A beautiful location, Keswick campsite is great for active campers.

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.

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.

This is a great site for walking and touring the Lakes.

This review is for Keswick

This is a great site for walking and touring the Lakes. The town of Keswick is on your doorstep with the Derwentwater launch, which act as a water bus only 10 mins walk away. The Supermarket and bus station are again very close and all the amenities of the town. Keswick even has it's own Theatre by the Lake hosting many well known West End productions. If you love the Lakes you will love this site.

On arrival in small group were welcomed. Advised re no noise, which in happy with. Suffered this elsewhere before. Pitches were apart, but due to booking size pitches of tents. My pitch was great. Handy for water with kayaks. Water points good. Plenty of fire points. Toilets and showers plentiful and in great clean condition. Laundry looked good. Didn't use it but was all you needed. Noted a good room for back packers. Excellent idea. Only thing missing was a drying room. Staff well presented and active. All well mannered. Bins etc all good. Shop had a few things in. That said town close by. Very happy to return here again soon. Loved it.
