Lakeland Outdoor Club : Visiting Site

The Club rents the site March to September. Club membership is inclusive of camping fees - no extra to pay.

The site is only 50 yards from the beach (sheltered by some sand dunes), the beach is not naturist, though we do use it with discretion. Members and visitors are expected to take shorts or a towel etc. to cover up should a member of the public appear on the beach. Only the site itself is naturist – after the second gate.

At £50 a year for a couple (£30 single),for unlimited camping, it must be the cheapest naturist site in the UK. There is even a £2 discount for BN Members. With the visitors' day fee of £8 including overnight camping, it compares very favourably with camping and caravan sites anywhere, CL's or otherwise. It's worth joining even it's only for a quiet weekend escape, or a base to explore all what the area has to offer.

Essentials... Note that there are no facilities on site

Camping at Lakeland Outdoor Club naturist site

Water : You have to bring your own water to the site. Water is available at the Rugby Club (you pass this on the way in).

Electric Hook-ups : No electric hook-ups available on site.

Chemical Toilet Disposals : A chemical toilet emptying point is available at the Rugby Club. Chemical toilets can also be emptied on site by burying in a hole well away from the camping area (green fluid only). Ask a committee member for where this can be done.

Caravan camping of Lakeland Outdoor Club naturist site

Shopping : Millom has a fair selection of shops, including Tesco's and the Co-op. There is also a local Spar and Post Office in Haverigg.

Pets : Dogs love it on site and the beach, but they must be on a lead at all times. Clean up any mess after you. Cats also have to be contained, this is to protect ground nesting birds and other wildlife.

Caravan Spares and Accessories : Bardsea Leisure in Ulverston has an extensive range of camping and caravan spares and accessories.

Barbecues and Fire Baskets : Disposable barbeques should be placed on bricks (eg pebbles from the beach) to avoid scorching the grass underneath.

Generators : Please use with consideration for other club members and visitors. Caravans are usually pitched well spaced apart so this is rarely a problem.

Day Visitors : For those who don't want to 'rough it', there are a number of bed and breakfasts and guest houses locally.
