Caravan Site Description

Fisherground Campsite is set right in the heart of Eskdale, one of Cumbria’s loveliest valleys. Here on the West side of the Lake District we get less rain and more sun than our famous cousins the other side of Scafell. In this quiet valley there is still the Peace and Tranquility that should be Lakeland – but rarely is in the bustling centres. Here there are still more sheep than people.
