Why stay here ...

One of the best kept secrets on the network, Dockray Meadow Club Campsite in Lamplugh puts you within easy reach of lesser-known lake gems, such as Cogra Moss, Ennerdale, Loweswater, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Derwentwater and Keswick. With its scenic surroundings of hills and trees, the caravan park offers a great getaway for the family. It is also a great choice for dog owners with lovely walks from the site.

Dockray Meadow Club Campsite has a little something for all tastes. You may opt to unwind alongside the tumbling stream, watching the red squirrels dart about. For the more energetic, there are plenty of walks from and around the caravan site where you can take in the glorious fell scenery. Cyclists won't be disappointed, since the Coast to Coast Cycle Route is a short distance away. Other excursions within easy reach include the St Bees Head Nature Reserve, several nearby National Trust sites and the lovely old market town of Cockermouth, famous for being the birthplace of William Wordsworth.

Please Note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Warden to the rescue!

Dockray Meadow Club Campsite
As new motorhomes, on our first trip, we chose Dockray Meadow based on its location, size and facilities such as motorhome service points. The location is lovely and peaceful, and site kept extremely clean and tidy. The dog exercise field with agility equipment is a bonus too. On our arrival the warden explained the site and facilities in detail for us. We settled in on our chosen pitch. We had a refillable gas system fitted by the dealership prior to purchasing our motorhome, together with the plumbing for a standard bottle too. We presumed (perhaps naively) that they had filled it with LPG. They hadn't. So, when the gas ran out midway through cooking our tea, the warden very kindly came to our rescue with a standard bottle. A lovely stay, assisted by friendly and helpful wardens. Thank you!

One of the best

Dockray Meadow Club Campsite
A beautiful site servicing the NW of the Lake District. The balance of wild meadow area vs manicured lawn is just right and the wild flowers a welcome treat, Both sets of wardens we met during our 12 night stay were perfect for the job; really helpful and friendly but not intrusive. It is a shame that, like many others, the site closes before autumn will have finished because the woodlands and lakes will look at their very best at that time of year. A couple of warnings however, many of the pitches are uneven and you may need a lot of wheel chocks and corner-steady supports to level your outfit. Also, you may enjoy it so much that you lose track of time and accidentally stay an extra night!

Peaceful, some great walks

Dockray Meadow Club Campsite
A lovely site, walk behind the site up to the lake. Take the logging road up the hill - the views are spectacular! Deer in the fields and noisy woodpecker chicks being fed close to the road. Will definitely be back.

Keep off the grass

Dockray Meadow Club Campsite
It was a little out of the way you couldn’t just nip out for a coffee or food. Warden concerned about his grass., and loved being out regularly on his tractor. But on the plus side a quiet site so had restful evenings
