wild camping sites

Wild camping

Wild camping is not permitted anywhere in the Lake District without prior permission from the landowner. As the National Park Authority we do not have the power to allow camping on private land and we do not permit camping on the small amount of land that we own. Camping in car parks or on roadside verges is not allowed at any time.

From 4 July, many of our campsites will be reopening in a socially distanced way and there really is something to suit everyone in all areas of the National Park. We would encourage you to explore what facilities are available before you visit, as not all businesses will be opening fully.
