A beautiful location, Keswick campsite is great for active campers.

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.

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. Prices.

Eat Local

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

This review is for Keswick

Really enjoy this site for tranquility, magnificent views and very close to Keswick which is full of character. Numerous, excellent restaurants and pubs serving good meals too. Only real gripe is the pitch sizes are somewhat tight for reversing off a single narrow road onto your pitch without avoiding running over the grass. You are asked not to damage the grass as you arrive at the barrier by the warden who directs you to your pitch on your arrival. Asked at shop if I could exchange my Gas bottle and later when I parked car outside shop to collect bottle was told by two wardens waving their arms like mad that in no uncertain terms I could not 'park' there under any circumstances! Gas bottle cage was directly opposite shop! Was told I had to find first available vacant pitch to 'park' my car which was nearly as far away as our caravan was...Stupid rules or what! Apart from that still very much enjoyed this site and will go back again soon, will make sure I have plenty of gas first though....
