  • Sleeps 3 (max 2 adults, 2 children)

The Owner Says

Fisherground Campsite is set right in the heart of Eskdale, one of Cumbria's loveliest valleys. Here on the West side of the Lake District we get less rain and more sun than our famous cousins the other side of Scafell. In this quiet valley there is still the Peace and Tranquility that should be Lakeland - but rarely is in the bustling centres. Peace is the watchword on the Campsite too. We welcome Walkers and Families alike, and every effort is made to ensure you enjoy your stay with us.

This small grass pitch is suitable for tents 3 x 3 metres. Each pitch includes one adult, tent and a car. Please note, maximum of 3 people per pitch.

We have an adventure playground with rafts on the pond, a tree house, a zip wire, Tarzan ropes, and an adventure course. We are one of the few campsites that do allow campfires, we only ask to please use our onsite fire-pits, don't forget your marshmallows and toasting forks! Sacks of dry logs are available on site.

We have recently refurbished our toilet block, it is modern, clean, airy and spacious. They include hand dryers and hair dryers and coin operated showers. We also have 6 deep sinks for washing-up and hot water is free and always available! The laundry room has a washing machine which is operated by tokens (available from the warden) washing powder is also included. There are 3 tumble dryers available, which are operated by 50p's. We have a boot drier for those of you who love walking whatever the weather!

Eskdale Green our nearest village has a great little village store with everything you could need for your trip, even an outdoor clothing section for that new pair of boots or waterproofs. We have choosen to support our local village shop and have no convenience store on-site, the shop at Eskdale Green is just a 5 minute drive away.

Site Facilities

Unmarked pitches in 2 main areas: a larger field nearest to the children’s playground, and a smaller, quieter field nearest to the toilet/shower block, with wheel rims for campfires. The recently refurbished toilet block has ample hand basins, showers (50p-coin operated), and loos; all clean and well-kept. There is a washing machine, 3 tumbledryers, a boot-dryer and freezer. The kids will be straight into the pond, rain or shine, before you’ve had a chance to even pitch your tent. As well as the playground and pond, there are rocks and trees for climbing on and plenty of space for ball games – there’s a field next door for bigger games. No shop onsite, but you can buy logs, kindling and firelighters. Noise after 10.30pm is not allowed.
