I picked this site for its location and the views and I was not disappointed.

The position of the site is stunning, right next to Lake Bala with hills and mountains in the background.

We used one of the grass pitches because the views were better and the hard standing ones were too near the road. The pitch was large, flat and seemed to have good drainage.

There is a shop selling essentials and information about the surrounding area.

Megan the owner was really friendly and helpful when showing us to our pitch. The toilet / shower blocks were clean and tidy and the showers had plenty of hot water, but the building itself was cold ?

The road system could be improved by putting up more no entry and one way signs as certain people were driving the wrong way around the site.

We went to Barmouth which has a fantastic sandy beach, a small fair and a lovely little cafe on the front.

Bala itself has a number of pubs, a Spar and Co Op. It also has a good fish and chip shop which we used, eat in or take away.

We went for a meal at The Eagles Inn in Llangower, a village 2 miles from the site. A small pub with a good reasonably priced menu. I had the trout which was very nice and the side salads were the best I've seen. It's best to book as I suspect it gets busier in the summer ?

One thing that should be changed is there should be separate taps at the water points for drinking water and waste water.

The weather was kind which is always a bonus !

We did not take our dog with us which was lucky because the dog walking area is far too small for a site this big ?

We stopped here at last minute, as we were passing, baby getting grumpy and wanted to get settled for the night. When we arrived 6pmthere was nobody in reception, we rang the telephone number, very helpful, told us where we could park up and use a hook up. Lovely site. Very flat, very clean toilets and showers. We only stopped for one night, we paid next morning very trusting, friendly lady. Would return for longer stay.

Not far from Bala, lovely position near lake.

Thank you

We visited this site just women and children, with a Motor home & tent. On arrival we were given a nice friendly welcome by the reception ladies and shown to our spot.

There was lovely clean shower&toilet blocks. Washing up area is indoors with plenty of hot water.

The site is lovely and flat so you can see where your children are most of the time.

The lake access is easy, you can just walk in up to wherever ( just my knees ) as it was cold.

3 mile walk into Bala where there is everything you need, and everyone was really friendly. There is a bus service runs about every two hours (cheaper to buy return), you can wave them down outside the site and they drop you off at the gate, the drivers were very helpful.

Our children were aged 11-14 and had a great time, as did the adults!

I would recommend this site and will definitely be going again.

Absolutely fantastic place to go. Everything you need is close by, shop on site, lake is beautiful and shallow for children to play.

Liked this place so much booked again for bank holiday weekend.

Only improvement I would suggest is to re locate the park, as its near the entrance and near a road its no good for small children.

We had a really lovely weekend here. The fab weather helped I am sure. Was all last minute - late check in at 10pm was no problem at all. Owner is lovely.

Really well kept site. Lovely grass to pitch on (we didn't bother with groundsheet as grass was so nice and lush).

Good clean loos and free hot showers.

Really lovely location on the lake. Beautiful, relaxing views. Lots of families and adults with canoes, children paddling etc.

Lovely, happy atmosphere and very quiet after 10pm (but we were not there in school holidays).

Small shop on site for essentials. Co-op in Bala (5 mins drive) for more.

Only downside for us is the children's play area. Looked lovely but was situated outside the security barrier/reception, right next to the dog walking area and the road. We would not feel comfortable allowing a child to go to play there unattended and no seats for adults to sit while watching children play. So not v relaxing if child wanting to go to play there a lot.

If there were a play area inside the campsite then I think we would be back here whenever the sun shines.

Beautiful location with lovely views! The launching beach is also great for the canoes!

The facilities were basic but good and clean and showers were free. The pitches were well maintained and generous. There was a little shop in the reception area selling the very basics.

The cost for the night was a little steep but it was extremely last minute.
