A remote valley with towering mountains, cascading screes and a moody lake, Wasdale is an adventurer’s paradise. Whether you arrive by car, on foot or on a bike, the route into the valley is a challenge but the rewards are great.

Our campsite sits between Wastwater and Wasdale Head and provides immediate access to the highest fells in the Lake District, including England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike.
In addition to regular camping pitches, the site boasts seven heated camping pods, two Nordic tipis with wood burning stove as well as campervan pitches with hardstandings and electric hook up.

Wasdale Campsite is open all year and can be found on the map at GRID REF: OS NY183076
