was planning on an overnighter in lakes tomorrow but due to the chance of finishing work late may just be forced to stay in keswick and have a cheeky few in the Dog and Gun before heading out and bivvying in the hills on sat night.

Anyone know of anywhere cheap(on a budget due to my mate just having triplets) we could camp or stay around keswick within a short walk to pubs if all else fails on friday night. The campsite on crow park road is not taking any bookings for tents

I stayed at the Braithwaite campsite which is only a short walk from Keswick centre and has a couple of pubs on the doorstep. Full facilities. Was good. I think I stayed on a Bank hol though and we had a load of skinheads on scooters there. It would have been ok except one bloke tried beating the crap out of his wife all night. But that would have been a one-off. It was a good site.

Good luck,

Phil

In reply to David Cowley: Yeah just bivvy near the lake. There is a lay-by below falcon crag, park there and then head down to the lake. You never get any hassle because you are out of sight. It's small shingle which is nice and comfy! We often go down there and have a fire/sleep/smoke/beer.

I've stayed, it's fine. Easy drunken walk back from town. Has flat pitches, toilets, showers, nasty coffee from a machine. All good! I'd phone and see if they've shut for the winter though.
