After a long day shlepping along the footpaths, nothing beats the tranquillity of pitching your tent beside a lake, river or stream and enjoying the calm of the water. Unsurprisingly then, waterside campsites are hugely popular in the Lake District and farmers and campsites are often quick to set aside the best of their waterside meadows for lucky campers to enjoy. We've been high and low in the Lake District visiting campsites and bringing all of our favourites together—whether you fancy lakeside lazing or riverside rambling, we'll know a campsite that's right for you.
