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).

Beautifully maintained site which is well sheltered by trees lining the site.

This review is for Bala

Beautifully maintained site which is well sheltered by trees lining the site. This was particularly evident in our last two days on the site when the wind and rain came. Our tent was very well protected. The toilet/shower block is a bit dated compared to others on C & C sites with only one sink cubicle. However they were always clean with lovely warm water. Staff as always were friendly and helpful. Bala is a lovely little town with places to eat and a Coop and Spar. There is also a leisure centre with pool at the end of the main street on the left. We didn't try it but it looked nice. Whilst we were there, myself and my 12 year old son climbed Snowdon from Llanberis (1.5 hour drive) on a lovely day - great achievement but very exhausting and it took us 7 hours up and back down!!! Wear good shoes. We also tried Segways for the first time at the Segway adventure place at Bear Grylls academy - brilliant fun. Perhaps a bit pricey at �30 an hour each but well worth it. The Centre for Alternative Technology was also worth the visit and really kept my son occupied with lots of interactive things to do.

This review is for Bala

I was expecting more from this site although clean needs up dating. The children play area was of little use and the children could not play ball games. The shop was only good for milk and ice lollies, no frozen food like fish fingers that site is for adults really not good for families. Staff were friendly and they themselves thought the shop should have more as the nearest shop was 4 miles away.

This review is for Bala

We visited on the 3rd week of our summer camping break with an 8 month old, a 3 year old, a tent and a large dog. The wardens couldn't have been more helpful when we arrived and we had a lovely pitch with plenty of space. The toilets, showers and washing up area were all kept very clean and were perfect for our family, we were be specially grateful for the large sink in the baby room which allowed our little one to have a decent wash! The site is in a lovely quiet location and is well kept, with pretty flower beds, a small dog walk and a small play area with a couple of swings, a climbing frame and a slide, perfect for our 3 yr old. 10 minutes drive from the town of Bala which has everything you would need and 10 minutes the other way to a great pub recommended by the site team. We couldn't have asked for more and would definitely recommend this site.
