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, a playground, and 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.

Coronavirus update: Additional cleaning measures are in place to ensure guests' safety. Toilets, showers and other general communal areas will be cleaned and sanitised at least three times a day, and the site will be keeping up to date on all guidelines issued by government.

    The campsite is in a great location over looking a lake. The site is clean with all the facilities needed for a great stay.

    I would recommend this place to anybody.

    Disliked: 

    If you need to use public transport this might not be the place for you, as bus times are very varied and getting back is a real problem.
