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.
Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we
welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not
permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).Camping Pods at Ravenglass - find out more

If you are travelling up from the south to Ravenglass the route is 'interesting', with plenty of hills, twists and turns, plus a few narrow stretches to keep you on your toes.
When we arrived on site there was a warm, friendly welcome waiting for us on what was our first visit to a Camping & Caravanning Club site. There's a good supply of essentials available at the reception, which is a good bit of enterprise given there's not much by way of shops in Ravenglass itself.
Our allocated pitch wasn't one of the better pitches on site. It was sloping so ramps we're needed to get reasonably level. It was also quite small and very shaded all day. Most other pitches did seem to enjoy a better mix of sunshine and shade. At least the van stayed cool!
The shower and toilet block facilities, whilst clean, are in need of an upgrade. There are only two showers, three toilets and no privacy cubicles. This resulted in queues on both mornings we were there. The Caravan Club sites we have stopped at have all hod better facilities.
On a positive note, one really nice feature of the site is its proximity to Ravenglass itself, which is just a few minutes walk away. Here you will find places to eat and drink, a beach of sorts, a miniature steam railway, stunning sunsets (if you are lucky) and the ruins of an old Roman bath house.
And, when it comes to proximity, Muncaster Castle is only about 20 minutes walk away. This popular visitor attraction is certainly worth a visit. Discount vouches were provided at reception but we'd already found a bigger discount voucher by searching on-line.
This is a good site but the limited facilities could be improved.

Stayed here for the first time with my partner, 4yr old and 1yr old. Superb location and great access to the rest of the lake district. Site staff excellent and very accommodating. The site amenities are spotless as is the rest of the site. Muncaster castle is within waking distance and definitely worth the visit and is within walking distance of the site. The local narrow gauge railway is superb especially for children. Had some great meals in the Ratty arms and very reasonable. The pubs in Dalegarth at the end of the railway line also serve very good meals and as always with a family, very good value for money. So good we stayed an extra night !

A very friendly site away off the beaten track, wardens could not be more helpful helping beyond their responsibilities'.
There is a lot of work being carried on to sea defences nearby so can be a little noisy when lorries are delivering to site.
3 pub restaurant's in the village which are all dog and walker friendly - we recommend The Ratty nearest to site.
Main line station close by so easy to travel to Barrow or Carlisle.
There is a small shop on site for essentials, supermarkets 2, 5 and 25 miles from site so you need to plan.
We've been twice this year and will be back in new year.

Easy access to the town, very clean site, helpful staff, Well stocked shop and used the vouchers to get money off on the railway and muncaster castle.
Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to camp for first time or experienced.
One thing to consider was the facility cleaning times from 11-12:30 where none of the showers were available for men or women. Just one day would of been handing to use one shower while other was being cleaned but small detail.
Great break and will defiantly visit again.
