A tranquil base for conquering Scafell Pike
Wasdale campsite nestles under the Scafell mountain range at the head of beautiful Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, with its distinctive Nordic character and the pyramidal peak of Great Gable reflected in its waters.
Wasdale is definitely the place for high fell walkers and climbers, but also affords handy access to all that the West Cumbrian coast has to offer.
The site has all the main facilities you'll need during your stay, including an on-site shop, shower and toilet block and laundry facilities.
