Lakes & St.Bees - OK to visit?
July 07, 2020, 12:34:36 pm
I've got my copy of Greg's amazing Lakes Bouldering guide, and truth be told I'm getting a real urge/need to visit the Lakes in the next couple of weeks. I'd love to boulder at St.Bees and maybe do a days walking/easy trad in the mountains. Anyone know what the state of play is in the Lakes for visiting? Will van or wild camping be tolerated, and if so where is good over that side? Alternatively, any campsites reopened, say Wasdale or Eskdale way? Want to go but don't want to upset locals etc.

Currently planning a trip for late August, so in a similar situation. My understanding is that the campsites have been pretty heavily booked so might need a bit of checking around. Not sure about wild camping though.

Good knowledge folks, got the nod from a local source on an acceptable wild camping spot, thanks.

It's a trap Dan, don't fall for it!
