Of the '50 World Best Campsites', chosen by the 'Independent Newspaper' Fisherground is in the Overall Top 18 and in the Overall Top 4 for Children's Enjoyment. 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.
A children's paradise, with rafts on the pond, a tree house, a zip wire, Tarzan ropes, and an adventure course.
We are one of the few campsites in the Lake District where you can enjoy the pleasures of an open fire, we do insist that fires are only lit within the insitue fire pits, and children are well supervised around the fire, so don't forget your mashmallows 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. Includes hand dryers and hair dryers and coin operated showers.
There are also 6 deep sinks for washing-up. Hot water is free, and always available.
The Laundry has a washing machine, which is operated by token (available from the Warden), powder is included. There are 3 tumble driers available, which are operated by 50p's. We have a boot drier for those of you who love walking whatever the weather.
The facilities are cleaned routinely throughout the day and is maintained to the highest standards. There is also a freezer available to freeze your ice packs.
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.
