The campsite is lovely with great views , the best part was the fire pits! I just found it a little expensive compared to some other campsites in the lakes and there are a lot of rules that you get reminded of quite regularly, which is quite understandable to keep it pleasant for everyone but sometimes found the 2 people...

The site itself is fine. However! After waiting 20 minutes after a four hour drive to be escorted to our pitch (we pointed out our friends where there and lots of space next to them) is not really what you expect. Then a full list of rules to go over. And also, parking your car away from your tent is... More

Wanted to try out the new tent for a longer break in July so came across this place. Really glad we did. After a nightmare journey, don't listen to your SatNav and come in over Hard Knott Pass, we arrived and were shown to our pitch. Were told all about what to expect and where everything is. Got the tent... More

This is a very well organized campsite, with loads to offer everyone. We spent 2 nights here over the Easter weekend and loved it. Our pitch looked up to the miniature railway and station.. hidden in the woods and had our own fire pit. They sell logs and kindling at the entrance to the site, but then in the evening... More

Fantastic site, beautiful surroundings. Our 7 and 5 year old boys loved the space, the small Lake play area and the train. Well kept site, friendly staff and great facilties. Shower doesn't last long though & washer machine was expensive but this won't out us off from returning :)

We're only 20 mins away so on a particularly sunny evening decided last minute to go camping. It is possible to stay for one night outside of the school holidays and I suspect if they have pitches available it will be possible at other times too-although I've not tested this I've stayed at the fisher ground several times over the...

I haven't stayed at Fisherground for quite a few years when the children were younger, but I found myself going back there having been attracted by the ability to have a fire in one of the pre-positioned fire pits. The site is in the beautiful Eskdale Valley and even has a stop for the Ratty miniature railway. The site is... More

Our family of 16 have just returned from Fisherground campsite. Honestly..... We would definitely recommend this campsite. We were a little worried about the big group thing, but when we explained to a lovely lady on the phone that we were all seperate units and 3 generations of pensioners adults and children, with 4 small dogs, she said this would...

We were met by unhelpful staff who overcharged us by £50 & had to prove this in order to get my money back. The campsite is in a beautiful place, it is such a shame that it is run by the most unhelpful and aggressive (if challenged) staff. I would not recommend this site, as it has too many rules... More

An excellent campsite where all the facilities are very well maintained. Great to see up to 30 children at one time playing freely in the 'pond' and adventure playground. Some were in the water at 7am in their pyjamas. The plumes of smoke rising from the campfires in the evenings was magical against the backdrop of rock surfaces and wooded... More
