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.

I have been visiting this site since the early Eighties, and it has evolved over this time, we were only here August 2014, but the club has spent time and money over the winter to not only update and improve the smaller wash block but also revamp and update many of the pitches, with improved water points and hook-ups, beautiful site in a great location, cannot be bettered......................just don't tell too many people otherwise I will not be able to get a booking in future!!!!!

We went into a bakers for a loaf of bread and were asked if we were locals, we said no and asked why she asked us, the reply was that if we were we would have got a 10% discount,we also found that it was dearer to buy bottles of beer to bring home from the brewery than from one of the shops in the town, it seems as if all the prices go up for tourists.

Really REALLY friendly and helpful staff. Both toilet shower blocks are immaculate and large. Never had to wait for a shower. An easy walk into Keswick and more strenuous walks from the site. Including catbells.
