Roadford Lake Campsite: Main field with hardstanding pitches

General

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

What a site for sorts who like paddling their own vessel…

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, surf skiing and water zorbing. There’s no shortage of action on land either, with a high ropes adventure course, archery and climbing.

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 for a restorative cream tea, sandwich, snack and soft drink or something a little stronger. Getting there is a matter of a 20-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 (for kids up to five) is also on this side of the lake.

Roadford Lake Campsite is right on the lakefront, with modern showers, an undercover area for barbies, a play area and the usual washing-up, disposal and recycling facilities. There's also a separate field available for Scout 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.

    The whole place was amazing. Only stayed for 1 night so didn't see it much in the daytime. Very chilled in the evening.

    Disliked: 

    The showers and toilets weren't up to standard. You have to hang your shower gear outside of the cubicle.

    The site was very relaxed and is right next to a beautiful lake. The sailing and hire facilities were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Although we weren’t expecting a five star site we were surprised at how neglected we found it. The hard standing pitches were covered in weeds, there was long grass and weeds all over the site which made it look very untidy. We found it to be quite noisy at night. Almost every pitch had a bbq or fire which meant that the smoke on the site at night was almost unbearable.

    Small and quiet site
    Plenty of space for tent and awning
    Access to lake for water sports in daytime
    Staff friendly and helpful
    Shower block and toilets close to our tent were clean and plenty of hot water
    Some lovely walks to do together

    Disliked: 

    I would have liked a small shop on site to buy essentials
    One of the two shower blocks was dirtier, I think because it’s used by all lake visitors, it probably just needs to be cleaned with more frequency.

    Lovely setting by the lake

    Disliked: 

    Very few toilet and washroom facilities for the number of campers which were often dirty and unkempt. The site had almost zero management with units pitched right up to others and a lot of noise very late into the night making it very difficult to sleep.The site is run by young water sports instructors who only manage the site when they're not on the water and before they go home. There's no dedicated site management.

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.
