Spent three nights at this site and wish we could have stayed another week. The individual, secluded tent pitches were excellent. They all have their own Water supply and electricity hookup. The peace and quiet we experienced was amazing.

The wardens were very helpful and pleasant.

The toilets and showers were immaculate.

The resident caravan owners were friendly and always acknowledged my wife and I.

There isn't a shop on site but there is a shop/post office in Bethel which is a two minuet drive from the site. The owner is very friendly. I went there for some milk but they had sold out. She gave me some milk from her fridge rather than see me go without as it was late ish on the Sunday night. Not many would do that.

It's a five minuet drive to Cearnarfon. We spent most of one day enjoying this beautiful place and castle. North Wales is full of places of interest and beauty to cater for all ages.

It's not too hard to imagine the toilets / showers could be a bit slow to access during high season due to the fact there are only two cubicles and two showers in the mens' block but when we return, and we will, it will be during the off peak period.

We've just returned from Rhyd Y Galen where we spent a week with our friends who were also in a touring caravan. Starting with the positives; the camp was lovely, the pitches are large and fully serviced. WiFi is free, the camp and toilets are well maintained and clean. The location is great for exploring the area.

Unfortunately, there are a number of negatives; the camp was very busy towards the end of our stay, so only one small block of toilets and showers meant that there were queues to use the facilities. There was no real play area for the children, although there was a shed with some table top games but you had to pay for some of these.

We also had other issues; the wardens aren't on site at all times, so when we arrived, we had to call a number to get access through the barrier and then had to find our pitches. One of these was already occupied by a tent, so we had to wait four hours for the wardens to contact the tent owners and get them moved off our pitch. The wardens were less then helpful and there seemed to be a definite bias in favour of the seasonal caravans. Our children were asked not to use their scooters in certain areas and were told they couldn't use the equipment in the shed from dusk, however this didn't seem to apply to children that the wardens knew by name. We were also told that we were too noisy one evening, when it was one of the seasonal vans making the noise, it just happened to be that we had our lights on when the warden arrived.

Having said all this, when we spoke to the office staff, they couldn't have been more helpful. Our issue was with the two wardens, who spoilt the holiday somewhat.

We will return to the area, but not this camp.

Just returned from a week at Rhyd Y Galen, Bethel, Gwynned. There were 3 adults and a dog in our party. The site was very clean, we chose to be in the secluded area. It was very peaceful and pretty. Electric hook up, tap and drain were on each pitch. Toilets and showers were extremely clean as was the washing machine and ironing room. The warden was very helpful. The weather was very warm, I think we were lucky. The site is near to many attractions and the views were spectacular. We will certainly go again.

On entry to the site we were greeted by a security barrier which prevented us gaining access to the site. There was a warden's caravan right next to it and handy telephone numbers to ring if the warden wasn't there. We were allowed to choose any pitch we liked. All pitches have plenty of room with their own water tap, electric hookup and light. The toilet and shower blocks were spotless at all times of the day and night. A really handy facility was the wash room which included a washing machine, tumble drier, iron and ironing board. Dish washing facilities were always clean and tidy. Children were well catered for with a games shed and small play area. There is also a large dog walking area through the fields. There is a small shop in Bethel as well as a pub which delivers meals to the site. All in all, a great weekend and we will be back.

Went for 1 night here just to test out our camping equipment. Chose here because the other reviews I read sounded good.

The campsite is really nice, it has character, not just a big boring field. The pitches are a good size and you know exactly which bit is yours. Its all done nicely with proper paths and lovely greenery.

They have a more secluded area for tents too, which I think we'll pitch in next time we go.

The toilets etc are clean, 4 toilets, 2 showers and 4 sinks in the ladies.

The showers are free and are powerful and hot, the only downside is that the cubicles are quite small and if you put anything on the floor it'll get wet from the shower. There are some hooks to hang things on, but a shelf or a fold down seat would be handy.

Best to wear as little as possible to go and wear crocs or flipflops.

Only saw the the playpark, all I could see was 1 swing and a climbing frame.

There are freezers you can use next to the bins in a barn thing.

Caernarfon is only 5/10 mins drive away. We only went to waitross for a few bits.

All in all a nice quiet park which we would recommend to others.

We used this site for our summer holiday in July 2012. As you can imagine the weather left much to be desired apart from one afternoon of glorious sun.

The site is situated about 10 minutesí drive outside of the town of Caernarfon which we found handy for picking up the odd thing from the local shops.

The site itself was set in beautiful countryside with a great view of Snowdonia. The pitch we used included our own water tap (a commodity that we greatly appreciated) and the electric hook up.

The toilet block was on the small side but always clean and we never had to wait to use the facilities. It is a testament to this site that even with the rain we had that we had and have no complaints and were always comfortable.

I would recommend anyone wanting to stay in this area of Wales to give this site a try.
