Wild camping lake district

If you like a bit of peace and quiet, wild camping in the lake district can be a wonderful experience, especially in mid summer when you can relax and take it easy, enjoying the summer sun “if you hit it lucky” in beautiful tranquil settings. There are loads of different locations to choose from. One particularly nice spot would be Blake Fell in the Western Lake District. It can be accessed either from Loweswater Village on the Corga Moss reservoir. The views from Blake Fell are absolutely breath taking, over the other western fells. Another favourite location would be Sprinkling Tarn, whilst the easiest route would be via Sty Head or Grains Gill. It can also be accessed from Seathwaite via Stockly Bridge.

Finding a sheltered spot is usually the best option and preferably beside a stream if possible. Wild camping in the Lake District is normally tolerated high up, so there shouldn’t be any problems.

Although consideration must be taken into account regarding waste and keeping the Fells tidy. After all the country side should be kept the way we found it. So as a generic rule if you carry it up you can carry it back down again. So no matter what part of the Lake District you end up in to do your wild camping, it will undoubtedly be a brilliant and unforgettable experience. So happy camping and always remember to have the proper equipment, i.e. walking boots, waterproof clothing, map and a compass.
