We were invited by friends who have camped here on a number of occasions, so we came for the weekend. A bit pricey 39 a night for a tourer with 2 adults, 3 children (5-12) and a toddler plus electric. But on the whole a lovely site - immaculate ablution blocks with free hot showers. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. She provided us with a free fishing permit for our eldest son and explained where her fishing rights ended. He never did catch anything as the river was quite low. The river is beautiful and the forest walk up towards the disused railway bridge is very picturesque. The children had fun splashing about in the river - although there was a rock throwing incident and we landed up taking our youngest son to the local hospital in Dolgellau to have a laceration glued. Campsite is well maintained and quiet. BBQs allowed as long as they are off the ground. Co-op in both Dolgellau and Barmouth for your shopping. We would recommend the bakery in Dolgellau, who make the nicest honey buns ever! Beach at Barmouth was fabulous and with beautiful weather it was packed. The only downside to the weekend was the midges - who ate us alive and were resilient to our midge repellent. On the whole it was a lovely site and we would camp there again!

After reading rave reviews, I was a bit disappointed with this campsite. On the plus side, the atmosphere was good and kids seemed happy. Advertised wi-fi was unavailable which was a disaster for checking weather forecasts and planning outdoor activities. Not enough facilities for size of campsite, which meant queues for showers and washing-up. Dog friendly unfortunately means watch your footing for steaming piles. We won't be returning.

Okay so first let me say that we are a couple, with 2 children aged 16 and 18 and that we have never camped before! We have though, been buying our camping gear over the last year and so felt as ready as ever to give it a go. Our son was working and our daughter decided that we could give it ago ~ minus her! So we brought our Springer Spaniel along instead.

Here goes.

We are lovers of Wales and particularly Barmouth, however we were not that bothered about being near the coast as we chose this trip firstly: to try out camping and secondly: to relax. We booked this site solely on the reviews and to begin I will say that the reviews are spot on. This site is absolutely beautiful.

On arrival: the sun was baking down on us and the lady told us where we would be (middle field). We had requested not to be by the river, but they were also lovely spots. I took Sasha off on a walk ~ within a couple of minutes you are in a lovely small wooded area, with streams and a waterfall. Picturesque! Now although you can let your dogs off the lead when you go through the gate, we kept ours on until we headed away from the river. This was partly due to the river having quite a high drop and we were worried that Sasha may fall over the edge.

Our Pitch: was just lovely (we had ECU). We put up our tent and then had two windbreakers that we also put up. This gave us a little 'tent garden' and allowed Sasha a little bit of freedom. Now if you are in the middle field the ground is harder and so you probably should invest in some rock pegs as I think it would have been difficult without them. Also the cable to our EHU was just a little too short. We were able to hire one from the site (30. 00 deposit), but it's definitely something that you need to be aware of. We are going to purchase an extension lead, ready for our next visit.

Facilities: were fantastic! Spotlessly clean. Lovely warm showers ~ FREE! Toilets were immaculate and sinks and mirrors. There was a hairdryer available at a charge if needed. There were freezers available in the campers kitchen and a tv. There were two huge sinks to wash up in outside and at least two water taps. There was also a small laundry area with washing machines/tumble dryers.

BBQ: they permit these as long as they are off the ground and not on the picnic tables. This site is so well maintained and clean that you hope that everyone sticks to this rule. We had a little firepit/BBQ and bought a bag of wood from them to burn (slightly disastrous for us). We smoked! Loads of smoke, loads and loads of smoke lol, but others had huge fires going, so we think our firepit was probably a little bit too small.

Surrounding area: is beautiful. Most people seemed to go out for the day/part of the day and then return later on. We only ventured to the shops (about 4 miles away). The little town there is small, but well equipped. We used both the Spar and Co-op for little bits during our stay.

People: wonderful! From the owners of the site whom are lovely, friendly and helpful to the visitors of the site to the town. A lovely place to be. The site seems to attract 'decent and friendly' people and everyone we chatted to was lovely.

Although we have nothing to compare this site to and the weather was kind to us, I feel that the warm welcome you get on this site really made our experience a good one. A word of warning though. This site is full of families and children. For us it wasn't a problem as they were only playing and having fun and to see children on bikes and scooters and generally having a ton of fun without computers and mobile phones was just lovely. However if you want piece and quiet then maybe avoid the school summer holiday times. Also most dogs are welcome here, but must be kept on a lead which is expected and is sensible.

We are hoping to go back in October half term (with THERMALS), as it really was such a beautiful site to visit.

The site is clean, on 3 flat levels and the grass kept short. The toilet and shower block is quite new, plenty of free hot water in the showers. We never had to queue as there are more caravans than tents and they use their own facilities. There is a launderette with 2 washers and 2 driers. We camped near the river which was beautiful with lots of trees for shade and in this field you can have campfires. The owners sell bags of logs for 3. 50 per bag. The smoke kept away the Mosquitos, though the wasps were a nuisance when we ate. The owners provide picnic tables (1 per pitch) in this field too. Mostly families with children, some in large extended groups, and a few couples. All very quiet, though lots of children brought bikes to ride around the site on the Tarmac roads. In our field the road noise was a problem early in the morning and we were woken by lorries a lot. The road is just the other side of the river - you can't see it as there is a wall and trees and I don't think it was a problem further up the site. The owners are friendly and helpful, though there are no set opening hours for the office and no shop. Nearest shop 10 mins drive away in Dolgamedd town. Dogs are allowed on leads and owners seemed to follow this. The river was between 6 inches and 2 feet deep when we were there, though we heard that last summer it flooded in the rains. We had a lovely time, though the road noise would put us off staying again.

What a fantastic holiday, it ticked every box. We wanted a site that was secluded, near a river, allowed a campfire, our dog and catered for our large 11 person outwell tent. Mrs Evans was brilliant, we were pitched on the riverbank, 3mtrs's from the river, we had a campfire and were able to put up a fantastic rope swing across the river for the children. Shower block was immaculate, no charge for warm showers. Campers kitchen complete with fridge - freezer - cooker - tv - table chairs etc. Laundry with washers and dryers, logs available very reasonably priced. Cant wait to go back again.

12 miles from Barmouth and 4 from Dolgellau. Beautiful walks from the site within minutes. Slightly more expensive to camp than other sites but you get what you pay for in this instance.

Just back from 5 nights here. Lovely level pitch just above river with fire circle and able to buy logs on site. Free hot showers. Always free shower even in school summer holidays. River great for children to play in except 1 day when we had a lot of rain but back down again by next day. Site drained brilliantly despite the rain. Location good for Southern Snowdonia. Snowdon just over hour away. You do need a car. There are no shops in walking distance but to be fair its probably not a location you would go to without and I liked fact there was no shop for the children to nag me to go in and spend money in. No play area but river kept them occupied. I would stay again if returning to area
