A walkers paradise set in 6 acres of woodlands and only 500 meters from the seafront.
Its coastal location on the outskirts of Ravenglass, a pretty Roman fishing village, makes our Ravenglass Club campsite ideal for exploring the coastal areas of the Lake District National Park. The campsite sits in six acres of mature woodland, once part of the Muncaster Estate, just 500 metres from the seafront.
This secluded and peaceful setting accommodates up to 75 caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. The hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes are spacious and there is a lovely tree-lined area for tenters. The campsite also offers three wooden camping pods, modern toilet and shower facilities, a large parent/child shower room and a well-stocked licensed shop. The village of Ravenglass with its three pubs is within walking distance of the campsite.
Coastal, woodland and fell walks can be enjoyed from site and the challenging Scafell Pike is a short drive away. There are also routes for cyclists and Hadrian’s Cycle Way starts just along the lane from the site at the Roman bathhouse.
Head to Ravenglass and take La’al Ratty, the famous Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway. The seven mile journey follows a stunning route through the Eskdale Valley. The mainline coastal train runs through Ravenglass taking in St Bees, Whitehaven and Maryport.

Ravenglass is a fantastic site. Very peaceful in a great setting. Easy walk down to some good pubs. There are stunning walks from the site we particularly enjoyed the walk up the Esk through the Muncaster Estate. Walk up the valley and catch the train back. Cycling up Eskdale and Wasdale is easily accessible and not to strenuous unless you fancy tackling Hardknott Pass. Will definitely be back. Facilities recently updated very clean and well cared for.

We stayed at Ravenglass for 4 nights in mid September 2016 having been advised that the coastal location would be ideal for us after 10 days in the central Lake District at Torver & Borrowdale.
Others have described the site in great detail and we would generally agree with their comments. Whilst the site was pretty full during our stay, we never had a wait to use the showers � perhaps a dowsing in mid afternoon after a walk is the best time to visit!
We used the narrow gauge railway to get up to Dalegarth & walked back by the river back to Eskdale Green station to pick up the train again � lunch being taken at The George V pub in the village.
Opportunities to let the dog loose were limited as the fields were plentiful with sheep. However, he did get a good run on the beach/estuary mudflats when the tides allowed [we were almost stranded at one point when we misjudged the incoming tide � clambering up the sea defences was required!].
Having waited until the end of our stay to visit The Pennington hotel, the ale choice was disappointing [only two on display and one of them was �off�] but The Ratty Arms was much better � 5 real ales on offer and a �pub grub� menu. Next time we will know where to visit for our refreshments!

We came for a weekend, and found ourselves having to pick other peoples dog poo on site...also there are only two showers and three toilets in the gents...not good...why this has been priced as a 6 band, I don't know, less its just because its near the lake district....we have been on better sites on a lesser band, with better facilities and the walks have been just as good

Arriving at the site to meet our friends who were in a camper van and caravan we were greeted by a very welcoming group of staff. They were really pleasant and we were immediately advised that they had put us next to our friends when we thought we may well be in a different part if the site due to being campers. There is a small very welcoming store which sells milk chocolate etc. The toilet and shower blocks were very very clean although there are only two showers in both the men's and ladies which can cause a bit of a queue. Some lovely walks to be had around and about. Take a trip on the Eskdale railway to the last stop at Boot and walk back via the pub - its about 8 miles. Very peaceful at night. Would recommend this campsite and will certainly be back. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
