Derwentwater Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a simply stunning caravan park in Cumbria, sat on the banks of Lake Derwent a short walk from the town of Keswick. Our park offers extended season opening from early March to early January, and welcomes motorhomes and touring campervans onto the site.
Our park is child and pet friendly, with a play area and open spaces on site for ball games and running around, while the immediate access enjoyed to the whole of the Lake District National Park will also appeal. You’ll find electricity hook-ups as well as facilities for washing up, laundry, and chemical waste disposal on site, and we also provide Wi-Fi internet across the park so you can look up the best attractions of the Lake District and plan your day.
Derwentwater Camping and Caravanning Club Siteis split into two areas, both of which offer amazing views of the surrounding hills and of Derwent Water itself. You’ll find our pitches are all nicely secludedfrom the breeze, allowing you to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay with us.
The obvious centre for activities when you stay with us is Derwent Water, which offers fun and enjoyment for those looking to relax and take in the peaceful surroundings, as well as for those looking to get involved with something more active. Daily boat trips across Derwent Water, many of which can be enjoyed with lunch and drinks, are a must-do, especially if you want to take the ferry one way and then walk back along a picturesque lakeside path. Activities available on Derwent Water include windsurfing and canoeing, as well as swimming. For a great balance between a fun activity and relaxation, fishing and golf is also easy to get involved with at various locations, not just around the nearby lake but throughout the entire Lake District National Park.
The town of Keswick is just two-minutes from the site, and has local convenience stores, a selection of great cafes and restaurants, and a supermarket where you can get everything you need for your stay. There is also an outdoor clothing store in town, where you can get your essential clothing if you are planning to take on famous walks of the area and explore the peaks of the Lake District National Park.
