About Wasdale CampsiteThis remote valley, with towering mountains, cascading screes and an awe-inspiring lake, is an adventurer’s paradise.
Wasdale Campsite boasts a very impressive location. As well as space for tents, Wasdale is home to seven heated camping pods and offers 11 campervan pitches with hard standings and electric hook ups.
Facilities at the campsite include an on-site shop, a recently refurbished toilet and shower block, washing-up areas, a laundry room, electric hook-up to tents and charge points for electric bikes.
Ideal for walkers, the site is situated in between Wastwater and Wasdale Head and is perfectly placed for tackling the Lake District’s highest fells, including Scafell Pike, England’s tallest mountain. Otherwise, the area is great for cyclists too, just make sure you have the right bike and equipment as the area’s trails can get a little adventurous.
