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. For a small fee you can launch directly from the Sites shoreline. 

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.

Had a fantastic 3 night stay.

This review is for Keswick

Had a fantastic 3 night stay. What a lovely welcome from the lady at reception! Very helpful and friendly warden showed us a choice of pitches, nothing was too much trouble. The site is well managed and the facilities were spotless. Have stayed on this site a number of times in previous years but have never been welcomed by such a friendly team. We'll be back. :) Very easy to walk into Keswick for shopping. Booths supermarket very close by. Lovely Saturday morning market. Good tourist info office. Lovely walks directly from the site. Can also walk to catch a boat for a lake cruise.

A friendly and caring welcome, superb views over the Lake (or there are quieter sites to the rear with a forest-kind of aspect) and a superbly maintained site overall. Loved Keswick, its pubs, shops, restaurants and culture. For walkers, real ale lovers, nature lovers and dog owners, this site is hard to beat.

Great location just over 5 minutes' walk to Keswick town centre.

This review is for Keswick

Great location just over 5 minutes' walk to Keswick town centre. We received a very warm welcome from the wardens and they were so helpful, friendly and approachable during our 6 nights' stay at the end of November. This is the first time we've stayed on the site and would definitely return, probably out of peak season again. Fabulous location close to the lake and all of the attractions of Keswick.
