Camping sites

Camping in the Lake District is always popular and there are a wide range of campsites, so whether you’re happy with just the basics in a quiet, remote valley, or would like a little more luxury with on-site shops and pubs, there’s a huge choice.

This range of accommodation allows gives you popular choices such as camping on Lake Windermere or in Keswick, to more secluded locations. Many larger campsites also have a range of additional facilities such as leisure pools, entertainment and a site shop - often sharing the location with caravans, campaign pods and more.

If you're driving to your campsite take care when using a Sat Nav, a good old map is always a big help. Check your locations carefully as some spots in the National Park can be very secluded and Hardknott Pass, Wrynose Pass and Honister Pass in particular are among the steepest roads in the country.
