The Lake District is England’s largest National Park, it’s great for Camping and staying at some of the best campsites around. It includes Scafell Pike which is its highest mountain and some stunningly breathtaking scenery!
As keen campers, we have been coming to Lake District campsites for many years now. We have stayed in remote campsites, campsites that you can pitch your tent right on the banks of Lake Windermere, which is the most awesome early morning view ever! The area is perfect for walkers, outdoor water fun, climbers, wild swimming, picturesque villages and pubs and of course camping and campsites!
The Lake District National Park is located in the northwest corner of England in the county of Cumbria. You can expect to see mountains, valleys, villages, towns, coastline and of course the lakes! With nearly 16 million visitors to the area each year this really should be added to your must do list! Windermere perhaps the most recognisable place in the Lake District, the Lake itself is ten and a half miles long and 219 feet deep and it is officially England's largest lake. Its name comes from the Scandinavian for 'lake of a man called Vinandr'.
The Lake District is a beautiful place to stay and visit. It is also a great place to really get back to nature by going camping. The whole area is blessed with some of the most premium campsite locations anywhere in the United Kingdom today. Whether it's in the centre of the bustling market town of Keswick or the peace and tranquillity of Langdale, Wasdale or Patterdale, there will always be a campsite that fits with what you need for your trip here.
