We regularly review the season lengths of our Club campsites. As such, we have decided to change the season length of this campsite for 2023/24 stays. Please view the updated open and close dates under the 'At a glance section'.

Imaginatively landscaped, the campsite is set within 63 acres of beautiful National Trust woodland. With pitches grouped in open glades and easy access to the fun attractions of Coniston Water, the site offers a scenic, peaceful base for an active holiday that will keep the whole family happy, including its own mini adventure playground for children. Additional activities within the area include cycling, rock climbing, guided pony treks around the fells and much more.

The close proximity of Coniston Park Coppice Club Campsite to Coniston Water is a great bonus, a short walk from the bottom exit gate brings you to the lakeside launching point where you can enjoy watching or try your hand at a range of water sports such as dinghy sailing, windsurfing and canoeing. Coniston Pier, only 1.5 mile away, offers steamboat rides on the Coniston Gondola and boat hire. Several cafes and pubs serving good food are located in the village 1 mile away.

The caravan site is an excellently placed central point for exploring the whole National Park, with its dramatic combination of Lakeland and soaring fells. Needless to say, the walking is matchless and you have a good range of paths to keep you on the go. Birdwatchers will not be disappointed - expect to have your binoculars in constant use, especially in Grizedale Forest.

Great service from Lisa and Graham

Coniston Park Coppice Club Campsite
When staying over Christmas in our campervan Lisa and Graham were on duty and my wife and I cannot say how welcome they made us feel on arrival and during our stay. They’d even created a Christmas quiz! When by mistake I’d left a pair of boots in a nearby lay-by after leaving they went the extra distance to search the lay-bys we passed heading home; all this in the dark!

The best wet weekend

Coniston Park Coppice Club Campsite
At short notice we looked for a site, near to home but with hardstanding due to the wet weather and more rain forecast. We booked two nights at Park Coppice, a site we hadn't visited in years but only an hour from home. We arrived on the one decent days in a long time and were greeted by the wonderful, friendly wardens. In the low season some areas are closed off, however there was plenty of choice of excellent pitches and we found a wonderful sheltered pitch. The site is brilliantly placed for walking - options of all levels either directly from site or a short drive away. We had two dogs with us, but one is recovering from surgery so we chose a gentle walk round Tarn Hows and a lakeside walk from the site - both were fantastic and ticked all our boxes. nearby is the Blue Bird cafe - down by the lake, rather than in the village. This had been recommended to us and did not disappoint. If you have a four pawed companion it is a must as the staff are such dog lovers and they made us feel so welcome despite having "soggy doggies!" We cannot thank the wardens enough for they unceasing pleasant nature and the hard work they put into looking after the site - no easy feat when it was raining so much. We will definitely be back and hopefully for longer!

Lovely stay in beautiful surroundings

Coniston Park Coppice Club Campsite
Really beautiful site nested into the woodland near lake coniston. Staff were friendly, helpful, personable and had loads of suggestions for things to do. Sadly because of the bad weather and not alot of time left on our trip we only got to cycle to the village and have a walk along the lovely lakeside. But the staff suggested to me lots of ideas with great enthusiasm and a definite desire to return and do what we couldn't. Lovely traditional pub in town 'The Black Bull' which brews it's only beer and food looked great although we didn't eat. Fantastic views in the area also just really pretty. Facilities on site were spotless, well maintained and up to date. Showers were nice and hot and was lovely after a very chilly day. Would definitely return.

A hidden gem

Coniston Park Coppice Club Campsite
We got the site as a last minute booking due to the site we were supposed to go to being flooded. We could not have been more pleased. We only had 3 nights here but it felt like we had stayed for a week when we left. Loved the ability to turn up after 10am this gave you almost an extra day. The site is large but well sectioned off with no pitch the same. We had pitch 115, close to the facilities and the Lake for husband and his paddleboard. We got the sun (when it was not raining) on our pitch which was nice and most pitches are lovely and big. We tried the onsite catering facility on our first night and the Pizza's were amazingly tasty, they must be good as the site has bins specially for the Pizza boxes near the service areas. A great site to walk up and over The Old Man of Coniston from, or to just walk or cycle to Coniston. We tried the boat from Coniston, sadly due to the high water level you could not hop on or off the boats as most Jetty's were flooded. The boat trip round the Lake was lovely and enjoyed by us and the dog and next time we want to try the steam boat. Its just a shame the Lake does not have a footpath all the way round like Derwent water but I still enjoyed walking round what I could with the dog while hubby boarded. We never got the chance to try out any local pubs but the Bluebird cafe at the boat launch did lovely food and ice cream, plus its dog friendly. If you like wooded sites that are very nature friendly with great staff and good facilities you'll love this. To us its one up from their lovely site in Borrowdale. Another on our list to return to.
