    I'll start with the positives as this could be such a lovely site. There are stunning views of the lake, well looked after toilet and shower facilities and good access to the lake for kayaks/boats. There is a little shop on site but bala town...More

    **WARNING** The owner of this campsite is very rude and aggressive. Without introducing herself she started rudely integrating me about what caravan I was using. On another occasion she started shouting at my children for wasting water. A normal person would talk to the parents...More

    Questions & Answers
    Hi, I hope,you don't mind me messaging you, but it seems like you might be a good person to,ask given the amount of time you have been to Glanllyn. We are really interest in staying there for,a week in August. We have two children who will be 11 and 13 and are both sociable. We have inflatable canoes/paddle boards and sail and windsurf - we are all water babies and like back to basic fun and self entertainment whilst away. I wondered if there are generally other children here? Also do you know where might the best place to be with a caravan and awning to get good views of the lake, are there pitch numbers? I have looked on Google Earth but I'm not sure where might give lake views. Finally do you know how much it costs to go on the lake and is there anywhere to hire any equipment there? Kind regards Kerry
