Used to camp here years ago, it's quite a drive from home but always felt it was worth it, couldn't fault the previous owners. How things have changed! Just got back from a 2 night stay and was glad to be leaving. It reminded me of an american war movie where the commander whizzes round the base in his little open top jeep. They tell you where you can pitch your tent and which way to have the door facing. What a nightmare it is carrying all your stuff from the car, especially when you have... (read more)

The location is superb and it is an ideal place for those with family. However, I would not consider ever going back. To begin with there was a long wait at the reception to be let in. It seemed to me an aweful lot of time was wasted for no good reasons. I was told to move my car 3 times in the space of 20 yards. My friends had to listen carefully while the rules were read out to the quequeing people. Once inside, the gap between the tents at some places were not even 9 feet with many... (read more)

i have to agree with some of the comments on here re the wardens/owners , they are rude sometimes , the have bad customer care skills , they made me feel uncomfortable , i've known people told off for so many various things! other campers regularly were talking about the owners . if you can handle this , then it has some plus points - you can have a fire , its quiet after 10pm , toilets & facilities are ok , scenery is great . remember - no campsite is perfect !

I hated this place when i went. We got moaned at every five minutes because we were either talking or moving a finger. We got no privacy when we lit our fire we were not allowed our fire on past 10pm so we had to be freezing.
the owners were bossy old cows. The kids were shouted at for having fun and the owners were perverts and we would have liked to know this before we paid. I would never come again and wouldnt be allowed as we were banned because the men got out of there tent at night to... (read more)

Fisherground is a lovely campsite, great for kids especially park and play pond,good facilities, really quiet after 10.30pm.
However campsite was spoilt by extremely rude owners. From day one we were spoken to in a rude manner and from then on I witnessed incidents daily. The reasons for these were as simple as driving on the edge of the grass to pass a parked car. People were made to unpack their car as quick as possible and put thier belongings onto the grass in the rain so to get the... (read more)

All the above reviews seem harsh, We went to Eskdale, Fisherground Campsite and loved it, great for parents with children, they can explore and run wild all day, the 10:30 close down is strict, but welcome, better than our previous experience of people 'f'ing n blinding till 2am cos there drunk, the peace and tranquillity was bliss.
We stayed up later (as you can) and was quiet, we chilled out with a beer round the campfires (yes, campfires allowed in the allocated spots) the... (read more)

Terrible, Fisherground Campsite is far too expencive for what it is. The owners and wardens are rude and misrable. Charges occur for everything,especially the showers and washing machines which are overpriced and dont wash your clothes properly. If they could get away for charging for breathing they would!
You are bombarded with endless rules which include no noise after 10.30.
A beautiful place spoiled by misrable and greedy people who are non child friendly and lack people skills.
Obey... (read more)

The wardens on Eskdale, Fisherground Campsite are more like prison wardens, they watch you like a hawk.
Our two tent party had all of our tickets displayed o the tents and were approached and were asked if we had extra guests and had we all paid.
we were asked to keep the noise down at 5past 10 even though we were only chatting at a reasonable level.
there are are so many rules it makes you feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.
we are all seasoned campers and never have we come across this sort... (read more)

If a military style camp, juxtaposed against a stunning backdrop of sweeping green valleys and deliciously crumbly mountains is what you seek in a relaxing break, then Fisherground Campsite in Eskdale is perfect.
The luscious, seasonal greenery, the winding, narrow roads and the gentle sound of the rustling trees, like that of a babbling brook echo an idyllic dream. Pair this with campsite owners that have a regime that would give any authoritarian dictatorship a run for its money and you... (read more)

Scenery - Breathtaking, has to be seen to be believed,
Fisherground Campsite- Good facilities. I have wonderful memories of holidays here with my parents. Now aged 26 the site sadly hes an oppressive feel created by the owner who is watcing at all times.
I will never return here.
Quiet after 10:30 is usually respected by most campers but here it is enforced OR ELSE! Of course these are my opinions. Try it for yourself but please try one night first and have your answers prepared for the cross... (read more)

Fisherground Campsite is set in a beautiful location in the Eskdale valley this campsite has many plus points. It's not one to encourage late night party people but great for young families, climbers and walkers, all of whom need a good nights kip.

10 years ago Fisherground Campsite was a great place to stay. It was child friendly and there were less restrictions. Now you tend to find yourself being told what to do. Not the best campsite in the lakes (read more)
