Camping in the Lake District


If you are looking to go camping in the Lake District, then look no further than Park Foot Camping and Touring site. Set on the banks of Ullswater, in the heart of the Lakes, we have three camping fields, two of which are set within the main camping park. Shop Field, situated close to the shop, has electric hook ups making it perfect for touring caravans and motor homes. Sandall Field is closer to the club house and is popular with both motor homes and traditional tent campers.

The third camping field, Aikbeck Field has access to Lake Ullswater, providing stunning, picturesque views for those long, hot summer nights. Aikbeck has separate toilet and shower facilities within the camping area. There are drinking water taps placed conveniently around all the camping fields and modern facilities provided.

We want our guests to enjoy the experience of camping in Cumbria, so we endeavour to provide a friendly service and impeccable facilities. In doing so we hope our guests will continue to camp in the Lake District year after year, appreciating the beauty of Lake Ullswater, Pooley Bridge and our surrounding area.

PLEASE NOTE – We allow the use of raised BBQs, but campfires are not permitted.

Bringing your Tent

In welcoming specifically "family campers & couples" to Park Foot it follows that there are some campers that we are unable to accept. We realise that different people have different holiday requirements and simply acknowledge that we cannot be "all things to all people" without compromising the service that we offer. We therefore do not accept single-sex groups and non family bookings.

Schools and organised groups are welcome and must be booked in advance.

At the owner's discretion parties may be asked to pay a noise deposit of £10 per person on arrival in cash. Out of consideration for those with young families, we ask that there is no noise please after midnight.

Family Camping at Park Foot, Ullswater

We are a family friendly campsite. We welcome bookings from families and couples looking to enjoy the wonders of the Lake District. Family camping in Cumbria can provide a wonderful holiday for a wide range of families. Camping at Park Foot provides you with a vast array of activities and facilities both on the park and in the surrounding area, so you can be assured that your children will be entertained. The site is large enough to remain peaceful for those looking for a more tranquil, relaxing camping break. Park Foot is also close to a number of Lake District family attractions, including the Ullswater Steamers, and our staff will happily help you plan a day’s activities.

Touring Caravans and Motor Homes

Electric Hook Up pitches (max 10 amps) are available on gravel or hard standing to accommodate touring caravans, tents and motor homes. These must be booked in advanced. Car parking is next to your pitch. A digital TV aerial is required in the Lake District to receive signal.

If you’d like to book a camping or touring pitch at Park Foot then you can book online or telephone our office on 017684 86309, we look forward to helping you to enjoy the unforgettable experience of camping in the Lake District.
