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 is the best campsite we have been to in our 9 years as members.

This review is for Bala

This is the best campsite we have been to in our 9 years as members. The team truly live up to The Friendly Club, they could not do enough for everybody. Although there are always rules at campsites they did not make you feel that you cannot move without getting in trouble. The site is peaceful, relaxing and well maintained. It's only a short bike ride from Bala or about 45 minutes walk. There is a children's playground. Great campsite to bring your dog/s. It's that good we have booked to go back in a few weeks.

Good location for exploring this area of Wales, which has a lot to offer. Town of Bala about 4 miles, nearest pub about 3 miles. Big thank you to Phil for his excellent recommendations, and friendly smile! The site managers do an excellent job of keeping the site pristine. Great stay, we will return.

Really enjoyed a weekend at the Bala site. Very friendly welcome, site was clean and tidy.

This review is for Bala

Really enjoyed a weekend at the Bala site. Very friendly welcome, site was clean and tidy. Plenty of space for kids to play and for us to relax. Bala is a lovely town a short drive along the road. Plenty to do both on and off the lake. We really enjoyed the train journey from the head of the lake to Bala and back again. You can ride on the footplate if you wish. We were tempted. Ice scream was exceptional. Great weekend had by all.
