This was our third visit to this site. It is in a fantastic location one toilet block has been updated to a good standard very clean lovely wardens. What a shame the ccc did not tell us that the second toilet block upgrade and general site upgrade was in full swing. If you are considering a visit, best leave it until after end of March unless you want to spend your time dodging speeding builders going the wrong way around the site and loads of noisy machinery. All units had to pitch in one area of the site, what a pity ccc did not have the decency to inform us when booking rather than give us a printed letter about the works on arrival. Sorry ccc willnot be renewing our membership, pitches even though upgraded are too small

Just had two nights stay at this lovely campsite, perfect location as it is only a three minute walk into Keswick town, where there are plenty of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, to suit all. You can catch a bus outside Booths supermarket to lots of surrounding villages and towns. The site itself is lovely, spacious pitches, and all the staff are so friendly and helpful. Shower and toilet block spotless. Can purchases a few essentials in the reception, and also sell gas. Will definitely be returning.

Been loads of times but thought would give an update.

The shower block has been updated at last and it is really good great showers loads of hot water excellent.

As usual the staff are so friendly and helpful and the road has been resurfaced with extra pitches on gravel and it has been very well drained it's such a good site in an outstanding area - Keswick is an amazing town with so much life - good bus service outside Booths supermarket amazing pubs and shops in the town and fantastic walks the area is really picturesque and you couldn't wish to wake up to a better view and we've only ever been in the winter!

Very busy place best to book in advance

AS last review said toilet block is great, and the good news is the other toilet block is now been refurbished. If its like the other it to will be great, it also looks like they have put some ground drainage on the grass pitches near to the lake, all the roads have been resurfaced into and around the site, wardens as usual great service.

I cannot say enough about this site.

Great reception from site upon arrival, despite the rain. Efficiently checked in and shown to pitch. Location is right on the lake but also only five minutes walk from marvellous Keswick.

Toilet and shower block are immaculate with plenty of space and plenty of hot water!

Small shop on site but supermarket very close by also.

Scenery from site is amazing, every time you look out over the lake or mountains, the view has changed. A photographers paradise.

Can't wait to go back.

Possibly one of the best sites in the Lakes for location. It's right on the shore of Derwentwater with stunning views but only 5-10 minute walk into Keswick.


The toilets and showers have been totally refurbished in 2014, which was the only drawback during previous visits to the site. They've done a brilliant job and facilities are now spotless.


You pay for the location here. In high season, expect high fees. Well worth it though.

Arrived late on after a phone call.

Plenty of space mid week on the backpacker field in front of Derwent Water, beautiful setting.

Check in smooth and as non members, cost was plus £6 odd per tent.

Pitching no issue, the odd stone only.

Shower block was clean and great.

Sleep no issue, early up with the noisy geese.

You can swim in the lake and charges are £2 something to launch a kayak.

All in all, loved the site and will return.

Quick walk into town.

Don't go booths for breakfast as it was pants!

Reviewed before but thought I would do an update!

We come to this site every year as it is simply the best! The views are magnificent. On arrival we asked if we could be close to the play area and the friendly assistant showed us to the perfect pitch. The upper toilet block has been renovated to a high standard, personally I never had a problem with the toilet block but I know a lot felt they were outdated - they certainly aren't now! Plenty of warm showers (although you can't adjust the temperature and they're push button - but this is often the case) and nice clean bright facilities. A short walk into town and you're in the centre of keswick. Booths is great to pick up everything. You've got to have fish and chips from the old keswickian. We also enjoy a sandwich from Jan's Lakeland sandwich shop at the top of the street, very tasty.

This really is the perfect site - amazing views, great walks from your pitch, friendly staff and a great play area!

First of all, be sure to book! We turned up on spec on a Sunday lunchtime with a tent and only just got in.

It's a beautiful location on Derwentwater, a short walk away from all the facilities in Keswick, very handy for eating out, shops, and buses if you don't feel like driving. There are great walks out from the site, we didn't need the car once we'd pitched our tent. Nice showers and washing up facilities.

The one minus was a noisy group coming back from town at 3 am on two nights. However, when we reported it when leaving (we were out walking and didn't get back until late the first day) the staff said they'd have thrown the group off if it had been reported beforehand, so they are prepared to deal with this.

Fantastic site, would definitely go back.

Reviewer: Suzyjayne 2 reviews from this member

Love this site been several times -always clean, tidy and well maintained. New toilet and shower block this time which was spotless. Campsite is ideally situated and within walking distance to Keswick.

The staff are polite and some of them can't do enough for you. One issue I had is that my husband and I are members of the caravan and camping club and have been for several years and have been to the site. For the last few years I have only had to show a membership card now you have to show each persons card so please remember to take these with you as they are unable to check membership even though it is a club site!
