Walking is a popular pastime in this glorious part of the world, and there are plenty of favourite walks in and around the area near Derwentwater campsite. There's a well-trodden trail leading from Keswick up to Mt Skiddaw - a 3,054 ft summit that dominates the northern lakes skyline. Stock up on goodies in Keswick, pack a picnic and enjoy the picturesque trail towards the peak where, naturally, hard efforts are rewarded with spectacular views at the summit.
Nearby, Hope Park is another scenic picnic spot. It's a glorious estate with panoramic views of the surrounding Lake District mountains and rolling hills complete with its own 9-hole golf course, putting green, a Pitch and Putt course, a boules pit and a hilarious 18-hole crazy golf course that's perfect for budding Woods and McIlroys.
On a breezy day, Crow Park is a great spot to fly a kite. It's a large open field just opposite 'Theatre By The Lake' in Keswick and offers a lovely view of the lake and fells. Fitz Park near Keswick Leisure Pool is another recommended kiting spot.
