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).

Very welcoming Stewards, good pitches but a little close together in the hardstanding area.

This review is for Bala

Very welcoming Stewards, good pitches but a little close together in the hardstanding area. Excellent new facility block, very clean, private wash cubicles, couldn't fault it. Not a lot to do in the nearby vicinity, other than to visit the lake. But the nearby garden "Caerau Gardens" just a short distance along after turning left leaving site , is well worth a visit, only open on certain days. They also own Gorwelion Activity Centre with a lovely Cafe which is Near Bala and is open every day.

This review is for Bala

Just returned from a wonderful 6 night stay on this club site. Small site, excellent spotlessly clean facilities, and very friendly helpful staff. Secluded location but close to everywhere for activities. Short run into Bala and under an hour to the coast. Absolutely ideal for us. Certainly on our "return to" list.

This review is for Bala

I would recommend this site to anyone, the best we have stayed on and the facilities are 5 star. Phil and his team are really wonderful people and nothing is too much trouble for them. The only complaint if I were to have one was the very poor TV reception which most of the time was non existent, but the WiFi was good so we watched TV on our ipad. But an amazing place which I would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you for an amazing holiday.

This review is for Bala

We were looking for a quiet peaceful site with easy access to Snowdonia National Park which was exactly what we got. It was lovely, the staff were friendly and the site and facilities were very clean with newly refurbished toilet and shower block. Co-op in Bala handy for food and drink. Snowdon Mountain Railway fully booked all day when we went there, so would suggest booking ahead online if that is something your thinking of doing. Most of the scenery is stunning, but we loved the drive through Betws-y-Coed to Llanberis which was a particular highlight.
