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).

Close to lake Bala with a local steam railway. A trip which we enjoyed very much. A stroll up Snowden if you are up to it !!! The coast is not to far away for a day by the sea.

My first time was in a tent. I was given a beautiful spot.

This review is for Bala

My first time was in a tent. I was given a beautiful spot. I was very happy letting my granddaughter play out on the site. The playground is just the right size. There is lots of information about the area. Clean isn't the word I would use, spotless is more like it. There's plenty to do; Snowdon, LLandudno, Caves and mines, Steam trains and watersports. This year , I arrived with a recently bought trailer tent and no experience of parking it. The site manager said "Don't worry, just do as I say and we'll get you sorted". Wow! 3 moves and I was spot on where I needed to be. Graham and Tina Bland are the most helpful people, I have ever met.
