Enjoy the tranquillity of the Snowdonia National Park from this peaceful rural site.

Our Bala Club campsite boasts an idyllic rural location just outside the eastern boundary of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and six miles north of the lake after which it is named. Surrounded by amazing scenery, Bala campsite is the ideal base for exploring the attractions of north Wales.

The pretty and secluded 50 pitch site is level and well maintained with a good range of facilities including toilets, showers, laundry, a small children’s play area and a small dog walk. A short drive away, the town of Bala offer a variety of shops, a petrol station and places to eat. Sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and fishing are all possible on Bala Lake and there are good walks and cycle routes from here too. Bala Lake Railway and the Ffestiniog Railways are great ways to take in the local scenery.

Less than an hour’s drive from Bala campsite is Snowdon, Wales’ highest peak. Scale its heights on foot or catch the train to the summit.

Local resorts with good sandy beaches include Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Harlech, Barmouth Fairbourne and Aberdovey. 

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This review is for Bala

We would not fault anything about this quiet, small campsite. The staff were lovely, the facilities clean and well organised. The site is just off the main road out of Bala, so convenient and easy to get through and you can not hear the main road at all. The only criticism I would have was that the price, given that it was the end of season, was a little steep.

This review is for Bala

From the moment I arrived, the owners were lovely and friendly. as it was near the end of their year, it so peaceful even with other people there. the facilities were vwry good and cleanliness was 10/10. if I went off for the day they always spoke and asked about my day or if I needed anything. Great village nearby and a beautiful lake too as autumn sets in. if your in North Wales, even if it's slightly out of your way, you have to stay here.

This review is for Bala

The only minor faults we could find with the site (neither were really faults) were that the grey waste disposal for motor homes is rather awkward to use and we were unable to get a TV signal. I know TV isn't important to a lot of people but if the weather is a bit grim, or the evenings are long and dark, it is a bonus! However we found the site WiFi to be excellent and managed to stream TV through our Ipads which, as we have annual WiFi, didn't cost us any more. Those with better aerials/satellite dishes possibly wouldn't have this problem. Bala is a lovely site and has access to some beautiful places, especially Bala lake and the railway there. We had a lovely meal at Plas-un-Dre in Bala.
