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

This review is for Keswick

One of our favourites over the years, however my son was taken to Cardiff hospital to have his appendix out. We had to take him out of hospital a day early as the site wouldn't let us stay for one more night to accommodate us. They also insist on payment for launching any boat no matter how long for and constantly remind you. It's beginning to feel like a business which wants the most money from you rather than a campsite. Very disappointed of late. It should get back to the basics of a campsite.

This review is for Keswick

Spent 3 nights here as my parents were on the site for 14 days. New toilet and showers were great and clean (as were the old ones). The views were fantastic and its an easy walk into the heart of Keswick for the shops, bars and cafes. The hard standing pitch had plenty of room but there were a few people in around us which meant there was a bit of confusion on which hookup to use and they had to drive through our pitch to get out.

This review is for Keswick

we stayed on tis site in June 14 for ten nights. We were welcomed on site and offered a choice of pitch. The newly refurbished top facility block is most impressive and the efforts made by the HSM's to temporarily keep the bottom facility block going left us almost speechless. A job well done! The staff team were all pleasant and hardworking. We can thoroughly recommend this site to all members as there is something for everyone.
