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).

Tina and Graham made us feel very welcome and helped with everything, from hook-up to filling up with water, as this was our first venture in our motorhome. Tina and Graham, good luck at Clent Hills

This review is for Bala

The site was almost deserted, 6 units on site, my wife had opened gate to let me through and was walking back to our pitch ( about 50yds) with our very well behaved dog when she was told in no uncertain terms to 'get that dog on a lead!' by one of the site managers. There was literally no one else around! Disappointing that the 'Friendly Club' insists on literal interpretation of the rules. We've crossed this site off our list for the future and I would suggest other dog owners do the same.

This review is for Bala

All of mid and north Wales's fantastic attractions are a drive away, maybe 40 to 60 minutes, but so worth the time to go to them. The Eagle Inn at LLanuwchllyn ( far end of Bala lake) are renown for an incredible steak, in fact the food was excellent wherever we ate. There are too many attractions to list but they are all sensibly priced and all worth a visit.
