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 recently been full refurbished to the high standards you would expect from a Club site, whilst maintaining its peaceful ambience. 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.p>

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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for Derwentwater

Site location superb, good level pitches although I noticed quite narrow for those with caravans. Not sure if they could put up Awnings as nowhere for cars. New toilet block, although one of the showers had flooded. Also wood veranda to toilets lethal when it froze over. They may want to put some slip guards up!

This review is for Derwentwater

I understand that due to the flooding that hit Keswick during the winter, the planned refurbishment was delayed, hopefully the CCC will consider further work to provide more super service pitches in the future. The decking around the toilet block was slippery on the 2 frosty mornings we had-OK for us but less stable visitors may struggle over the winter. Lovely peaceful site to relax after days out walking-fab!
