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).

Nice, quiet site, a few miles outside Bala.

This review is for Bala

Nice, quiet site, a few miles outside Bala. Wardens were friendly, even when we were uncomfortably late due to traffic problems on the motorways. We used the site as a base for touring in the car, including trips to Snowdon, to King Arthur's Labyrinth and to Portmerion (where they filmed 'The Prisoner' TV series). We were very impressed with 'Mary Jones World', which we stumbled across while touring. We were already aware of the story of the little girl who walked across the welsh hillside from Llanfihangel-y-Pennant to Bala to buy a bible. The centre (adjacent to Lake Bala) gave us lots more detail about the events. The adjacent town gave us pretty much everything we needed for the week, and even an opportunity to paint our own pottery during one of those inclement days. These are unique reminders of a memorable holiday.

This review is for Bala

We arrived very late on Friday night and were made to feel very welcome. Site was lovely with flowers everywhere all facilities were to an excellent standard and very clean. Ten minutes drive to Bala lake in one direction and twenty minutes to lake Brenig in the other both lovely days out. Barmouth beach was only 45 minutes away perfect location for families, plenty of lovely walks perfect as we have a dog. Would recommend to everyone
