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).

The wardens keep this site beautifully.

This review is for Bala

The wardens keep this site beautifully. With homegrown flower plantings and spotless toilet blocks. They were very welcoming. This site is in South snowdonia and as regards a site for walking or visiting the area we did not find it as convenient as the one we had stayed at in North snowdonia earlier in the week.

Small site was busy but peaceful aided by mature trees which make smaller areas.

This review is for Bala

Small site was busy but peaceful aided by mature trees which make smaller areas. Good base for exploring delights of North Wales and Snowdonia National Park and all the Lakes. Great walking country and some spectacular drives, specially route to Lake Vyrnwy. Need to drive to Porthmadoc or Ruthin for a large supermarket, tho Bala has smaller Coop etc. small shop on site. Would happily return.
