Wasdale Campsite

This remote valley with towering mountains, cascading screes and an awe-inspiring lake, is an adventurer’s paradise.

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.
