We just came back from a bh weekend stay here. We were really impressed with the location and views. Amenities very good, kept clean and well stocked. On site freshly done pizza, wood for sale 6-7 only. Rules meant no noise after midnight which guaranteed you a good nights kip. Easy to find and not far from nearest village to stock up. Not at all far from the walks up Snowdon. Highly recommended, will be going again soon!

This is a fantastic campsite with amazing views of the valley and lake. We camped here on the 1st April and there were only two other campers on the very large site. Although the weather was a bit nippy we still had a wonderful time, especially as we could light our own fire!

Would definitely stay here again

We got married at Llyn Gwynant campsite early July, and it was a truly magical occasion. The location is absolutely stunning and the barns are a fabulous and unique space. We were on a budget and wanted a space that we could make completely our own, with the help of a small army of friends and family, and this was completely perfect. We brought our own decorations, food and drink, music and all our friends and family chipped in to make everything perfect. We had friends and family travelling from all over the world and wanted a space where we could all stay together for a few days, so our group camped in the field next to the barns, slightly away from the main campsite, which was perfect. The staff were kind, friendly, helpful and went out of their way to help us when we needed it. People hiring this venue need to remember that this is a campsite, not a fully serviced hotel – you’re hiring a beautiful blank slate that you can make completely your own, to your own budget. But getting married at a campsite also means that you need to leave the place spotless (and I love that Llyn Gwynant has such high environmental standards, it’s part of what keeps the place so beautiful), and you need to be considerate of the hundreds of other people camping nearby. I would also add that you need to be considerate of the fact that the staff are running a campsite, not planning your wedding for you.

I stayed here for a wedding and the location is fabulous, even though the facilities are very basic I'm very easy to please and this would have been a glowing review if it wasn't for the owner's shocking behaviour to the wedding party on the day we were due to leave. There was a huge group of us clubbed together to muck in with the cleaning and leaving everything spotless. The campsite has a strict 11 AM checkout policy which is fine, but at 10:45 we had prepared the bags of refuse to take to the bins when a member of staff removed them and then tried to charge 30 pounds for their trouble! Even though we were pretty much the only ones there they were hounding us to leave before 11 AM. We had meticulously removed every scrap of rubbish from the campsite yet the staff were desperately searching for a stray cigarette butt as an excuse to keep the party's £500 deposit. They had also booked the venue long in advance and paid, and yet the owners kept changing the price and trying to charge them more. It absolutely ruined what had been a very beautiful and magical wedding, and I think it's disgusting to be so mean spirited to people who had paid a small fortune for their dream wedding and who had been so adamant about leaving the place clean. Fortunately the bride's sister stepped in and reminded these unpleasant people about consumer rights and they grudgingly gave back the deposit. Shocking, and I am very sad to have to say such negative things about such a beautiful place.

Its basic and has had its up and downs over the years. if you want a top class busy campsite then this isnt for you but if you want a back-to-nature holiday then its a good stop off. Would rather caravan/camper than tent here but still a beautiful location

i havent camped for years, so as a spur of the moment thing i told my 14year old son to get off his PC as we were going camping and hiking. i found this site on the internet and drove down. site was easy to find and we were greeted by a friendly aussie girl who told us to camp anywhere we wanted. we pitched near the lake. it was quite a busy site, but there was plenty of room. we bought some wood and tried but failed to have a camp fire. eventually, we gave up and gave the wood to the guy next door who moved his fire nearer to our tent. the fire keeps away the midges, which are there because of the lake. you really cant moan about these, this is the wild outdoors after all. my son loved not having to wash for a couple of days and slumming it. there was even a guy selling pizzas who arrived in the evening. after we got up we drove to llanberis, got a bus to pen y pass and walked up the miners track to snowdon and then down llanberis path back to car. we both had a wash when got back by jumping in the lake. it was cold but fun. toilet facilities are basic but adequet and better than when i was a kid when we used to dig a hole for a toilet. most people on site are quiet at night although a few tend to stay up talking quite late, but we heard no music. llanberis is quite a distance from site, so make sure you bring everything you need with you

Room Tip: if you camp near the lake, you get a wonderful view of it when you open your tent up in the morning

-amazing, lake-side location, 10mins drive from Snowdon (pen-y pass).
-pitches unmarked, car to be parked at the verge of tent field, no option to fix the tent near car.
-fire pits and timber available on site (£4 per large bag of timber), so most of the tents had bonfires next to them, but no burnt grass, excellent.
-facilities poor- toilets ok (saloon style door), only 6 showers for whole campsite, constant queues. showers 'outside' at the back of the toilet building, very basic, dirty, spider-webbed, door not closing properly -cold. leaky shower.
-freshly made pizza available on site.
-part of the campsite consists of very wet boggy ground, try to keep closer to the lake rather than other end.
