Lake District National Park Location

The Lake District is one of England’s most beautiful corners where green dales merge with stark, rocky mountains. The landscape makes any camping trip to the Lake District great for exploring and full of adventure.

Ullswater, Grasmere, Derwent Water, Coniston Water and Windermere (the only actual lake in the area) are considered the most beautiful stretches of water to visit when camping in the Lake District.

The 3,500 Kilometres of public right of way throughout the park are perfect for camping trips where walking or cycling are the planned activity. The 16 lakes mean it’s easy to find water based activities in the area. Pick from canoeing, kayaking or a much slower paced cruise on Windermere, Ullswater, Coniston or Derwentwater.

The Lake District is the birthplace of mountaineering and the national park has the highest concentration of outdoor activity centres in the UK. It too has inspired writers and artists over the centuries, including the likes of Beatrix Potter, Turner, Coleridge and Wordsworth to name a few.
