 We booked this site to be near Caernarfon which we wanted to visit. The warden was friendly and helpful. Our pitch was very big and level. The park seemed to be mainly seasonal caravans with a separate camping field, and all was fairly quiet during the day.

However, the website claims to have "top quality facilities" which they definitely were not. The showers worked ok, but they were not clean (black grouting) I think the most they got was a quick mop out with the very old dirty looking mop. I found a couple of the toilets dirty with no toilet paper.

The website also gives the impression of wonderful views, but unless you are right at the top of the site by the gate (all seasonal pitches) there are no views at all. There did not seem to be any rules about noise at night. There were two big groups gathered outside their seasonal caravans on both nights we were there making quite a bit of noise well into the night, and children whizzing around on their bikes in the dark too.

While none of these things are a desperate problem, we didn't really enjoy staying there and left a day early. Disappointing.

 This is a brilliant campsite, the warden Joe works really hard to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay. It is in a great location, is a very peaceful site and we loved being able to have a campfire each night. We would stay here again.

 Had 4 nights here and I think it mainly for tourers. The site is clean and maintained well but its on a slope with the camping area at the bottom where it is flat. When we arrived it must have been raining a lot for a few days because the area was all boggy and squelchy under foot but it was peaceful and secluded.

The toilet/shower block was modern and clean (apart from spiders and webs on the ceiling) but was a good 2 minute walk to them and even further for those not on EHU - not good when your bursting in the morning (would be an idea if they put potaloos in the carpark) Also take a good torch as even though there are lights on the pathways they are not very bright. They do allow dogs but there were no poo bins (I didn't see any) so you have walk to the top of site where all the rubbish goes and nowhere to walk dogs off lead. Overall not a rubbish site but not for us and won't be going back

 Went there end of july, very nice site went on electric hookup with water tap. Plenty of room and private, in area of trees and bushes. A quiet site but there is an area for children to play games. Toilets very clean and a place to wash and iron clothes. Would recommend the site for those who like a quite clean holiday. We will visit again. The only draw back is that it caters mostly for caravans, but tents are very much welcomed.

 What a fantastic site. wardens very helpful and friendly. wish I could have stayed longer. My child is disabled and needed oxygen equipment delivered to site which arrived before us, the warden looked after it until we got there then kindly delivered it to our pitch. On our last day just as we were nearly loaded to leave the warden appeared to collect the oxygen equipment, what a gent.

Would recommend the site to anybody. toilet blocks clean. loads of hot water. the views are great. nothing bad about this site.

 Just returned from a fabulous 4 nights at Rhyd y Galen. We found the site very well-maintained, toilets/shower blocks immaculate with great hot water supply, same for the pot-wash area. Although there are 6 or 7 tent pitches, we were the only ones there so could choose which we preferred. Very quiet except for the birds, from 4. 30am onwards - not unpleasant though. About 10 mins drive to Carnarvon for Morrison's/Asda etc. Well located for great day trips - we did Beddgelert, climbed Snowden and went to Beaumaris on Anglesey whilst there plus a stop in Llandudno on the way home. Ordered an Indian takeaway for delivery from Y Bedol (5 mins up the road) one night, very nice! Would definitely recommend this site as a good base for this beautiful part of North Wales. Liked the fact that each tent pitch had its own water and elect point so minimal trailing cables etc.

 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.
