Your guide to camping and campsites in the Lake District, designed by campers for campers.

Family Camping in the Lake District

There are hundreds of so-called tourist information websites offering list after list of campsite addresses in the Lake District but very few of them give you the information that you are really after.

What are the camping sites really like, what is there to do in the area, what's the local pub like, how easy is it to find, what's the walking like, will I need my car once I'm there...?

With over 38 years experience of camping and camp sites all over the Lake District, we like to think we know a little about what people are looking for.

This is the Really Useful Guide to Lake District Camping regardless of whether you are a serious outdoor enthusiast or a leisure camper who simply enjoys the pleasure of being outdoors.

Some of our camping sites also cater for touring caravans, camper vans and static holiday caravans too. "Glamping" in luxury yurts and camping pods.
