Keswick is a two-minute walk from this site with water-based activities on Derwentwater.
Our lovely little Derwentwater Club campsite is nestled between Skiddaw and Derwentwater in the north of the Lake District and is enticingly close to the pretty market town of Keswick. In fact, pull on your walking boots and you’ll be in the centre in just minutes. It’s easy to see why Keswick is the major centre for tourism in the region with its many varied shops, restaurants and museums, not to mention the lure of water and the hills.
Our Derwentwater campsite has recently been full refurbished to the high standards you would expect from a Club site, whilst maintaining its peaceful ambience. The National Trust’s Crow Park and Hope Park are close to the campsite. The latter offers crazy golf and a putting course. Enjoy low level walking around Derwentwater’s shores or if you want more of a challenge Skiddaw, Helvellyn and Striding Edge and Blencathra are close by.p>
Head to the Keswick launch and hop on board a cruise boat for a 50 minute tour of the lake or jump off at one of the seven lakeshore jetties.
Back in Keswick the Cumberland Pencil Museum, the Keswick Brewing Company and the Theatre by the Lake are all worth visiting.

This is a lovely site, within easy walking into Keswick or down to the lake. The site was spotless, the facilities top notch. The scenery surrounding the site is stunning. Keswick is a lovely town with plenty of choices for eating or drinking. We had a very nice meal NYE in the Packhorse Inn and the atmosphere in the Square at midnight was brilliant.
Well worth a visit and we would not hesitate going back next new year, or indeed anytime.

This is on of the best sites we have been to.Very close to Keswick, and the supermarkets, and the pubs and restaurants.The managers are very friendly. We used to go next door to the main Keswick CCC site,but the management there are rude,and arrogant. Not friendly at all.

Site location superb, good level pitches although I noticed quite narrow for those with caravans. Not sure if they could put up Awnings as nowhere for cars. New toilet block, although one of the showers had flooded. Also wood veranda to toilets lethal when it froze over. They may want to put some slip guards up!
