Camping The Golden Lion Inn & Lakeside Restaurant

Nestled away next to the manicured gardens, overlooking Stithians Lake, with picturesque views and a short stumble to a great meal and a cracking pint, The Golden Lion Inn’s Campsite offers some of the most essential requirements a camper demands.  The Golden Lion has it covered with plenty of space between pitches and electric hooks ups all round. Centrally located between Redruth, Falmouth, Helston and Truro, The Golden Lion is a great place to set up base.

Being conveniently located in central Cornwall, Redruth, Falmouth, Helston and Truro are all only a short drive away. With so many sights to see and with so many activities to do from the historic Cathedral in Truro, to the endless golden sands of Gwithian beach just outside of Redruth and the breathtaking views of the Minack Theatre at Land’s End, to the tropical tours of the Eden Project in St. Austell you really have the pick of the bunch all on your doorstep.

The Campsite is located directly next to Stithians Lake where it is the ideal spot to set off on many of the area’s rambling trails or walking and cycling routes that take you around the resevoir, or activities like Bird watching in some of the bird hides located around the lake. With bridleways for Horse riding and plenty of opportunities for Fly and Coarse fishing and of course the Water sports centre where there’s Canoeing, Sailing and also Windsurfing for the thrill seekers.

Whether it’s a quick 1 night stop over or a week’s holiday for all the family, The Golden Lion Campsite is the ideal location, with electric hook ups and all the amenities on site you could ask for, we are ready to take the hard work out of your time away so you can concentrate on creating memories that will last a life time.
