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.
Sorry, no awnings or wind breaks permitted on The Oval. Minimum booking for Club Service pitches from 20 July to 1 September and English Bank Holiday is five nights (except standard pitches), all other times three nights. Please note there are no dishwash

Easy access to the site - just make sure you drive to the last caravan site entrance! There's a Booths supermarket just round the corner for the panic buy. The site is very compact with I think 17 hard standings and was very quiet given its proximity to the town centre. Electric, water and warm shower block - what more do you need!

Walkers and cyclists will love this site and public transport is available a short walk from the site entrance. Site facilities could be larger but have been adequate during our spring and autumn visits and well maintained and spotless. Nothing is too much trouble for the Site Team of Mike and Christine who worked hard to make our stay enjoyable.
