  • A pub 100 yards away serving homemade food

You’ll get flapping brilliant views from your tent at this site, where the pitches look out over the 275-acre Stithians Lake.

There’s loads of space around the site for family games and picnics, as well as a pirate-themed children’s playground, walking trails around the lake and a bird hide for confirmed and wannabe twitchers.

The range of activities on offer at Stithians Lake Campsite makes the site ideal for groups. The limpid waters have excellent sport for fly fishermen, who can cast from boat or bank for sizeable brown and rainbow trout (rod licences required for the over 12s and a small charge applies for all).

If coarse fishing is more up your street, Argal lake is about ten minutes’ drive from Stithians: purchase a day pass for fishing and enjoy the great café on site. Pedal-driven recreationalists can cycle along the off-track road to the dam.

Visitors can also try out a wide range of watersports with the help of the jovial, qualified instructors at the Outdoor Active centre. Windsurfing, sailing, rowing, kayaking and walk-on-water balls are all on offer: bring their own kit or rent it on site. Back on dry land, campers can also do some climbing, or have a shot at archery.

Rid yourselves of the rumbles at the on-site café and refreshment kiosk, or have some of the homemade specials on the menu at the Golden Lion pub, a mere 100 yards away.

For further activities, check out the local indoor swimming pool and gym, the crazy golf at Swanpool Beach, and the energetic escapades to be found on the many other golden sands nearby, from coasteering to scuba diving.

The shower and toilet facilities are shared with the watersports centre and are a very short walk from the camping area.
