A walkers paradise set in 6 acres of woodlands and only 500 meters from the seafront.
Its coastal location on the outskirts of Ravenglass, a pretty Roman fishing village, makes our Ravenglass Club campsite ideal for exploring the coastal areas of the Lake District National Park. The campsite sits in six acres of mature woodland, once part of the Muncaster Estate, just 500 metres from the seafront.
This secluded and peaceful setting accommodates up to 75 caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. The hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes are spacious and there is a lovely tree-lined area for tenters. The campsite also offers three wooden camping pods, modern toilet and shower facilities, a large parent/child shower room and a well-stocked licensed shop. The village of Ravenglass with its three pubs is within walking distance of the campsite.
Coastal, woodland and fell walks can be enjoyed from site and the challenging Scafell Pike is a short drive away. There are also routes for cyclists and Hadrian’s Cycle Way starts just along the lane from the site at the Roman bathhouse.
Head to Ravenglass and take La’al Ratty, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway. The seven mile journey follows a stunning route through the Eskdale Valley. The mainline coastal train runs through Ravenglass taking in St Bees, Whitehaven and Maryport.
Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we
welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not
permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).Camping Pods at Ravenglass - find out more

this was mind blowingly good for a middle aged couple who wanted to leave the car behind and walk, catch the coastal and lake district trains and cycle without too many inclines!
Ravenglass must be one of the wildest and yet most pleasing villages on the North West coast, with 2 excellent pub/restaurants in the Ratty Arms and the Pennington Arms and easily a weeks worth of variety without even venturing far into the hilly part of the lake district.
The Site is so well managed you hardly notice the Wardens who seemed to pop up from nowhere just when you want them but otherwise are seen only on their regular rounds keeping an eye on things and watching for anything suspicious.
The facilities were so clean and inviting and even with 70 or so units in over new year there was rarely a wait for the facilities.
Hard standings are not quite flat but as good as and there are plenty of power and water and waste points.
The site managers are new from October 2015 and what a wonderful job they are doing.
The only comment I would make is a constructive one, that if there was more local produce for sale on site we certainly would have bought it. There is no food shopping in Ravenglass, but a fun 25 minute train journey to Whitehaven drops you by a big Tescos and an equally fun trip back brings you home and drops you a two minute walk from the site.
A place for relaxation or for natural activity without 21st century influences.
if you are prepared to lock your car keys away for a week, It was like going back to the 1950's with wifi and all comforts OR, if you want a quiet base for visiting the rest of the lake district, this is it.
And on top of all that a two minute walk to the Ravenglass steam railway
All in all, a perfect campsite for adults or children as long as you prefer a pub to a site bar and prefer the sea and sandcastles to swimming pools and laid on entertainment.

Toilet block immaculate . Pitches spacious . We have a twin axle and easily fitted on car and caravan . Loved the atmosphere! Storm Frank with very high winds came when we were there but everyone just got on with caravanning and camping as normal . It's something you have to be prepared for when you caravan in winter . Well done to the wardens and the club for giving us the opportunity to spend New Year on such a lovely campsite . Thank you and Happy New Year ! Sharon and Bern Smith from Wombourne Staffs

We stayed here and didn't really expect much from the holiday. I booked the site for its location.
Really enjoyed the stay. Children's play park was easy walking distance away. La'al ratty was good, and so was muncaster, both an easy walk. Village was also an easy walk with a few eating places to choose from. In summary, very peaceful and everything is just a short walk away.

A spotlessly clean site with a little shop and a great pub serving food nearby. In a lovely tree lined setting but still lots of light . Muncaster Castle and l'al ratty ( miniature train) great days out on the doorstep.
