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.

We have just come back from a 4 night stay here- what a lovely site! The wardens are exceptional- v welcoming & thoughtful- we have a twin axle and they suggested a particularly easy site to pitch on. A new toy was put out each day by the wardens which kept our kids entertained for hours. Baby owl naming competition laid on! My children (aged 10 & 12) gave it 10 stars. Spacious pitches, endless hot water (very much appreciated after climbing Snowdon), quiet site. Loved it & would happily return. Agree with previous reviewer- Bala leisure centre lunch was good value & nice, outside sitting area overlooks the lake. Coed y Brenin was about 40 mins drive away and awesome for all levels of mountain biking. Barmouth was a happy surprise too- miles of sandy beach surrounded by mountains. Despite signs to the contrary, there were lots of dogs on the beach.

This review is for Bala

This quiet site has a very peaceful atmosphere, located next to a stream and close to many footpaths over the hills. Its star feature is a whole array of bird boxes which were full of activity during our May visit, we watched mistle thrushes, pied wagtails and tree creepers all day. Bala Lake, with its little railway by the water's edge is just a couple of miles away.

Access is easy and the welcome and assistance from the wardens is great.

This review is for Bala

Access is easy and the welcome and assistance from the wardens is great. The only fly in the ointment for this site are the amenities, I can only comment on the Gents, whilst always clean the facilities are in need over a refurbishment, the showers in particular are cold (no heating)and the fixed shower heads perform poorly in relation to other sites.
