 Great lakeside site. We’re pitched right on the lakeside where you can light a fire on the pebble beach. Lovely welcoming staff.

Good clean shower block, but only 2 showers each for men and women, which could be a problem if site full.

Sold wood for fires on honesty basis £4 per bag. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Lots of tents / families enjoying water sports- all good fun no problem. Perfect if you want to launch much your own canoe etc.

Narrow road approaching site- ONLY APPROACH THE SITE FROM THE BALA END.

 Nice site by lake & river and background hills.

Facilities clean.

Some road noise but was good location as stopover.

 What a fabulous site. The lakeside location is perfect and the kids loved the evening campfires. Really helpful staff, they couldn’t do enough for us. We cycled into Bala each day to go paddle boarding and do some shopping, easy 30 minute or quick 15 minute cycle. Nice open pitches with good distance between pitches. If I could give 11 out of 10 for location, I would!

 Situated on the shore of Bala Lake, ideal for launching small boats, canoes, SUP's. Access is via a narrow stone bridge so worth checking if you have a large campervan. It was busy when we stayed but we were given a pitch without EHU on the waters edge (EHU available away from the waters edge) which was ideal as the weather was calm and we could launch SUP's directly from the camper. Fires are allowed on the beach. Facilities are good, clean and there is a small shop on site. Friendly, helpful team.

 Amazing site!

Location fantastic, big site just on the lake shore, so lots of place and quiet time. Had a pitch near the beach so we could enjoy a camp fire on the lake shore. Have been after heavy rains, yet the fields where well drained and dry.

The team was extremely friendly and helpful, even gave us their own charcoals when we forgot our own.

Facilities extremely clean and very well maintained but might be a bit far from some of the pitches.

 We have been here 2yrs running with friends (a rarity for us as we are VERY picky about campsites and their available facilities). The owners and staff are fantastic and never mind helping when needed (during a long stay when one has to 'shuffle' to save the grass from dying they pitch in to help). We book and pay for 3 pitches for 2 big tents with full awnings and a 4 berth caravan but they are so large we only ever use one and a half placing our 2 tents and one caravan in a group but still within safe fire limits. Leaves plenty of room for badminton/tennis nets and other children's games so we do not miss a playpark at all. Showers are 50p each and require several presses of the button but even washing and rinsing my quite long hair I never ran out of time.

One can purchase the fresh eggs from the chickens frequently seen running around the tents - we made the mistake of leaving our waste bins (one for recyclable stuff, the other for non recyclable including food) outside and found them well pecked the next morning! Fresh milk too.

The lake is amazing and we love the fact it is a mere few feet to launch our canoes from the shore (we tried a site on the opposite side 3 yrs ago but it was a bit of a distance carrying canoes to a launch area). All the dogs (including our two) had fab fun in the lake following their thrown balls, the kids too.


(1) For a long stay another washing machine would be useful(although we used it later in the evening then paid the owners the £3 charge the next morning)

(2) drying facilities are not good, often wet suits/towels etc are left hanging well after they are dry but in any case one could not dry a 'load' in there due to lack of a dryer nor proper 'lines'. I spoke to the lady owner about a dryer but she is very environmentally conscious and did not feel she could justify one so I understand her point of view

We will no doubt be back again sometime during next year!

 This site is perfectly situation right on the side of Lake Bala, there is a small shoreline / beach running along the lake where you can pitch, or the main pitches are further back on grass.

The shoreline pitches do not have electric hookups, probably 50% of the grass pitches have electric. If its important to you worth ringing and checking whats available (the website states they will do their best if you book specifics but can't guarantee).

Loos and showers are very clean and modern. Shower costs 50p for 8 minutes, its a push button shower and every time it stops and you push the button it takes another 20 seconds or so to re-start. Water is hot and good pressure and showers were very clean.

Wardens super friendly and helpful, always around to ask questions etc. No bookings taken at site, you need to email or telephone.

There is a motorhome drive over grey water drain, for some reason a car was parked on the area all weekend so it wasn't possible to use it. There is a water tap at the entrance to fill with a hose and chem disp. Is also at the entrance along with recycling area.

The website says they have wifi at reception, we asked on arrival and were told there isn't any wifi on site at all.

Bala is a beautiful area, plenty to see and do. The small town has several cafes, hotels and some good local shops. If you are going visit Aran Hufen La - ice cream shop opposite the garage. Its the best homemade ice cream we have every tasted.

The site is about 3 miles form the town but there is a great narrow gauge railway that run into town every hour or so.

We really love the location of the site, the wardens are great but there are a few niggly things that if sorted that would really make it worth £21 per night and a top destination.

 A small site next to Bala lake. The toilets and wash area were very clean. We stayed in a tent with no hook up this time, the owners let you charge your phone and freeze your ice blocks for a small donation to the air ambulance. My sons loved the chickens wandering around and the walk along the foreshore. There is no play area but there is a tyre rigged up as a swing. We visited Barmouth and recommend the little train to Bala.
