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

We always used the Keswick Site as we brought a boat but as we have got older we now prefer the peace and quiet of the Derwent water site. It is nearer to the town centre and attractions there. A short stroll takes you to Crow park, the theatre by the Lake and the lake itself. Catch a launch, play mini or crazy golf, enjoy a coffee looking over the Lake. A longer walk takes you to Portinscale and a lovely marina cafe where you can gorge on an enormous scone and a lovely pot of tea, again with lake views. Thursday and Saturday are market days and on Saturday a lovely lady sells beautiful plants. The Osprey centre is worth a visit and would thoroughly recommend the 77 bus which does a circular tour from Keswick. We sadly are retiring from touring but have enjoyed the years visiting Keswick in July for our wedding anniversary.

Immaculately clean with friendly, helpful staff. Minutes walk from Booths and pubs, shops etc. Walks and bike rides straight from site. Also near to Derwent water launches for trips around the lake and Cat Bells etc. Other places nearby include Whinlatter forest park for walks/mountain biking and Dodd wood for walks and viewing the ospreys.
