are popular for their simplicity and peaceful ambience. Facilities although basic are clean and adequate. But the location is the real appeal. The National Trust’s Crow Park and Hope Park are close to the campsite. The latter offers crazy golf and a putting course. Enjoy low level walking around Derwentwater’s shores or if you want more of a challenge Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Striding Edge and Blencathra are close by.

Head to the Keswick launch and hop on board a cruise boat for a 50 minute tour of the lake or jump off at one of the seven lakeshore jetties.

Back in Keswick the Cumberland Pencil Museum, the Keswick Brewing Company and the Theatre by the Lake are all worth visiting.

This review is for Derwentwater Oval / Walker Park

We have stayed on The Oval several times in the past and always found the site managers to be helpful and friendly but Mike and Christine have 'raised the bar'. The facilities are spotless and the site is very clean and tidy with some good sized hard standings. Building work on a site near the entrance did not detract from our stay. The noise was minimal and the contractors used a road sweeper to clean the road daily. We particularly like the range of facilities that are available in close proximity to the site - its a few minutes easy walk to the town centre but its also possible to access the fells or lake from the site on foot. This gives a nice choice of easy days in Keswick or on site or more active days as the mood takes you and the weather suits.

This review is for Derwentwater Oval / Walker Park

The best all round site we have ever been on, We have been looking for many years for a site and area that we we want to go back to over and over again! Every thing is on your door step, we can't get around like we used to, gentle strolls are about our limit now, the five minute walk, either to the town or the lake through Hope Park and the floral gardens is perfect. Paul and Gill Newton.
