What a terrible site. Filthy broken toilets with little regard for Covid. Rats running freely . The owners should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. It is a comparable price with sites in the area of a superb standard. The site should be closed by Environmental Health

Haven’t even visited this site. However me and my partner have just called up to see if they have any availability. The man was extremely rude on the phone and when he asked us our ages he became even ruder. I told him that I’m 24 and my partner is 22. We would like to come for two nights with our 6 month old pup. He immediately said “oh no no no not having that” and put the phone down. Well I’ve never ever encountered a situation like this. And for the fact we’ve been judged by our age???!!! Absolutely disgusting. Yes I know some people don’t like younger couples on sites etc… but that was just plain rude and disrespectful. And by reading these reviews looks like we’re not missing anything! Absolutely disgusted. Definitely won’t be calling back.

Absolutely awful and worst experience of camping, dirty camp site, cold 50p showers, horrible and rude owners the wife not so bad but the man is a horrible, chauvinist unprofessional We booked 2 nights here for £40 CASH and let’s put it this way we left before night 2. The owner wasn’t for refunding the £20 and reluctantly chucked it at me and said don’t come back I mean it with a threatening tone… when I calmly and reasonably told them what the issue was. I wouldn’t dream of treating anyone like they did never mind my customers!!! Very bad customer service and business. we are disgusted with this place for the stinky poo smell, terrible amenities, unkept grass, no rule enforcement and abusive owner. Their website says they have a strict policy on being quiet after 11pm otherwise the campers will be asked to leave, well what a load of BS. A huge family of 6 cars full of people rocked up to pitch tents at 10.45 and it was going on until 2 am me and my partner had to tell them all to be quiet until 2 am because the racket they were making was indescribable - kids screaming, car doors slamming, cars still running til, blowing up beds with electric pumps , 5 men trying to put 2 man tents up and shouting between them in their loud foreign language to eachother… nothing was done so we had to step in and tell them all to shut up in the end ! We rang the office 3 times and could clearly see that this strict policy did NOT exist whatsoever.. then at 5 am the same families children were on the swings and see saw shouting and screaming so we got just under 2 hours sleep !!! Don’t come here if you are a clean polite person who wants a nice trip away we’re now coming home to bed !!! Can’t wait to visit park foot again a PROPERLY RUN SITE.

Had everything we needed, after check-in we were left to enjoy the trip. Plenty of space between tents, mens showers had a space for dressing in addition to showering. Great views and great location, 30 minutes to Pooley bridge, and very close to the lake. Lady cleaning the loos was also very friendly!

If I could give ZERO STARS I would! Awful customer service and embarrassing behaviour from the campsite owners. We booked over the phone for a group of 8, over a month in advance. We also rang up the day before our reservation to confirm the order. On arrival we pitched our tents, then went to book in. We were met by the campsite owner who stunk of alcohol. When we tried to pay for the campsite he went into a fit of rage and assaulted someone in our group and demanded we left the campsite, despite us trying to calmly resolve the issue. We had to leave at 8pm and we had to drive 3 hour back home. Overall, disgusting behaviour to customer and a lack of common decency toward people. I would recommend against camping here at all costs!!!
