This was our 3rd visit to this campsite over 8 years and each time it just gets better. We were initially staying somewhere else but when we arrived to pitch were instantly disappointed ( the ground was too hard, no views, minute camping area, poor facilities). As we were camping for a full week we wanted to stay somewhere we liked so immediately called the Fisherground who thankfully had room.
It was bank holiday weekend and expected it to be busy which it was but the way the pitches are laid out doesn't make you feel like you are on top of each other. My boys (12 & 15) enjoyed spending time by the pond and in the water and also walking up the hill that faces the campsite.
The facilities are cleaned numerous times throughout the day and are the cleanest I've seen at a campsite.The staff are always courteous and helpful.
The site is about a 50 min drive from Windermere and the usual Lake District attractions but is well
worth the drive.
I'd avoid the King George for food as we cooked nicer food on the camping stove. If you can make it a few miles in the opposite directed to Boot and the Woolpack ( who provides a pick up service in an old army style truck) these pubs are much much better.
All in all a fabulous holiday in the lakes and we are grateful to the Fisherground for providing an amazing setting and taking the stress out of camping!! We will most certainly be back!!
