Roadford Lake Campsite: Dog friendly

General

  • Watersports, high ropes adventure course and archery
  • A short drive from the historic market town of Launceston
  • Free hot showers, undercover BBQ area, play area and on-site café

At a whopping 730 acres, Roadford Lake is the biggest watersports lake in the south west and has all manner of aquatic capers, including windsurfing, sailing, rowing, canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding. There’s no shortage of action on land either, with a high ropes adventure course and archery.

There's plenty of kit to hire here, as well as instructors whose time can be booked if you need a bit of a hand. Those with their own kit can bring it along and hit the water for a small fee – please ask at reception for details (third party insurance on your own craft is essential, please). For land activities, ask at reception when you arrive as these require minimum numbers. Spectacular lake views can be admired from picnic spots or waterside trails, and more adventurous bike trails are in the forest across the lake.

In case of overexertion, head to the licensed café. Getting there is a matter of a 30-minute walk along a footpath that's also suitable for bikes and some pushchairs. (Please be aware there's one rather steep section and the final leg is not paved, so sensible footwear is advised. If you'd rather drive, the journey is doable by car in a few minutes.) The play area is also on this side of the lake.

Roadford Lake Campsite is right on the lakefront, with modern showers, an undercover area for barbecues, a play area and the usual washing-up, disposal and recycling facilities. There's also a separate field available for groups. Dogs are welcome as long as they're kept on leads.

To stock up on food and drink, local town Launceston is within easy reach and several village pubs serving food are easily reachable by car.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

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

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    Great scenery, handy for Dingles Fairground Heritage Museum.

    Disliked: 

    Was a bit restrictive for the dogs as they were not allowed in the water, which is understandable as it was a reservoir. Communal changing in the shower blocks mase it feel like a school swimming pool.

    Disliked: 

    The older toilet/shower facilities. The more modern block is much better, however, be aware shower changing area is communal , a bit like a sports centre in the 1980’s! But adequate.

    Not alot the lake was interesting. We stayed for 3 nights 2 of which we were the only people there on the 3rd night there were 2 vans, yet on pitchup it said there was 1 pitch vacant. Why!!!!!

    Disliked: 

    Showers changing area open plan. 1mile walk to the cafe through rhe woods where in places the path was overgrown 2 seats on the way were covered in green alge and lichen. No signs saying whether the water was drinkable or not. Chemical toilet emptying had not been cleaned in quite awhile covered in leaves and debris.

Local attractions

Due to its handy proximity to the A30 and its setting on the Devon and Cornwall border, Roadford Lake Campsite is a nifty base for sightseeing, seaside days, city shopping and active days out. It’s easy to dart across to the moor from here too, to check out Canonteign Falls and the ponies of Dartmoor National Park.

Head north or south to explore the Devon and Cornish coasts: comely fishing villages, fab surfing beaches and large stretches of the 600-mile South West Coast Path are within easy reach. Tintagel Castle, said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, would make a good place to start.

Under an hour’s drive away are Exeter, Plymouth and beach towns Newquay and Bude.
