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 two distinct areas of touring pitches – The Oval and Walker Park. Both are popular for their simplicity and peaceful ambience. Facilities although basic are clean and adequate. But the location is the real appeal. 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.

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.

Although the staff were very welcoming we found site facilities well below any other C&CC site we have been to. We live quite local but have never been able to get on the Keswick sites due to club restrictions but won't be bothering waiting again there are much better sites in the area.

Lovely site which is clean & well looked after. Friendly and helpful staff. Loved the wild-life... Hoards of rabbits and a robin that came to sit on our step!! Was really delighted to find such a gem within a 2 min stroll of Keswick. Didn't get to see Derwentwater so we will be back...soon hopefully!!

This was our third visit in the last 12 months. Each time we have found the site immaculate. The site managers are extremely welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble which makes a difference, and really makes this a great site. One of our favourites.

This review is for Derwentwater Oval / Walker Park

We returned after a break of a few years and realised what we had been missing - so close to the town but great walks to the lake straight from the site. We like that fact that it attracts couples rather than families although they are catered for on the Walker site next to it.
