Just a warning, I booked this evening and no electric hook ups available!
Suggest people book a.s.a.p. If not already done so! See you there folks!

Strange, I've just booked, I booked a hard standing hook up, (only one left) but there were hook ups in the other field but no non hook up pitches available!

I'm even more confused now, I've found 3 web sites, swlakestrust.org.uk, swlakestrust.co.uk and pitch up.com. Pitches can be booked on both the .co.uk site and the pitch up site, and each shows different availability but pitches cannot be booked in the .org.uk site!

If you don't want a guaranteed pitch with or without hookup then you probably can rock up on the day, especially if there's overflow into the scout field or similar. Perhaps the locals could find out about overflow camping.

It's best to use https://www.southwestlakes.co.uk/camping/roadford-lake/ because you can book a specific pitch (open the Site Camping Leaflet to see where pitches are).

I booked last week and got pitch 12, which is hardstanding with lekky and behind the same hedge as you Lois.

It does seem like the availability is telling lies :roll:
