I've only stayed in Mrs P's in Nant (the large one across from the Vaynol), and that was several years ago. Anyone care to give any opinions on any of these campsites? Bearing in mind it's for the early May B/H, are any likely to need booking?
Gwern Gof Uchaf. Showers are free and reasonably clean.
think it has gone up to £6 per night now
Toilet facilities are limited - havent used the ladies so I cant speak for that
Bank holiday do tend to get very busy and you cant book. There is a likelyhood that you go to sleep with plenty of space around you, wake up finding guys (I mean guy lines - but you could be that lucky) across your guys - it does happen.
If you get there early enough on the Friday then there are some cracking little spots to the left of the entrance road, near a little outcrop or by the stream which are quieter. You can also have open fires
Oh, it can be a little damp at times.
Llyn Gwynant absolutely heaving on Bank Holidays - canoeists, families, trippers wandering as far as the lake. Walked through it a couple of years ago on a BH and there wasn't room to swing a cat in a waterproof!
Nice enough site when it's quiter as I recall (stayed once but over 10 years ago), but not one for the BH.
I've always stayed at Dolgam, he tries to keep his site for walkers/climbers and will normally ask the question.
I think I have phoned and booked before - but there is usually loads of room.
Tyn Y Coed is only a short walk down the road with a further two eating/drinking places before you hit Capel Curig.
stayed at the gwern gof isaf
a couple of times and found it OK. Clean toilets and showers and not to busy last year. Its great for a walk around the Carnneddau
Stayed at Dol Gam and that was OK. Again not to busy when we stayed during midweek last april. Both these were £5 PP PN. Great views of Moel Siabod.
I am hoping to go to Llyn Gwynant over te May bank holidy with a few others. Expeting it to be busy especially if the weather is set fair. I believe that the youth hostel at Ogwen Cottage has a camping field as well
We stayed at Dol Gam in the end, I rang up on Weds but was told there was no need to book. The site was slightly boggy on Friday evening but drained fairly well, we had no problem finding decent ground to camp on, and the farmer was very happy to bring his tractor along on Saturday morning to drag out the camper van that had unwisely parked up with its rear wheels in a really boggy part!
I hadn't stayed there before, but would certainly return, thought the facilities were pretty good for a fiver a night.
