Just spent a week at riverside camping and although the weather was not great it was a very enjoyable experience . We had 2 touring caravan pitches right next to the river and this was so relaxing especially listening to the water whilst going to sleep at night .
The site is quite spread out and almost all pitches have views if the river .
There was lots for the children to do with the river , playground and volleyball and basketball court keeping them entertained whilst on site .
I enjoyed the fact that you could relax at night and unlike so many sites there was no real pressure to keep noise levels down and you could enjoy yourselves , this does not mean it was noisy just enjoyable.
The site is well located just 5 mins from Caernarfon for all major supermarkets and lots of attractions within 30-60 mins drive away .
Overall a very enjoyable and relaxing time.

My family and I stayed here for a weeks camping. I have to say that it was a perfectly enjoyable 7 nights. The pitches are flat and ground soft enough to peg out nicely. The river offers hours of entertainment for the kids, as does the little park area. The shower area is clean and the water is warm.

Just returned from a weeks stay with our two boys, aged 5 and 9. We had a lovely time and the boys loved their freedom and playing in the river. We were a little disappointed with the shortage of toilets and showers, they were always clean but thy did get very busy at times, (I believe the site was full this week), after 3 attempts one morning to get a shower I gave up! However, the option of playing pool or table tennis when the weather isn't at it's best was great with our boys, as was the availability of the badminton court and play area. We had hoped to have tea out at the cafe on our last night but at £16 for 'fish n chips' this was a definite NO NO, we found a lovely chippy in the center of Caernarfon for half the price with a view of the Castle instead.

Excellent site,the showers,toilets and whole site is impeccably clean.
The cafe/bistro has the most welcoming staff who are willing to talk at length without any awkwardness and the food is amazing,I mean amazing.
Myself and my wife took our 2 kids 7 and 5 years old,pitch 31.River behind,knee deep,perfect for paddling and keeping your drinks cool.
The child's play park is well kept and seemed to keep our 2 entertained.
Lots of families and couples.
Each pitch is large enough for a big tent seating area car space and a little fire.
Seriously not a single complaint could we find,highly recommend this place if your thinking about camping.

This place is amazing. I would highly recommend to anyone. I was camping with my partner and 7 year old son. Arrived at the site and was greeted by a lovely lady who quickly checked us in. We had a brilliant pitch, next to the play area and facing the toilet block (think it was pitch 50) large and flat. As soon as we arrived instantly felt the warmth from other campers. Everyone was so nice and even offered to help us set up! Didn't try the cafe/restaurant on site but the toilet blocks were clean, never queued and large freezer in blocks for freezing ice packs. Very relaxing camp. By 10pm everyone did close up and go to bed. Didn't bother us as we wanted a relaxing break. If you want a nice place to relax, great for children and couples then this is the place. Don't go if u want a wild chav boozy camping trip as this is not that type of place....which was perfect for us.
I will definitely be returning to this campsite and I would recommend to anyone. Brilliant place.

A lovely, well thought out, friendly site with excellent facilities. Clean toilet and shower blocks, washing up points, children's play area, friendly staff, reasonably priced cafe and restraunt, water garden, and dog walk.

We pitched up for one night with friends in a quiet corner beside the river, the only down side to a pitch in that corner was how close we were to the septic tank, which smelt a bit ripe.

We felt a little rushed to leave when the people who had booked our pitch after us turned up 10 minutes before check out time and were shown down to the pitch.

We would definately stay there again!

just returned from our second visit to this site. can not recommend enough. we were worried it may be noisy being peak season but no such worries. we camped close to the play area so we could watch my daughter play. she made friends immediately and was so happy. The campsite is kept clean with cleaners in the wash areas day and night. lovely showers. The onsite café/restaurant is as said a little pricey but the food is good and offers a welcome treat. we went on holiday over the summer to spain and had an awful time. wished we had saved out money and come here. perfect base for llanberis, and surrounding area. we will defiantly be back.
