General

  • Peaceful pub site on the shores of Stithians Lake
  • Award-winning gardens
  • Fishing and watersports available

It’s bottoms up at peaceul The Golden Lion Inn - Lakeside Camping on the shores of Stithians Lake, where you can enjoy a tipple and some top-notch pub grub at the inn just a flower bed away, either in the oak-beamed bar in front of one of the three log fires, or alfresco overlooking the award-winning gardens.

No need to worry either about not catching your zzzzzzzs after an evening out – the pub is food and family-oriented so there’s no concern about shenanigans after closing time.

All pitches are level, and the site also has internet access as well as fishing and (non-motorised) watersports available. It’s within easy reach of local towns Redruth, Falmouth, Helston and Truro, and is less than an hour’s drive from the award-winning Eden Project.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Lovely little camp site with great size pitches. 25/08/2017

    This is a lovely little camp site with great size pitches for a very reasonable price. It is set behind the Golden Lion Inn, which caters for both young and old. The campsite has everything you need for camping, such as showers, toilets, washing facilities, freezer for your ice packs, washing machine and tumble dryer. The Golden Lion staff were wonderful, friendly and very helpful. The Inns gardens and grounds are well maintained and they even have a children's play area. We will be definitely visiting again soon and considering this campsite is open all year, we can visit anytime.

    Friendly staff, great pub onsite, clean toilets and showers. Right next door to a watersports lake which gave us a nice view whilst walking the dog.
    It was quiet when we stayed but the pitches looked to be a decent size and reasonably well spaced.

Great site, would definitely recommend it. Great level pitches 22/08/2017

    A quiet peaceful site. Some pitches close to the pub and beer garden which could be a tad noisy at closing time. I wouldn't worry about this though, it's just a small point. Friendly staff, great pitches. Pub is decent and food is good but do book a table if you can as it can get busy. Great location especially for water sports with fantastic access to the rest of Cornwall. Toilets and showers are currently clean and tidy and more than adequate as the site is small. More loos would be good. The site is currently planning a new larger shower and toilet facility for 2018 which should be put in over the winter months this year and early next. We really enjoyed our stay. It was extremely well priced for a pitch with power for our T5 camper with plenty of room for vehicle and awning. Didn't try the wifi so can't comment on that one. Had a very good 4G O2 and EE also.

    Disliked: 

    British summer time! Can't book weather though......
