Roadford Lake campsite is an AA 3-Star graded site with panoramic views of the 740 acre lake. Ideal for the watersports enthusiast with windsurfing, sailing, rowing and kayaking but also perfect for those seeking a peaceful countryside break.
If you prefer to stay on land, there are beautiful walks and cycle trails at the lake as well as a licensed café and visitor centre across the water which can be easily reached by the lake ferry(NEW for 2011).
Anglers are well catered for with boat and bank fishing facilities at this stocked brown trout location.
There is an additional field available for scout groups.
Facilities include modern showers, wash up, disposal and recycling facilities, new undercover BBQ area, 10 electric hook-ups and 9 hard standing pitches. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.
Great activities / places of interest within walking distance
At the Outdoor + Active Centre we offer brown trout angling, sailing, windsurfing, rowing, canadian canoeing, kayaking and a 24-seat passenger ferry. We've also got brand new "WOWBALLS", where you can experience walking on water!
Our qualified instructors are on hand for tuition, self launch and hire.
The Centre at Roadford is a magnet for groups and individuals wanting to enjoy the water and learn new skills.
Of course there is also a children's play area, surfaced cycleway to the dam and cafe for light refreshment, sandwiches, snack and drinks. This is a campsite with plenty of open space for family and group games. Campers can also enjoy many different walks around the lake with breathtaking views along the way - perfect for stopping and having a picnic break.
Great activities / places of interest a little further afield
