This campsite lies on the shore of Llyn Gwynant lake and beside the Afon Glaslyn river in Nantgwynant - the most beautiful valley in Wales. This is the very heart of Snowdonia.
The mountains are just a walk away so you can tackle the summit of Snowdon or other scenic routes leaving your car behind. Activities such as paddling, sailing, climbing and coasteering are also available directly from the site. Bring your own boats (no charge - but no power boats) or else you can hire our single or double kayaks or Canadian canoes. Group discounts are available and group activities and instruction by arrangement.
Or simply enjoy natural beauty and quiet and relax by your own camp fire. No radios are allowed, recycling is expected and respect for the land and for others is essential. The campsite has a large toilet block, with showers and hot water provided and a washing up area and cooking area (with microwaves and water boiler). Additional toilet facilities are opened during peak season.
Fees for 2020 are £10 per adult per night, £5 per child (5 to 15). The adult fee increases to £11 for school holidays and £12 for the August and Whitsun bank holidays). Bags of firewood are £5 and firepits are free. There is no charge for hot showers.
We don't take bookings for most of the site, except for a small number of electric hookup pitches - 8 for Motorhomes, 10 for Campervans and 14 for tents. The public campsite only ever gets full on bank holiday weekends, but if you arrive on Friday we will guarantee you a pitch.
There is no mobile phone coverage within 5 miles of the site, and there is no Wi-Fi.
Walk up Snowdon directly from the site either south (on the A498) to the Watkin path from Nantgwynant, or north (on the A498) to Pen-y-Pass for the PYG or Miners tracks. Many more wonderful mountain walks are nearby - ask our wardens.
The picturesque village of Beddgelert is a 10 minute drive (5 miles) from the site, Llanberis is 20 minutes and Caernarfon, Porthmadog and Betws-y-Coed are 30 minutes away.
There is great rock climbing near the site, including the famous Lockwoods Chimney - one of the first documented climbs in Snowdonia.
During summer weekends various activities are available directly from the site including guided walks up Snowdon and adventure days where you can try rock climbing, abseiling, coasteering, gorge walking or canoeing with AALA licensed instructors.

Situated on the A498, 5 miles north of Beddgelert, or coming from the A5 turn south at Capel Curig then pass through Pen-y-Gwyrd and proceed down the valley for 2 miles. Note that the turn off from the main road is a sharp right-hand turn and it may be easier to proceed a further 200m to the side of the lake and turn there, driving back up to the entrance. If you use a SatNav it will most likely send you to the wrong end of the lake - about a mile out.
