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).

Only four miles from Bala which has supermarkets and several cafes and restaurants.

This review is for Bala

Only four miles from Bala which has supermarkets and several cafes and restaurants. Llyn Tegid next door for various water sports. We visited and enjoyed the Caerau Uchaf gardens about two miles away in Sarnau. (Don't take your caravan up! It's quite steep and narrow). Fantastic views. Only stopped a couple of nights as a last minute booking to extend our Grand Tour of Mid Wales but could definitely spend longer next time.

This is the best campsite we have been to in our 9 years as members.

This review is for Bala

This is the best campsite we have been to in our 9 years as members. The team truly live up to The Friendly Club, they could not do enough for everybody. Although there are always rules at campsites they did not make you feel that you cannot move without getting in trouble. The site is peaceful, relaxing and well maintained. It's only a short bike ride from Bala or about 45 minutes walk. There is a children's playground. Great campsite to bring your dog/s. It's that good we have booked to go back in a few weeks.
