Just got back from spending 2 nights at this stunning site. I stayed here several years ago so can also say that the new shower block is a blessing. The views are stunning, overlooking derwent water and the numerous mountains that surround keswick. I would have to say that I find some of the staff a little over zealous. We had a small fire on our barbecue that was at least 10 feet away from our own tent and at least 30 feet away from any other tent. We didn't know that open fires were not permitted but the stroppy nature of the steward that cycled over and ordered us to extinguish it immediately was staggering. There are ways you can go about implementing a no fire policy, but to start saying that we could be responsible for the charred remains of other campers was utterly ridiculous. We actually only had one firelog on the barbecue (to deter mossy's and midges) and we were sat around it, it's not like we had left a roaring open fire with damp logs spitting and crackling and had gone to bed. Other campers mentioned to us in the morning that they thought the steward had been rude as well. It's only a small gripe but one that might make me consider using a different site in the future. Really handy for all the amenities of keswick as well as having numerous walks close at hand. Lighten up stewards, people are there on holiday!

Another lovely stay at Keswick the staff were as usual very friendly and helpful. The refurbished toilet block, laundry and campers kitchen is great, but must admit I did not use showers I used the lowers block these were fine for me and my family The site is situated on the edge of the lake a ( I believe you can launch your own boats for a fee} and within a short walk into town were there are great shops restaurants cafes and real ale pubs most of which allow dogs in the bars. The half marathon was run when we were there and was interesting to watch the end of the race at the rugby club which is next door ad open to campers to the site. There are plenty of walks for the fit within the area and buses to Windermere, Bowness, etc.

We have been using Keswick campsite as our getaway for many years and have never had a problem with anything there. We were always amazed that people complained about the toilet/shower facilities as they were always kept clean and tidy. Well they cannot complain anymore they are fabulous.

My only complaint is that we will have to plan breaks even earlier as this wonderful site is going to get even busier !

Its location on the lake, Booths supermarkets and the pubs (Dog and Gun) and lovely bars (Magnolia and Cafe 26) make it my favourite place to relax, walk and chill out with my hubby and dogs

First visit to the site and very impressed. In fact already booked to go back!

Excellent location with a few minutes walk to shops, pubs and town centre. Fantastic views of Derwentater, catbells etc. Can also launch kayaks, canoe's. From the site. Staff very friendly and helpful. Escorted to pitch and help assistance offered to park up. 2 facilities blocks and one seemed to be brand new. Lots of toilets and showers so no problem with queue's and always spotless during our stay. Mops and squeegee's on hand to clean showers down after use. On site dog walk with no issues of owners not cleaning up. Small shop on site. Picnic benches alongside derwentwater.

We parked the car on our arrival and it never moved until we left the site. Plenty to do locally.

This site is in a brilliant location, right on the shores of Derwentwater and a short stroll into the town centre. It makes an excellent base for exploring the Lake Dustrict - Borrowdale and the Northern Fells are on the doorstep and it is an easy drive to other places worth visiting, such as Ullswater, Grasmere and Ambleside.

In 2014, the site is undergoing a major revamp with a brand new facilities block under construction, meaning the older, dated facilities block will be no more.

Excellent site. Book early to avoid disappointment!

Visited here for the period over Christmas, the site had quite a few units on but the bottom end of the park was under water. The facilities are fine with plenty hot water.

The site is a few minutes walk from the town centre which is very nice an also very dog friendly.

Unfortunately our stay was cut short, due to the rain continuing on our second day, which caused the management of the site to evacuate everyone off due to the imminent danger of the site flooding.

We will return when it will possibly be a bit kinder on the weather front.

This was a lovely site on the edge of Derwentwater and just 10 minutes walk from Keswick centre with its shops and restaurants. The site has spectacular views over Derwentwater and is very popular. I would advise booking as we saw several people turned away when we arrived in October. Everywhere on site is very clean and well maintained. There are security gates to enter via a code and these are locked to vehicles at night. The pitches are level, well spaced out and mostly gravel areas set into the grassy surround. Electricity points are plentiful. There are two toilet blocks on the site, both a bit old but clean and with good facilities inside including showers with seating provided in the dry area, washing up & clothes washing facilities. The reception has limited shopping but does offer discount tickets for the Derwentwater launch. There is a lovely dog walking area along the lake and into the field next to the site. Doggy poop bags are provided at reception as well as bins at the dog walk. We are already planning a return to this site.

This site is a gem! It is in a beautiful spot by Derwentwater. If you are lucky enough to get a front spot facing the water - what a view. We were further back but still had views of the hills and cannot complain about that. It was our first time for visiting the site and won`t be the last. It takes only 5 minutes to walk into Keswick and also the main terminal for the buses. There are so many walks from the site, and we also cycled to Threlkeld down the old railway line which was very scenic following the river. The only negative about this site is the facilities blocks - they are so old and need updating. But the positives outweigh the negative. A mention for the wardens also - they are very friendly and helpful.

Just returned from a 3 night stay. The location is fab and there has been a lot of money spent on adding more hardstanding pitches. However, the toilet block facilities are still very poor and are in desperate need of refurbishment. The lower block is full of cobwebs and mould on all the tiles and ceiling. The site was full, obviously the new hardstanding pitches are bringing the money in, c. Mon Keswick upgrade your toilet blocks.

Stayed 2 nights and overall site was OK but would look for another when next visiting Keswick.


Good position

Clean amenities (agree they are old but were functional and clean)


Wet ground with lying water in many places

Lower field far too far from amenities (much better would be pitches close to entrance)

Overall feels much more set up for caravans. Camping feels like poor relations. Poor field, far from amenities.
