More about camping in Snowdonia

As well as its impressive mountains, Snowdonia boasts a range of other natural features – rivers, lakes, waterfalls, moorlands, forests, glacial valleys and a stunning coastline. Walking is the most popular activity in the park but climbing, white water rafting, pony trekking and wind surfing are also available.

Mining was once a major industry in the area, nowadays these former slate quarries and gold and copper mines are popular visitor attractions. Several small railways run through the park and provide a great way to take in the scenery including the famous Ffestiniog Railway, Snowdon Mountain Railway and Bala Lake Railway.

There are 17 National Nature Reserves in Snowdonia, more than in any other National Park in England and Wales and some 56 Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

Things to do in Snowdonia

Keen hikers can take on Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and one of the biggest in the UK. While it’s no walk in the park, Snowdon is doable if you’re reasonably fit and used to walking long distance. Make sure you carefully select a walking route to match your capabilities before attempting the long trip up the mountain and back.

There are also several walks direct from our Bala Club Site, including the town walk and a 14-mile walk around the lake using hill footpaths (can be six or eight if you use the Bala Railway in part).

Places to Visit

Enjoy a nine-mile train ride around the lake onboard the Bala Lake Railway. The almost 14 mile Ffestiniog Railway from the harbour in Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is another way to enjoy the National Park by rail.

North of Bala Club campsite, the Conwy Valley Railway Museum at Betws-y-Coed is a great family day out.

Head south to the south west corner of the national park for the Centre for Alternative Technology at Machynlleth - a seven acre site on a former slate quarry CAT is heralded as Europe's leading eco-centre.

West of Bala Club Site the 16,000 acre Coed Y Brenin Forest Park is home to world-class mountain biking trails, waterfalls, picnic sites and historical gold mines.
