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.

Eat Local

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

Note to previous review, our pitch and 2 others were flooded out, so the wardens very helpfully moved 2 families and their tents by the pods so they could dry out! We were fine in the caravan and lived in our wellies when leaving the van!

Very good camping. Stopped last week but abit unhappy about our pitch. No big tents on seaside or in front of pods but the day after their was two huge tents. I always thought we could pick where we wanted to go.Have people been allocated these prime positions.Not fair!Not club policies! Whether I am a member or not I can go where I want?I pay extra for this. Please beware of the regiment by the managers!

Excellent site. The site is kept very well.

This review is for Keswick

Excellent site. The site is kept very well. Please be aware of the staff that take the club policies to the book one day but not the next! I was reprimanded for putting a windbreak out but the next day it was OK for my neighbour. The managers therefore not imposing policies for everybody. Well be back!
