Camping near Lake Ullswater

If you are looking to go camping in the Lake District, then look no further than Park Foot Camping and Touring Park. Set on the banks of Ullswater, in the heart of the Lakes, we have three camping fields, all with electric hook up points, suitable for tents, caravans and motor homes and each have their own modern toilet and shower block.

Shop field is situated close to the shop, Sandall Field is situated closer to the club house. Aikbeck Field has access to Lake Ullswater, providing stunning, picturesque views for those long, hot summer nights. There are drinking water taps placed conveniently around all the camping fields.

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.

Family camping

Family camping at Park Foot, Ullswater

We are a family friendly holiday park. 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 park 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.

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 between 11pm and 8am. If there is an issue during your stay, please call our office number on 017684 86309 which will be directed to security after office hours.

I've been to this site a few times over the past 15 or so years and just stayed here for a night again last week. It's a nice site but can get very very busy during peak times. If you avoid these times it's very pleasant and have sometimes only had another 3 tents in the same field! It's a nice 10 minute walk into Pooley Bridge.When I was here last week I witnessed a very loud and aggressive man F'ing and blinding at his kids right next to the play park being told to pack up and leave by Park Foot staff/security. I even saw the police turn up and interview people in the tents near to where they had been soon afterwards, presumably for kids safeguarding.Was glad to see action taken so that others could enjoy their trips. Well done Park Foot.read more

We understand that people bring lots of devices camping with them these days, but the vehicle beside us has literally had its engine running for several hours today, as well as yesterday and the smell from the fumes is awful. The Highway Code states this is illegal, but assuming there is nothing that can be done on private property. Not only does it smell, but it’s also noisy. Not ideal! We’ve been coming here for years and this year we’ve literally been smogged out of our lovely camp ground.read more

It was our first camping trip with the kids and we all had such a brilliant time and enjoyed the park, facilities and stunning views. The only downfall that would stop us going again well atleast before summer was that the shower blocks were like ice. It was sooo unbelievably cold it really didn't make you want to go to the toilet or use the shower because as soon as you walked in you could feel the cold cut straight through your clothes. We have been to other camp sites without the kids and never experienced such cold shower blocks before as there all well heated. We would come back again just not in April.read more

Stayed here at beginning of Nov for a week. we booked the cottage but we're upgraded to a lodge due to refurbishment work. The lodge was beautiful inside and had a wonderful view of the lake. The only downside was the club was closed and so was the shop on site. I think people should be made aware of this when booking. The site was empty apart from a few other people staying in lodges etc. The only other problem we had was the jcbs driving up and down all the time but it was out of 'season so I suppose they have to do work sometime. our pup didn't like it though. I would stay again but earlier in the seasonread more

The place and scenery is beautiful.. how ever being ordered to pay a noise deposit over complaints about our children making noise in the tent in the morning was ridiculous considering people were sat up till all hours drinking and being loud. It takes the fun out of camping so if your looking for a camp site to sit in silence this is the place for you!read more
