 I cannot fault this site. Everything you need is at hand. A fully stocked shop, takeaway and restaurant.

The site is immaculate, showers and toilets are spotless.

Pooley Bridge is a pleasant 10 minute stroll away.

Well done to all staff who work there.

 Fantastic week away at Park Foot. The site is very well organised, play parks well equipped and suitable for all ages, kids loved it!

Shower/toilet facilities Very clean and well monitored.

The staff in the office and all around the camp site were extremely helpful, friendly and professional, listening to our needs and taking their time to support us as a family.

A short walk into the village and to the lake where you can use your own water equipment, go fishing or just throw stones into the water.

I have been coming to this campsite since I myself was 7 years old, 20 years on I am now bringing my family and will continue to do so. We just LOVE IT!

 Huge campsite on the shores of Ullswater.

There are several areas, but we used Aikbeck which is closest to the lake and Pooley bridge.

Club house and entertainment provided on site.

Well stocked shopping.

Facilities modern and well maintained.

 A site with lovely views of Ullswater, spoilt by its massive size, overcrowding, tiny packed in pitches & badly run by teenagers.

So if you’re loud, brash with a shed load of kids & couldn’t give a monkeys you’ll love it.

Reviewer: Jusbluey 25 reviews from this member

 My partner & I were lucky to spend 4 fantastic nights on this campsite. The weather was sensational making the views even more glorious. This is a large campsite divided by the road.

We were pitched at the lower end with fab views of the Lake. We spent our days walking in the area, using the ferry & bus. I thought the shower facility was ok, free & warm, with a small area to sit or place your clothes.

The 15min walk into Pooley Bridge is fine, there are 3 pubs, but due to the incredible no of people partaking of liquid & food refreshment we did not eat at any of them.

It was obvious the glorious weather had drawn many people to the area. We returned to the site on Friday after walking in Patterdale only to find that all camping fields were filling up with tents, in fact I thought it resembled a refugee camp.

There didn't seem to be any form of warden control & people were virtually doing just as they liked. The same old story that some thoughtless so & so's thought it was ok not to clear up after their dogs (& there were many dogs, which I don't have a problem with as I have 3).

Signs saying dogs to be kept on leads were ignored (mind you some children needed keeping on a lead). It did seem at times that all & sundry had access to the private footpath down to the lake.

Had it not been for the good weather I would have been very disappointed.

It was not a site for me & it is highly unlikely that we would visit again, which is a shame because it is in a great location

Reviewer: Noeliewoly 5 reviews from this member

 No wonder this site has won the award for best campsite of the year. Lovely grassed area's but hard standing where required.

There is a shop, bar and recreation area but Pooley Bridge is only 3/4mile away where there are more shops and nice pubs.

The walk is very pleasant as the path runs along the embankment of the lake. Most places around the lake are well accessible by path or road albeit narrow ones in a lot of places.

The only down side for us was that the tents not too far away were a bit noisy and they didn't adhere to the camp rules of reduced noise after 11pm.

Prices without electric were very good at £15 per night

Reviewer: Pinkfloyd 19 reviews from this member

 Re-visited this caravan and tenting park after approx 15 years since last visit. Sad to say little has changed apart from the huge price increases.

Still using the same ‘Portaloos’ we had all those years ago, for £30 a night at Weekend this was way too much to pay.

Pitches are just the same as always were, no improvement on site as far as we could see. Food ‘Take away’ costs for a tiny offering of chips was unbelievably expensive, staff need to learn how to accept money from paying customers, not grab it out of your hand without a Thanks.

Not impressed by manageress who seemed to think our complaints were ‘funny’ by laughing at us! Very disappointed overall with this site, not helped by rather amateurish staff on the phone dealing with people who had genuine reasons for concern.

Only 1 Elsan point in very large caravan/camping field too. Come on Parkfoot, you can do better than this for the money! Won’t be back here in a hurry!

 Just got back after a 3 day stay. It does help that the weather was so perfect. As many others have stated it is a large site and after paying our £60 for 2 nights, (it being a bank holiday), were directed to the field known as lake view. We got a bit lost luckily and found a superb pitch by the stream. You wouldn't want to be in lake view.

It's on the top of a hill and the showers and lavatories are at the bottom of the hill. There are few level pitches available and the 'Lake View' is only possible by peering through the trees!

We had great neighbours who had left us all plenty of room. We did the fell walk to Howtown, got sunburnt and can hardly move today with aching muscles.

Got the steamer back to Pooley Bridge. Went to the social club where they had live entertainment which was an utter hoot, like something out of Phoenix Nights.

We loved the whole weekend and aim to return at some stage.

 First impressions were the size and how busy the place was. This was not a problem, but a vast majority of Clientele were walking around with cans of Stella in hand, when they were taking there kids to the park, etc, at lunchtime, and for the remainder of the Saturday, so there was no wonder that a Punch Up ensued that evening outside the Clubhouse!

The Park has rules displayed on boards, but unfortunately no rules are enforced. An Example of this being the amount of Dogs roaming around, defecating all over, without there owners acknowledging or picking up. This was observed on numerous occasions!

My party decided this was due to the busyness and it being a Bank holiday weekend, so we'd not right it off yet. The park is in a lovely setting, and easy access to the Lake.

There appeared only 1 Elsan disposal, and 1 shower/toilet block, which was less than adequate for the size of park.

The site quietened down after the weekend, and we were in a great EHU spot (Pitches A-O)

The final nail in the coffin came on our last day/night when a family consisting of 6 Tents and additional camper vans rocked up. They persisted on playing Cricket on the grass in the middle of the pitches, but without any consideration for others, thought they were playing the Ashes by blasting the ball all over, so if you cherish your Car or Van, you would be returning home with additional dents! They also had 3 dogs roaming freely, and pestering our friends tied up Puppy and Dog. 1 of there dogs crapped behind the tents, and when there second performed the same Act, I informed the party of 20+. I was initially blanked and ignored, it was only the second complaint, that they went looking to picking them up.

A friend of ours informed security of there behaviour, and it took them over 20 minutes to arrive, as they were dealing with another incident. However, the dogs were continuing to roam free, so whatever was discussed had no impact.

The site was also very expensive and you did not really get value for money.

This place is not a friendly place to visit, and it seems to attract a certain type of individual. I must stress, however, that there were also a lot of respectable types, but we will most certainly not be going back.
