This was our second visit to Mynydd Du, this time returning with a group of 6 tents. Once again we weren't disappointed even though the weather wasn't great, the new campers in our party weren't put off.

The site itself is pretty basic with the toilet and wash facilities clean although situated furthest away from the camping field which can be a pain if your caught short in the night and you don't have your own toilet facilities. That said the views from the camping field more than make up for anything else the sight might be lacking in.

There is a small park in the camping field although our children had much more fun rolling down the hill on a bike left behind by previous campers!

In our opinion the campsite is perfectly situated, Criccieth which is beautiful is 2 minutes in one direction and port madoch a short drive in the other. There is plenty of shops and supermarkets near by.

For anybody with children over 4 we would definitely recommend a trip to Glas Fryn Park which is only a short drive away. There is no admission fee and all activities are paid for individually. Our 6 and 16yr olds loved the archery and go carting whilst our 4yr olds loved the bowling and play areas. Looking forward to going back next year and having a go at the watersports!

Although basic I think Mynydd Du will always be one of my favourite campsites mainly because of the amazing views, relaxing atmosphere and the fab location.

Just spent 4 nights at this site, 6 of us in 3 tents on a well maintained field with extensive views of Snowdonia and Cardigan bay. Considering it was a Bank Holiday Monday, the site was not full or over busy. Locally there are shops and supermarkets and a host of 'touristy' things to see and do just a short drive from the site.

I found the site to be lacking information such as a local map free wifi and the fact that the wash room gets locked at 9PM. Even a bus timetable would have been nice. Just the usual stuff you'd find on many other camp site walls.

The field is serviced by ONE water tap so it's worthy to note that you may need a water container. My personal dislike was carrying washing up pots 150 metres through the caravans to the wash room and laundry. Electric supply is spot on and powered lighting and cooking without tripping or fading. Barbecues are allowed.

On the whole an exceptionally active break, only using the site in the evenings for a meal and get together for 'Sundowners' A hassle free site which I would visit again.

Just spent 3 days at Mynydd Du Caravan Park. Really good site. Clean. Well set out. Great views. Good for motor homes, caravans and camping. Toilet blocks are clean and well up to date. Easy walk into Criccieth by road or coast. Only slight problem is they didn't tell us they had free wifi but hayho. Well worth a stay. Will return again

One of the nicest caravan/camping sites my family and I have been to. If you like views of the sea or views of mountains, or both then this site is a no brainer.

The showers and toilets are the cleanest I have ever used on such a site. There are also plenty of electricity and a drinking water points, along with a playground area for children.

There are no pubs on the site which is fantastic so one doesn't have to put up with that type of commotion.

Criccieth is about a mile walk and Porthmadog is nearby with a large Tesco, Aldi and Lidle at hand along with camping shops for all your camping needs. Beddgelert is about 6 miles from the site and you can view Mount Snowdon from two different roads leading out of that very beautiful village.

I can't praise this site any higher as it is superb, however.

When we arrived it was 8. 30pm and asked if there was any room. After being told that there was we paid for 4 nights. We liked the place so much that after our 4th night we decided we wanted to stay for another 3, but were told that we should have left the site by 11am, which wasn't mentioned to us before hand. We were given ''another office'' telephone number to phone to see if we could stay for a few more nights which I thought was rather odd. So as I stood outside the site office and called the number for the 'other office', the phone at the site office rang and stopped when I hung up. I found that rather strange as I would have expected the people in the site office to answer their phone that I could hear ringing (maybe I am missing something).

My wife and I felt a little hurt by this treatment. If the site had been fully booked, all they had to do was say instead of being told we had to leave, we would have happily accepted that instead of the way we were treated at the end of our abrupt end to our otherwise perfect holiday.

This is why we can't give this site a 10 out of 10, a real pity. We are unsure now if we want to go back there again for the reasons stated.

This was our first visit and first impressions were great. Views from all areas of the tent field are stunning, we chose to pitch in the centre of the field as were were in a group but for campers wanting more privacy there is plenty of room to pitch around the perimeter.

With the spectacular views of the mountains and sea from different points around the site you really feel as though you've got away from it all, however access to Criccieth and Porthmadog with an Aldi, Lidl and Tesco is only a 5 minute (if that!) drive from site. Free wi-fi is also available.

The only negative points we found relate to the toilet/shower block. This is at the end of the site where the caravans are - so the campers without toilet facilities have to walk the furthest. Can be a bit of a pain with small children - especially in the middle of the night! There were no mops provided to clean the shower floors after use so they got pretty mucky throughout the day and the shower water was very hot!

Aside from this, we were really impressed with this relaxed, friendly and well maintained site which we will certainly be visiting again.

Lovely large partially sloping well kept field with plenty of electric hook ups. Although those in middle of field may be a bit exposed.

Toilet block is near entrance to the site, which is a bit of a hike if you`re pitched at far side of camping field! Toilets were reasonably clean and cleaner still if people used toilet brush beside toilet! The showers were free and hot. There was a hair dryer for 50p but was broken when we were there.

Site was quiet when we visited, and although there appeared to be a large number of seasonal caravans on site some were unoccupied.

Plenty to see and do, beach not far at Criccieth, although it is shingle/rocky, best beaches at Black Rock Sands. We went on steam train to Beddgelert, spent the afternoon there and caught 5. 30 train back. A lovely day out, especially if sunny!
