 We arrived at the Fisherground campsite on Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday. The first contact we had was with the wardens who were really nice. It was nice and quiet with loads of spaces and we were told we could pitch where we wanted.
The toilet / shower blocks and washing up areas were lovely and clean at all times. A tip if you are thinking about visiting this site, take loads of food with you, there's only one shop at Eskdale Green and it certainly knows how to charge (1.60 for half a dozen eggs).
We had a meal at The Boot Inn as it was recommended but we found it very expensive for what you got. The little railway running past the campsite was great and worth every penny as you could go backwards and forwards as many times as you want for the day, we have 2 little girls and they loved it!
We had a campfire which we lit about 6pm after the logman came round the site selling a bag of logs for 3.50. After the kids went to bed we just sat around the fire with a few glasses of wine, which everyone else did as well. Everything went quiet around 10pm and the only noises we heard after that were a few snores from neighbouring tents (one being from my dad's) and then the birds started at 4am the next morning!
We are new to camping and we have been spoilt by this site, just hope that the next one we visit is as good. We will definitely be back here without a doubt.

 Just come back from a quiet mid week stay on this fantastic site. Had a good choice of locations to set up camp and the warden was full of advie when asked his opinion. Being able to set a fire in the evening was a real bonus to us as my partner refuses to camp anywhere that bans fire (he is a mountain born American and so his idea of camping is a little different from mine!)

Toilet blocks were clean and well presented although I feel that 1 for a quick shower is a cheeky way of charging more per pitch. The cost for us (2 adults, 2 kids and one tent, one car) was 17.50 per night.

There are very limited local services and most of these are more than a mile away, however the little train stops at the top of the camp site and takes you all over. The walks are stunning and if your boots get wet they can be dried in the boot box.

All in all a good trip and we will probably go back next year.

 We were recommended this site by friends who have stayed previously, well we weren't let down!

What a beautiful place to wake up in a morning, the views are amazing. The owners very friendly, the facilities although minimal are very clean, 50p for a 2 minute shower is a bit much though!

Recommend visiting Boot where there are a couple of good pubs, the Boot Inn being the best where the beer is great and the food very nice.

Allowing camp fires is also a nice touch.

 Nice site, lots of sheltered sites for your tent, toilets clean and water hot. Campfires are nice and add to the experience. The adventure park is very good but a bit too much for our 4 year old, he did enjoy the pool and messing about on the rafts.
We went for a very nice walk over the hill to Boot, where we had a picnic and a drink, then we caught the train back. The site does not have a shop not even for milk and bread, which would have been nice.
We will be going back as it is beautifull but will wait a couple of years until our son is older.

 Fantastic site, owners very helpful, booked two elec hook up pitches, put on wrong ones when we arrived after misunderstanding between owners, they later offered to move our tents or make us Bacon butties in the morning, took the butty offer. But they never came around with them !

Enjoyed having a camp fire, every site should have them, clean toilets and showers including a hair-drier (wife happy). Pub in walking distance (everyone very happy), what more could you ask for?

Reviewer: Shorties 2 reviews from this member

 Returned home on 13 June after a 4 day stay,what a great site! The owners are very helpful and friendly. They come round in the evening selling logs for the campfires which we had every night, a real novelty for the kids (and grown-ups!). The adventure playground and rafting pond kept my kids(8+11) entertained as did the miniature steam train which runs along the bottom of the site.

The toilets and showers were clean and there are washers and dryers for a small fee.

We found the 4 miles of narrow, windy roads a little scary in our motorhome but worth it for 4 days of peace and tranquility.

Would definitely go back.

 We stayed here last weekend and had a brilliant time , there was 4 dads and 4 kids . We arrived on friday, and straight away the kids were wet through after discovering the rafting pond and adventure playground.A fantastic site and location, we had a great pitch , although the large field was,nt open until later that day .The campfires were a real bonus and added to the experience .Cannot praise it enough.We went for adventure walks , were the kids discovered the spirit of 'Swallow and Amazons' and not an Xbox for miles .

The pubs in Boot were very good with the Dads enjoying the hearty food and plethora of real ales.And very kid friendly.

The owners were very friendly and helpful .We will definitely be back!

 Just returned from the Fisherground on Thursday 12 June 08 after a short stay.

The site as ever was quiet and clean and the amenities block kept clean at all times. It is a great escape away from the TV, also great to have the opportunity to have a romantic camp fire going and peace quiet after 22:30hrs but beware the birds wake you at 04:00 hrs.

We were a little disappointed as the large field was shut as the site was so quiet but never mind.

There are three pubs within walking distance if you want to eat out. We would recommend the Boot Inn. This is about a 2 mile walk.

 Fantastic location, great for young children. There are also three pubs within walking distance offering a choice of food and drink. The boot inn also has a childrens play area and an outside eating area.

There is a narrow gauge train running from the station about a mile from the campsite to Ravenglass (26 family ticket).

The site is well presented, the toilet area is clean and the staff are friendly. The no noise policy is followed by everyone except the sheep.

Midges can be a problem at dusk and dawn when eating outside.

If you are arriving from the south I would recommend taking the road through Hard Knot pass for some breathtaking views.

We will definatley be visiting this site again. Those of you with children take note! the pond and rafts are brilliant but leave the brand new holiday wardrobe at home and pack lots of old, fast drying clothes and some surf shoes or sandals, the kids will have the time of their lives and you wont need to stress about them ruining their clothes!

Reviewer: Hiekel Essterol 1 review from this member

 Firsly the location given on the map is wrong. The location given is actually some sort of hotel and does not use the name 'Fisherground'. Fisherground is about a half mile to the west of the map location' on the north side of the road, down a small track.

The lack of designated pitches made picking our spot a bit of a lottery and one that in hindsight I think we lost on as we ended up pitched on the end of 2 'closed' groups and a little too close to a fire pit meaning that we couldn't actually make use of it.

The site itself is great though with varied pitching areas from open field to sheltered areas with cover provided by either trees, rocks or walls.

The kids play area is a nice touch with the pond and wooded play area. Watch your kids in the pond though, rocks underneath proved a little treacherous for my son who slipped and knocked his kneecap out of place.

The toilet block is adequate in numbers with 4 each of showers, toilets, urinals, sinks. Dont know about the girlies side. Coin-op showers were warm and relaxing and plenty long enough. Outside there are a half dozen sinks and drainers for dish washing along with a washing machine, dryers and boots dryer. I believe there is a chem toilet disposal point around the back as well but didnt take a look.

All in all a great site that I look forward to visiting again soon.
