The Camping and Caravanning Club Campsite near Bala

This is a Camping and Caravanning Club campsite that’s in a rural setting a few miles outside the town of Bala, which has the largest natural lake in Wales.
The Bala campsite is smaller than some other Club campsites, with around 50 pitches.

Although this is a Camping and Caravanning Club campsite, you don’t need to be members of the club to stay here.

Our Review

We had an enjoyable weekend staying that the Club’s Bala campsite.

Staying in a Ready Camp

The Ready Camp tent we stayed in at the Bala campsite

Instead of our usual collection of tents, this time, we let the Club do all the hard work and stayed in one of their Ready Camp tents.

Once again, we found extremely friendly and helpful staff at the campsite. We’re finding that Club is living up to its slogan of ‘the friendly club’.

One of the differences with the Club campsites compared to some others is that the people that run the site live on-site too in their motorhomes or caravans, and use the same facilities as everyone else.

Talking of facilities, these were great too.

The showers were clean, hot, and free.

There was also a laundry room, plus a wash-up facility too.

The site had a small campsite feel, with plenty of friendly campers. A place that felt very ‘safe’ for the kids to play.  There was a play park too, of course.

We saw a good mix of pitches for caravans, motorhomes, and tents.

Despite being a rural location, the campsite’s pitches were nice and flat.

Bala is just a short drive down the road, and you can find loads to do in this area.

The kids had a half-day sailing lesson down at the lake with Bala Watersports. The instructor was excellent.

Learing to Sail

We also visited the National Whitewater Centre, which is based just outside Bala. Here you can see kayak slalom courses (and one I remember doing in my youth) and whitewater rafting on some very technical grades of the river.

The canoe slalom

Sadly, it’s too dangerous for kids to do the more technical sections, but there’s a pleasant walk around the circuit and a cafe where you can watch the rafts come by.
