Coopers Camp Site

I've camped here loads of times, the farmer gets less grumpy each time! I love that he has a character! The walks from here are brilliant and the pub is a great alternative to bbqs. Many a good weekend spent here.

We have no complaints at all. This place was just the job for what we were after. My husband and I were after a basic camping base from which to do some walking whilst we were kid free (whoop whoop) It's basic, but what can you expect for £13.00 a night. There's hot water in the taps, a decent length shower for 20p, a choice of pitches, most with views of the amazing countryside. We also found the owners to both be lovely, very pleasant and helpful. The great bit about this campsite and the reason we foresee us returning again and again is the fact that you trip and you are in the beautiful countryside, you trip again and you're at a great pub (The Nag's Head). There is also another pub within walking distance, a post office selling drinks, crisps etc and two cafes. We'll be back.....and soon.

We are regular visitors to Coopers campsite and we love it there, and we see plenty of tents and vehicles there that we recognise, so there are a lot of regular customers. Remember it is a basic campsite in a lovely unspoilt location.
The site has 4 fields which slope slightly, this gives excellent drainage. There are flat plots, but these tend to be take first, just remember to sleep with your head high up.
The toilets and showers are basic, but clean, there is fresh loo rolls by 9am (as they all get used up overnight) and the showers are hot and cost 20p, and last longer than you need.
The camp site is located right at the start of many fantastic walks, eg Kinder Scout, Grinds Brook, Crowden, Jacobs Ladder, Hollins Cross, Mam Tor, Castleton. There is a pub and post office at the entrance, and a pub, church and railway station just down the road. It is a blessing that there is NO mobile phone signal in the whole valley, you really can switch off from work and technology.
Most of the visitors are friendly reasonable folk, though there can be a few rowdy groups on occasion. The owners are lovely people, so why knock them, they have to put up with the Trolls and sometimes have to deal with unpleasant visitors.

Stayed at Coopers with the wife in a tent for just 1 night. The location is brilliant as its at the entrance of Kinder Scout walk & next to a large pub & a Post Office/convenience store.
The site was well manicured & it really is difficult to fault.
The owners has taken some serious stick on here but I found the lady fine if a little curt. I assume you can become weary as a campsite owner..., just imagine how many idiots they have to put up with?
Luckily, we had quite respectful campers near us including a couple who had obviously fell out as we could hear their 'whispering' arguments which was very thoughtful of them as you really had to listen close to hear the cursing. It obviously wasn't resolved as the girl slept in the car all night.
There was a couple of very drunk girls who couldn't find their tent at 3am who kept falling over guide ropes but they ended up in a tent although it clearly wasn't their tent as 3 surprised blokes took care of them.
There is a couple of beautiful pussycats in the area which is always good.
I would recommend Coopers as it can't be beat for a base to explore.
Enjoy.

I have visited Coopers many times in the last couple of years, and as campsites go, this one is brilliant. Lots of fields with plenty of space, you choose your pitch yourself aswell which is good. The toilets are basic, showers are 20p which gets you an average shower. The campsite has a shop, a cafe and is right near a pub which does amazing food! As fields go this is a good one!!

We (two adults and one dog) arrived Fri 3pm and found the site with relative ease. Booked in at the house just after the entrance, booking taken by who we presume to be "Mrs Cooper", who gave us a brief run down of the do's and don'ts and then directed us to the site.

There are a number of fields and there were loads of pitches available when we arrived, you can pretty much pitch where you want, the first field is nearest to the toilet and shower blocks. There is a slight slope as mentioned by others but this does not cause a problem at all. The total cost was £31 (including £5 refundable noise deposit) for two nights.

The facilities are basic but clean and what do you expect in the middle of a field. Toilet roll did run short on occasions but any seasoned camper would have their own, as they would soap or hand wash too. Showers are 20p and hairdryer 10p, not unreasonable we thought. There is a water tap just before the toilets and we presumed it was for drinking having seen most of the camp fill up their water bottles!! There are plenty of sinks for washing up and hot water is available. We didn't actually see much of the 'Coopers" other than to check in and out so can't really comment on their social skills, don't think its that important really!

The campsite is in a great location for walks and we and the dog thoroughly enjoyed it. "Coopers cafe" is within the site and did a lovely cuppa and butties, ideal if you fancy a lazy weekend and don't want to do much cooking!! Visited the local watering holes (for investigative purposes only of course) an they are both worth a visit after a hard days walking. The Old Nags Head is within a one minute walk of the site and serves reasonably priced food and drink. The Ramblers Inn is a little further, perhaps five-ten mins walk and has a selection of real ales and we had a lovely meal on the Fri nite. I would avoid the wine though at £4.50 per glass and it wasn't anything special, made up for by the very friendly staff though. Both are dog friendly.

Overall we feel this campsite is great value for money and will definitely be visiting again!

PS if anyone has any ideas on how to control the weather it would be greatly appreciated as the only thing that spoilt our weekend was the good ol' British weather!!

I have stayed at this campsite twice now, the first time was a dreadful experience. On arrival you are meet with a rather grumpy farmer who hands you a card with details of the campsite rules which is very encouraging as it states no noise after 10pm etc, etc. So all looked good. So found a lovely spot pitched the tent all was well. Went for a nice walk came back to the tent to find that we had been boxed in by 6 large tents all around us, with loud music playing rubbish everywhere, so myself, husband and two other couples went and complained to the campsite owner, who really couldn't have cared less, so we thought ok, give them the benefit of the doubt they may quiten down later, we all went to the pub came back to music blaring kids running a muck rubbish strewn all over the site, wouldn't mind but this was 11pm. Gave up any chance of trying to sleep, the whole group did not stagger into their tents until 2am.
I get the impression this campsite appeals to alot of people who just want to go to the pubs and get plastered and not appreciate the beautiful surroundings and do not respect their fellow campers. The campsite rules are clearly not enforced. This has happened to us twice now, never going to this campsite again, there are loads of other campsites in Edale that are quite peaceful and tucked away. This would be a last resort for us, ad even them probably wouldn't stay here.
