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.

The site and its facilities were excellent.

This review is for Keswick

The site and its facilities were excellent. Over Christmas we had a lot of rain and much of the site flooded. The wardens worked very hard, including over Cheristmas night, to ensure all units were safe and secure. The wardens could not have been more helpful and reassuring. A very big thank you for a very professional service and a lovely site

This is a great site well organised and spotless, During our stay we had torrential rain resulting in the site and most of the area flooding. We had to evacuate the site Simon the manager and his staff were spot on clearing the area and relocating us to Derwentwater next door. We are booked on again for Christmas so looking forward to returning.

We stayed at the Keswick site in early November.

This review is for Keswick

We stayed at the Keswick site in early November. We were lucky with the weather and this meant that we were able to enjoy walks out from the site. The wardens were all very friendly and helpful on our arrival. It was the first time we had stayed at this site but hopefully it won't be the last. The views from all the pitches seem to be amazing. The facilities were always clean, and the site is conveniently located for Keswick town centre. Very happy with our stay here and looking forward to a return visit.
