Reviewer: Stepperdoc 17 reviews from this member

Just returned from a fabulous 12 day stay at this site and I am glad to say that I would recommend this site to anyone! The pitches are all hardstanding and fully serviced and (for the most part) level. There are only a small number of touring pitches available as most are taken up by seasonal caravans. The pitches are terraced so views up to Mount Snowdon and across Cardigan Bay are superb. The toilet blocks are located close to the entrance and are well maintained but I feel they could get busy during school holidays as there are only 3 showers for each block. There is one washing machine (3. 50 per wash) and a dryer (1. 50) and two sinks for pot washing. There is a separate field for tents which is quite steep and a long walk from the toilet blocks. There is a security barrier at the entrance but this is not working so site security could be an issue. The site is a 30 minute walk from Criccieth and a short drive to Pothmaddoc where there are ample supermarkets including Lidl, Aldi and Tesco. A great place to go to and very quiet out of holidays during the week. Looking forward to going back next year.

Fabulous few days at this site, absolutely amazing views of coast and mountains to wake up to. Not the biggest pitches we have been on, but fully serviced and reliable electricity, although not many spaces the site was relaxed and very quiet. Very clean shower and toilet block, loads of hot water, shelf and hook for stuff. As someone else has mentioned, would suggest a mop or some way of cleaning floors after showering and leaving inevitable muddy footprints. Lots to do in the area, loved Black Rock Sands where we could drive on to the beach. Porth Madog (10 min walk) great for a wander and shop/coffee, good food at the pub.

We added on an additional day - we had to phone to do this, but we were very grateful when our request was accommodated by some juggling around. Looking forward to returning.

Just had three nights at this site over the late Easter period in our Tent with our two children.

Plus sides of this site is certainly location, open your curtains in the morning and the views are incredible. The Showers and toilets are clean, Showers lovely and hot and modern.

16A EHU most welcome and the owners seemed pleasant. The park was basic but our youngest enjoyed it. Loads of room for football abd cricket which was nice.

Negatives is that the tent field is the far end of the site and the opposite end of the site from the toilets and showers, if these had been central it would have made a huge difference. The access to the toilet blocks was a code pad, this was hit and miss and very frustrating.

The field during our stay was almost empty and gently sloped at the bottom half of the field. However the site is next to a farm and Easter is lambing season and Thursday and Friday night all night was the noise of lambs and ewes crying for each other. Looked lovely during the day but a nightmare at night. Free WiFi was great but sadly it was more Ify than Wify.

Would we stay again? certainly not at lambing season otherwise perhaps

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
