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.

Graham and Tina the camp attendants helped us rig up our awning (first use for us).

This review is for Bala

Graham and Tina the camp attendants helped us rig up our awning (first use for us). Many thanks. One snag. We couldn't heat the caravan and awning up at the same time without the electric tripping.Bala town close by with great butchers (Roberts) and lovely lake. Snowdonia a drive away but do-able - visit Bedgellert village - lovely - and a great ice cream palour. We would return but if you want to avoid having to drive there are sites in the middle of Snowdonia which we will be trying next time.

When we arrived at the site, we were given a really warm welcome.

This review is for Bala

When we arrived at the site, we were given a really warm welcome. We were offered a choice of pitches, and were escorted to the chosen one. Because it had been raining we were told we were close enough to the peg so leave it where it was - None of this you must be 1cm from the peg on the rear corner. These sorts of welcome make you feel much better, where rules are not the be all and end all. The site itself is in a nice quiet location (apart from the sheep!), the last half mile to the site is a single track road, its not difficult to navigate but is a bit awkward if you meet something coming the other way. Once on site you are fine. The facilities were spotless with 3 showers in each block never had to wait and they are not of the new push button variety so you can control the temperature another plus point. The kids play area is basic but present. I have only 2 minor criticisms of this site, the dog walk is a bit on the small side, and the exit out of the site is a bit tight once you have gone round the one way system. Bala is 2 miles away and there is a restaurant called Plas-yn-Dre in the centre which is very dog friendly. Its really nice inside and you are not confined to the bar area. The lamb cawl was delicious! If going to Bala lake ignore the lake signs upon entry to the village, drive right through the village and out the other end there is a lakeside car park on the left with a cafe. Parking is �2.50 for 4 hours and you can walk into bala from there or enjoy the lake itself. If you have never been to the area before make sure you visit Llanberis Pass and Betwys coed. There is a nice walk round the lake about 1mile outside betws y coed with parking.

Fantastic site. Very clean and friendly. The stewards were very friendly. Nothing too much trouble, even put up badminton and swing all for children. Ideal for exploring North Wales with most attractions within an hour.
