Wasdale Campsite

Wast Water

Wave goodbye to winter as Wasdale welcomes in the spring. This remote valley with towering mountains, cascading screes and an awe-inspiring lake, is an adventurer’s paradise. There's no better time to visit.

Whether you arrive by car, on foot or on by bike, the route into the valley is a challenge, but the rewards are huge.

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 round.
