Park Foot Campsite Slipway

Park Foot campsite slipway in Pooley Bridge is a great spot to launch your boat onto Ullswater.

The slipway at Park foot is not your traditional concrete style slip. It is basically a natural looking small cove with a slight incline into Ullswater. The slope quickly become deep enough to launch all small boat types such as SIBs, Ribs and small fishing craft.

The small cove of the slipway offers a bit of protect should the wind pick up. There is also an ideally placed bit of fencing, ideal for tying the boat up when fetching your trailer.

The parking area is plenty big enough to hold your trailer too if you have one. Simply reverse down to the waters edge, launch then park up just metres away. The parking area and slipway is charged at just £5 per day, cheaper if staying longer. Payment can be made by phone prior to arrival at no extra charge.

Its not a bad place to launch your boat at all with it being at the top end of the lake. If you are spending the day on Ullswater you can travel the full length of the lake. As the lake district goes, Ullswater has some amazing scenery and some decent fishing to.

Have fun and stay safe. Always wear flotation aids or life jackets when out on the water, and don’t forget your killcord. Park foot is a great Ullswater slipway to use.

Moreover, if you are looking for campsites near Ullswater or a campsite near Pooley Bridge then Park Foot is a great option. Decent pitches, facilities and family run for many years now.

    Hi, I’ve looked at this post and then tried to locate Park Foot Campsite on a map. The search for Park Foot leads to the Holiday Park. I can’t see exactly where to park on the map. If Park Foot is at the very end of the he lake then please excuse me for asking what might seem to be an odd question but where is it? I’m trying to plan a trip with a boat and would like to book either the campsite or the parking. Your help would be much appreciated.

      Hi Paul, its is on the holiday park. Ring if its just a day trip and pay over the phone. I’ll send you an email with a map so you can see where the launch is.
