General

  • With kayaking, canoeing, high ropes, trout fishing, cycling and more
  • Short drive to Liskeard and to the smugglers' site of Jamaica Inn
  • Free hot showers, toilets, play area and on-site café

Bordered by the tors and moors of Bodmin, this roomy lakeside campsite at Siblyback Lake Country Park has a good range of water and land-based activities for all ages and abilities.

Visitors can hire out sailboards, rowing boats, kayaks and sailing dinghies (or bring their own), and there are friendly instructors on site for tuition, if needed. The site also has windsurfing kit and sailing dinghies for hire for the experienced, and you can also launch your own craft at a small cost (please note you'll need insurance).

For two-wheelers, a pretty three-mile cycle path snakes around the lake to make the best of the spectacular views, and is also fully accessible to wheelchair users. There's also a high ropes course for kids (open at set session times), along with two play areas for toddlers and older children.

The peaceful lake by Siblyback Lake Campsite offers excellent walking and birdwatching, and is renowned among fly fisherfolk thanks to its teeming trout. It’s a Trout Master fishery, which means that if you catch a whopper it’ll be entered into the eponymous nationwide competition; see if you can beat Siblyback’s current record of a 10lb 8oz rainbow trout. Even if you don’t net the big one, you should still manage a decent catch: recent years have seen rod averages of three fish per angler. Fishing permits (available on site; fly fishing only) are required for everyone over 12 years of age.

Also on site is a lakeside café serving snacks, light meals and the understandably ubiquitous Cornish cream tea.

Please note

Facilities/activities including wakebording, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and SUP tuition, sailing and windsurfing kit hire, kayak hire are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

No swimming or bathing in the lake. Watersports and other activity prices fluctuate depending on activities and experience/number of participants. For more information please check terms and conditions in the 'Policies' tab.

Quiet site, ancillary to the main water sports business 12/09/2016

  • Liked: 

    The site was quiet and not too big which was nice. Good access to the lake and sporting activities. Showers, toilets and kitchen wash up facilities well maintained and clean.

    Disliked: 

    Staff are more tuned to the water sports rather than campers. Apparently we were overbooked and asked to pitch in the "overflow" field and run our hookup over a fence to the electricity connection. The overflow field was not suitable due to the gradient, we were unable to pitch on a flattish spot. We eventually came up with solution, but it took some negotiations.
    Would
    Benefit from wifi as phone connectivity limited.

    There should be somewhere else to eat
    The cafe wasn't open before 9 am and closed quite early too and except sandwiches they weren't doing any other food (not counting cake and ice cream).
    It would be nice if there was somewhere on the site to go and ha dinner /breakfast

Local attractions

The Lux Park Leisure Centre close to Siblyback has a good pool and runs a range of exercise classes.

Atmospheric Bodmin is the highest and most sparsely populated area of Cornwall, a land of myth and mystery. Close to Siblyback are Dozmary Pool, alleged to be the final resting place of King Arthur’s Excalibur, and the moody Hurlers, three stone circles reputedly formed when a group of men who dared to play games on the Sabbath Day were turned to stone.

You’ll find the highest pub in Cornwall in the neighbouring village of Minions. Also worth a look is Cheesewring, an improbably precarious tower of balancing rock said to have been created by warring giants and saints.

If you’re interested in the more recent history of the area, visit the China Clay Heritage Centre at Wheal Martyn for an insight into what was once one of Cornwall’s biggest industries.

Other potential trips include a tour of the global greenery under the massive domes of the Eden Project, which lays on special activities for kids in the summer holidays, including circus skills, den building and water play.

The seaside resort of Looe, which is actually two towns in one, linked by a bridge over an inlet where you can watch the fishing boats bring in their catch; and the fishing village of Polperro, where cars are banned from the narrow streets, although you can catch a horse drawn carriage to reach the pretty harbour.

As well as the many great beaches nearby, children will enjoy a day at Crealy Adventure Park meeting the animals, scrambling around the play areas, and being spun around and splashed about on the exciting rides.

Must see

  • Eden Project (15.6 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (16.2 miles)
