I went to Fisherground after 'finding' it on the 'net.... well I am surprised at other's reviews ! This site is a joy... three pubs nearby, yet it is peaceful on site. The locals are fine people, as are the staff and owners. I like to be left alone when camping, and when the noise 'rules' were explained, I thought 'Great - no noise at night' - I am a light sleeper and do not like noisy people.
During the day and early evening there is some noise from the other camper's children playing - but they are on holiday - and it was nice to know that they are enjoying themselves. By 9pm all was quiet, and I found all the children to be most polite and respectful. Some times they may get over-exited, but they are on holiday - and happy !
I, as most people. have sometimes grumpy moments, but do not 'bite' others - it's not their fault ! Some people are best avoided as they seem to feel they can pass-on their stress - well that doesn't work, and if you don't know the 'un-written rules' of camping, then they maybe you should learn them before making comments of or about others - one staff member even asked me if I had a piece of wood to put my motorcycle stand on, so it (the bike) didn't fall over - how helpful is that ?
I have stayed in many sites, and only found a couple that I wouldn't like to revisit due to the attitudes of other campers - this is NOT one of them, and I can't think of another site in the Lakes that I would rather camp at. I found all the staff and owner to be fine - some people do want too much from the staff, there are only a few of them compared to a lot of campers. Running a site that is devoted to being a family site must be hard work, but I did overhear one young lad saying (in a very tired voice) ' This has been the longest day ever !" - something tells me he'll want to return.
