Nice small site, friendly and helpful staff. Facilities a tad dated but very clean and warm. Very expensive for what's on offer. We have dogs and In our opinion not suitable for anything but toy dogs as the dog walk is a tiny patch of grass, all walks we saw from the site are intensively farmed with sheep. Not for us so we don't plan to return.

Great site for the chance to do loads of activities, which are all close to the site, walking, cycling, white water rafting, to name just a few. Myself I cycled around four different lakes all within about 20 mile or less of the site. Wasn't very busy considering it was easter period. Great views all around. Total peace and quiet at night. For a bit more activity and pleasure, bala town and lake close by which cater for this. Quite a few pubs are doted around the area. All in all it is ideal for adults, young and old, as well as children. I heard nothing but laughter from the children whilst I was there.

A good well kept friendly site.

Over the three nights we were there we found no fault at all. Shower and toilet block very clean.

Friendly helpful staff, and well kept grounds.

Will be back!

P. S Even our two dogs slept all night as was so quiet.

This is a follow up to my review from August of last year.

Granddaughter (aged 9) and I stayed at this fabulous site for 3 nights (Thursday to Sunday) in half term week.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and an apology for the lack of any choice of pitch - and were then shown to what must be the best pitch on the site! It was perfect for us being next to the stream at the far end of the site. A bit of a walk to the facilities for some but as it is quite a compact site that wasn't a problem for us.

In my previous review I commented that the grass was a little long. That wasn't the case on this visit, the grass was trimmed to perfection.

As before the toilets, showers, washing up area, etc were immaculate. The hand basins and taps are so clean and shiny I'm sure they must be polished every hour!

We chose Bala partly because it is within driving distance of Chester Zoo where we went on a lovely sunny day. It was very nice, plenty to do and see. I can't comment on value for money as we used our Gold Cards for Colchester Zoo to obtain free entry but I'd guess it isn't cheap.

On our other full day we visited Beddgelert where we walked to the Lake and on up across the hillside. It was quite a challenging walk, some steep rocky sections, but very rewarding with stunning views.

I cannot praise the Bala camp site highly enough, for us it is perfect. My granddaughter loves it and has asked if we can go again and stay longer next time and I'm more than happy to agree to that!

We stayed in the Readycamp tents which we thought was fantastic especially camping with small children had everything you needed for a relaxing weekend. The site itself was beautiful well cared for and maintained.

Our critisim of this campsite was the inability to allow children to play ball games. We accepted the request to only play using a soft ball, then we were told this was not allowed. The whole idea of camping with the family was to mix and play outdoor games. The outdoor play area provided consisted on one swing, baby swing and a slide not something to keep children entertained for long periods of time. Also this area was located next to the dog walking area and chemical toilet disposal area which was open and could be accessed by the children.

A great place to stay for adults but wouldn't recommend for families.

The site is in the countryside down a narrow lane a few miles outside Bala town and even further from the lake. The road into Bala isnít suitable for pedestrians. The wardens were warm and welcoming and pitches were fine. After previously staying at Premier Parks sites the washing and shower facilities were quite a disappointment. Although clean, they were cold, old-fashioned and basic.

The grey-water dumping station was a strange design, really only suitable for either small campervans or motorhomes with a central valve and high ground clearance. We were told that this is due for revision, as the site was originally intended for caravans.

There is a small area for dogsí essentials but this isnít big enough for anything but that. There was no information on any sheep-free walks or footpaths for dog-owners.

Despite the membersí discount this is not particularly price-competitive.

We agree with the wardensí recommendation of the Bryntirion Inn for the best food around, and itís dog-friendly. It is, however, a few miles away cross-country.
