If you’re planning to explore the northern Lakes, our Keswick Club campsite on the shores of Derwentwater is hard to beat as a base for your explorations. 

The site boasts a prime location in the north of the Lake District with stunning views extending over the lake to the hills beyond. Keswick is an organised campsite with good facilities – showers, toilets, washing up area, a laundry and a new backpacker room, particularly useful for those arriving on foot or by bike. Keswick town is within walking distance and ticks all the boxes for provisions, outdoor gear, eating and drinking.

Whether you’re a stroller, a rambler, a high-level walker or prefer to see the sights on two wheels, you can take your pick from numerous lake- and hillside tracks and trails easily accessible from Keswick campsite. Skiddaw is also easily reached from site. And, with Derwentwater so close at hand there’s no shortage of water-based activities to dip into. This stretch of water is popular for canoeing and kayaking. For a small fee you can launch directly from the Sites shoreline. 

Fishing can be enjoyed on the lake too. Try the eastern shore or hire a boat from one of the marinas and head to the centre of the lake to catch pike, bream and trout.  

For a less energetic way to enjoy the water and the views board one of the motor launches which operate around the lake and offer several drop off points.

At the southern end of Derwentwater is the beautiful valley of Borrowdale where you’ll find the Neolithic Castlerigg Stone Circle and the medieval and much photographed pack horse bridge at Ashness.

Worth Noting

Due to the possibility of Site flooding all units must have a tow vehicle on site overnight. There may be restrictions on pitch availability and use of awnings. If you have more than one car or are visiting the site you may be asked to park off-site.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available.

Eat Local

There is a farmers' market in Keswick on Thursdays and Saturdays.

This review is for Keswick

We have visited Keswick regularly two or three times a year for the last 20 years and have seen its gradually improving facilities. A short walk to town with good transport links and shopping. For the more energetic there are lots of walks of varying levels of difficulty easily accessible from the site or via the local bus services. The problem is always the difficulty getting in, this site is very popular and usually full.

This was our first time in our motor home,so after doing lots of research into campsites and reading reviews we can honestly say that we chose the most amazing place to stay. The location and views were perfect. This site is kept in pristine condition. Our priority is cleanliness and Keswick club site shower blocks and site are spotless. The staff work hard to keep it at this standard. The whole staff were helpful and very friendly., well done to you all. We took our dogs and they absolutely loved it. You have everything in a very short walking distance eg supermarket ( must say we brought our Prosseco with us, only to find it was cheaper in the supermarket ?? ) yes the prices are good for a holiday town. They have a lovely town, eating places and pubs, market Saturday. We have already booked for two weeks next year and looking forward to going back for a much longer stay. It feels like we were in heaven as Keswick scenery was out of this world. Thank you to all and look forward to our next holiday.

This review is for Keswick

A fantastic place to stay, however, when I stayed recently we had an almighty downpour resulting in a massive puddle under mine and my neighbours tent. All other tent pitches were fine as they were drained and due to the pitches sloping slightly down from the road the rain just flowed down under the tents. When I reported this to management saying I may have to go home early they clearly were not bothered, no offer of help, no offer to move, just " Oh ok". I will not be returning.
