 Absolute awesome site.

Janice was wonderful and so helpful even before we arrived.

 Nice site. Stayed here for a night this summer.

Site was well equipped and presented, and pleasant staff, an on site shop, and was an easy walk into town.

Excellent. Would happily go back.

Reviewer: LR2007 28 reviews from this member

 Arrived on site, easy enough to find although the entrance isnít as large as it looks on their website, pictures make it look huge!

Our booking was made by phone and we were a little disappointed to find that we had been booked on one of the smaller pitches even though we have an 8 metre long motorhome so we didnít get one of the new larger pitches as shown on the website.

Slate pitches we were on could do with some updating as the hardstandings are quite small and you step out on to grass (or mud from the last residents awning in our case) as they are only a few metres wide.

Pitches are very close together and lots of trees on site too. The site does have a new shower block and I was expecting pristine. Cobwebs on the shower room entrance inside, a layer of dust on door and shower dividers etc could have been cleaned better but the cobwebs had gone the next day.

I would personally prefer a more in depth clean rather than complimentary shower gel/shampoo which Iím not going to use.

Not a quiet site as near a very busy noisy road. Add that to the constant dog barking opposite us and the fact that there is a dog running freely around the site starting all the other dogs off barking didnít help either.

At a sensible pace itís a 15 to 20 minute walk into town with our dogs sniffing every blade of grass on the way! The lake for those that like the water sports is just a few minutes stroll with a very handy cafe.

Railway also very easy to get to. We would book again for a short stay only but lesson learnt we would make sure that we had one of the newer larger pitches which we prefer (and what we though we would get from their website photos) with our larger vehicle depending on the expected weather conditions.

 We found the campsite to be very clean, safe and quiet.

Great little find away from hustle and bustle of Lake Bala.

Shower / bathroom facilities are exceptional.

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful stay.

 Very pleasant, facilities very shiny and niceÖ.

Felt £39 for 1 night was a lot of money though.

No views from site which was a shame.

Good location for town though

Reviewer: GTalbot123 4 reviews from this member

 We camped there for 3 nights this week. The pitch was on a very gentle slope but was easy to peg out and you can park next to your pitch. The roads on site were recently tarmacked and the caravan pitches had new slate shingle.

The toilet/shower block was refurbished last year and is probably the best one I've ever seen, with 3 large showers. The block is kept impeccably clean and the bins outside are emptied regularly.

It's more expensive than I'd usually pay but the site location is totally fantastic for walking, the steam railway, the water sports and the town centre. We'd never tried kayaking before but will definitely be doing it again.

We were made very welcome by the regulars on site, the people of Bala and the 2 ladies who run the reception, especially Janice who is a fantastic host.

Ok, if you have young kids then this is probably not the place for you as there are no ball games allowed and there's no play ground, but it was perfect for my 19 year old son and I. We've made memories that we'll treasure for many years to come!
