Great time

Buckley-Salt, Rachel - 18/04/2024

The park has great facilities, a decent number of showers and toilets quite central to everyone. On the bank of the lake easy for launching for water sports. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. We like making our own entertainment and this is exactly what we got to do. Definitely go again

Easily accessible, great site with good clean facilities. Loved the fact it was on the lake shore and with a safe cycle path to Bala itself. Helpful friendly staff. Great to have good motorhome service point and recycling facilities. We'll definitely be back!

Had a lovely 3 night stay with family and friends. Lovely freindly welcome on arrival. Showers are hot, wash room immaculate. Nice little shop. Great that it is directly onto Bala lake. We had hoped to spend long weekend canoeing and wild swimming, but alas the weather beat us, high winds and constant rain. Will definitely be coming back. Thank you.

Beautiful location and very clean

Alders, Kelly - 09/04/2024

5

Wonderful family holiday, we camped for 4 nights and found lots to do. 5 and 3 year old kids loved having the play park on site and skimming stones into the lake. The staff were very friendly and the toilets and showers were very clean and well maintained. Close to a steam railway, ice cream shops and takeaways when we got stuck in rainy weather. We took a longer trip to Harlech Castle and beach which was a wonderful day out for the kids but not necessary as there was so much to do around Bala. We would highly recommend for campers.

Easter Break

O'Sullivan, Theresa - 08/04/2024

5

The campsite is beautiful with the lake is short walking distance from any pitch. Toilets and showers plentiful and cleaned regular, they were immaculate. The shop is well stocked and the staff are so helpful and friendly.Unfortunately for us the weather was not too kind and so the pitch was very muddy so we did leave early. However, without the torrential downpour we could have stayed all year. Stunning scenery and peaceful place. Already planning our return.

Lovely location, unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side but everyone was friendly. Facilities were immaculate, sites well looked after and maintained to high standard. Local town a little run down but still plenty of things to do. Great location for getting out on the water.
